Share Your World 17 April 2018
List things or events that changed your life?
That’s a huge question – off the top of my head these are the major life events that have impacted on my life so far:
Being fortunate to be born into a lovely, caring family complete with grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and enjoying a happy childhood
Getting married to the Mathematician in 1980
Having our three daughters – 1983, 1985 and 1988
Moving our family from the city to a small country town in 1991
Taking our 3 young daughters to live in England (from Australia) for a year in 1992 as part of the Mathematician’s Teacher Exchange program, we’d never travelled overseas before!
All our travels ever since we did this first trip and all the people we have met along the way
Getting a job in a minimum security correctional centre in 1994
Hosting our first Exchange Student in 1997 – Sophie will always be a part of our family
Studying and graduating as a teacher at age 40
Being made redundant at age 56 in 2016
Retiring and finding out that it’s so much fun!!!
Complete this sentence: Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s…
A smiley face hot air balloon.
What genre of music do you like?
I like listening to most types of music apart from Country music. I have moods where I’ll listen to classical music one day, then the next day I might like to listen to loud Australian Rock classics. Music was a big part of my growing up years with my parents sharing their eclectic tastes with us.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?
- We went to our niece’s 18th birthday party on the weekend and had a great time. It included a lovely wine tasting and lunch with a few close friends and family.
- Rain – we finally got some nice rain to fill the water tanks and I took this photo of rain drops from the outside of my glass house looking in. The yellow blob is he cushion on the daybed.
Enjoy your week ahead!
