Well that’s not everything but it’s a start.  You will soon learn more about me from my posts.



I came to Australia with my mother and sister Vanda in 1966 from the UK aboard the Sitmar liner Castel Felice. We settled in South Australia I lived in the western suburbs of Adelaide for most of my life. I became very interested in retro items in my twenties. It was always a dream of mine to have an old house and fill it with retro items. I have done it twice now. My main interest is collecting old things. They do not have to be valuable, only interesting. There is something reassuring about old retro items. I have all sorts of things including doll related items. My other interests are my beautiful pets, art and going for drives to who knows where. I also enjoy board games or doing a scenic jig saw puzzle on a wintry afternoon by the fire. My goal is to travel a bit more as there are some places I would love to see

  1. Yay! We both have exactly the same dislikes. 🙂 I have family who live in Romford. My dad almost migrated us to Tasmania when I was a teenager. I’ve often wondered how differently my life would have turned out if he hadn’t changed his mind at the last minute. 😕
