I like to think that I got my other half, fellow Red Bubbler Mick Smith into photography but I was only into photographing the children and grandchildren, and now he takes most of the pics and I go along for the ride. Love Facebook and sharing photos and videos of my animals. My first ferret was called Farken, the light of my life (don’t tell the kids). Sadly, Farken went missing in April 2008 at only 18mths of age. I made a dedication to him called The Farken Movie I then learnt how often ferrets get lost, they have a natural curiosity, an ability to escape and no homing skills. Not many people want to take on a baby ferret, let alone an adult one so after that I only took in rescues. I currently only have 1 ferret left, sweet Furo. We lost (as in deceased) Bundy in Jan 2010 and Baba Ganoush in July 2013. And in the last two years we lost Frodo, Fanny, Fergus, Penny and Kiba. They don’t live long enough
Also madly into music, esp that of Mike Oldfield, favourite album Tubular Bells which I first heard when I was just 12 advertising the Exorcist Movie and asked Mum to buy me the ‘soundtrack’. Have had a very unholy fetish for Jesus looking hippies ever since. Ommadawn
Also love newer bands like Cold Play, the Gorillaz, the Dissociatives and many more. Love to play cards and board games, go dancing, socialising with friends and family, writing, nature, bushwalking, my sons, my man, my grandchildren, my furry friends.
Would like to learn about Michaels camera and how to take better photos and be more creative with it. I inherited his Canon 400D when he upgraded to a 5DmkII, which has been gathering dust for a few years now. Would also like to take up Poetry and short story writing, have written one poem in my life, and have written journal entries every day for as long as I can remember. Keen to learn better video editing techniques as well……….
Almost all of the photos displayed on my page will be taken by Mick Smith, those that have sentimental value for me or that Mick simply doesn’t deem worthy enough to display on his page.
My greatest passion is animals. Have moved to a house in 2013 with half an acre and am now building up a mini Sanctuary for orphaned wildlife. Other family members are Wilbur the brush tail possum, Portia, Pixel and Penny ring tail possums, Norman, Vincent and Melba Red Kangaroos (Rest In Peace Neville Malu and Nigel), and two dogs, Molly the Border Collie and her son Dougal.
Went Vegan in 2011. My only regret is that I didn’t become Vegan much sooner and raise my children Vegan.
PLEASE RESPECT ALL LIFE.
