What fictional family would you like to be part of?  (think TV shows, cartoon or books or some fictional family that you admire)

My first response to this was a jokey answer but thinking about it is not a bad choice. The Addams Family. Why? Well, they obviously have plenty of money and they live in a great old house. However, it’s not only that. They are a happy family; they rarely fight with each other and they are a lot more tolerant of the people around them than those people are of them. Most of all they are happy to be who they are.

Which band or artist would you like to play at your funeral or memorial service? (the artist can have passed on too)

I’d choose former Cold Chisel guitarist Ian Moss.

Preference.   Popcorn, M&Ms or other.   Choose something you love snacking on.

I like both popcorn and M&M’s. I also like Maltesers but I’d probably choose Quality Street chocolates or Tim Tams, the world’s best biscuit.

If you could be any supernatural (fantasy) character, what would you be?  (Think Elves, fairies, dragons or whatever)

It would be nice to be a Fairy Godmother and make good things happen for people.


Please share the best advice you’ve ever gotten which you feel ought to be shared with everyone.

When I was in Grade Seven, in Primary School we learned about the electoral system for the first time. I was about twelve. Our class teacher, Mr McLaren talked about the importance of voting. He said that when we were old enough to vote we should remember that our vote was important and that we should make our own choice, not vote for someone because our parents, boss or best friend voted that way.

That was more than 50 years ago but I’ve never forgotten what he said. Maybe not the most important piece of advice I’ve ever been given but definitely up there in the Top Five I believe.



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 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.
