I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband, David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. Currently we have five pets between us. Naomi's two dogs Toby and Teddy and cats, Tigerwoods and Panther and my cat Polly. My dog Cindy passed away aged 16 in April 2022.


  1. I look at everyone’s kitchen in the hopes that it will give me an idea of how to organize mine. I’m insanely short of space, but your kitchen looks a lot like mine. You are also out of space! I was out of space in my kitchen from the first day I lived here. If we’d had the money, we should have knocked down the dining room-kitchen wall and made it into one big room. How we manage to back in this tiny kitchen i have NO idea!

    • Yes, it is the one thing I really don’t like about this house. The tiny kitchen. I had a fantastic kitchen in Geeveston and I really miss it. Of course there are two kitchens here but I get frustrated by the lack of bench space. It’s like living in a flat.
