Truthful Tuesday: 28 February

Di is our host for Truthful Tuesday, created by PCGuyIV who is currently taking a break from it. She has a simple question.

Would you like to be famous? And if so, what for?

No, I would not like to be famous. I would not like the loss of my privacy, being unable to move around freely without being stopped and asked for a selfie or snapped at the shops. I wouldn’t like being targeted on social media for anything I said or did that people disagreed with. I wouldn’t like to be misquoted or fat shamed.

Nor would I like not knowing if people liked me for who I am or just wanted to be seen with me because I was famous.

If I did something great or good I think it would be nice to be acknowledged but I would not want to be a celebrity.

And that is my very short answer for this week.



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.
