WP Daily Prompt: 25 January

List five things you do for fun.

WP Daily Prompt

Here is my list, not in any special order. I haven’t mentioned things like reading or knitting because I do those more for relaxation than fun. I also haven’t mentioned writing blog posts because that goes without saying.

  • Redressing my fashion dolls and photographing them. – A grown up’s way of playing dolls
  • Playing games on the PC – Hidden object games and puzzles or The Sims are my favourites.
  • Playing Scattergories. – Naomi and I often play but we like Scrabble and other board games too.
  • Photography. – taking photos for posts or just for fun and editing. I really enjoy editing.
  • Going to markets and Op Shops to search for “treasure”.


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.
