WordPress Daily Prompt: 7 January

Do you spend more time thinking about the future or the past? Why?

WP Daily Prompt

I probably do spend more time thinking about the past. Why? Well there are more years behind me than there are ahead and I enjoy looking back on them. There are people I’ll never see again and places I’ll never visit again. It’s nice to sit down and remember the good times I had, the things that made me laugh, the things that were special.

I won’t say I don’t ever think about the future, there are things that I still want to do and will do but one day if I’m unable to get about much anymore at least I hope I’ll have a head full of good memories to look back on.



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.
