Volunteer Pyjama Angel | The Pyjama Foundation
AKA: Nettie, though my dad called me Spindleshanks.
I’M RENOWNED FOR: Talking lots.
ONLY A LOCAL WOULD KNOW… that I belong to the Townsville Folk and International Dance Group and love dancing.
MY MOST MEMORABLE HOLIDAY WAS… the North Island of New Zealand by car visiting glow worm caves, thermal springs, Hot Water Beach and up to Russell to watch the Tall Ships sailing in the Bay of Islands.
RIGHT NOW I WISH I WAS… right where I am now. Enjoying our spring sunshine because I hate cold weather.
MY FAVOURITE DAY IS: Any day spending time with my grandson.
THE BIGGEST INFLUENCE IN MY LIFE WAS: My father. He instilled a strong work ethic in me, a love of classical music and a strong sense of family.
THE FUNNIEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME WAS… many years ago when my children were still living at home, I returned home after work to a locked house. I walked into my bedroom when a hand from under the bed grabbed my leg. It was my son playing a practical joke on me. Scared me half to death but I saw the funny side of it.
SOMEONE FAMOUS I MET WAS: Piers Lane at the 2017 Australian Festival of Chamber Music.
MY MOTTO IS: Keep smiling at people. It means so much and costs so little.
SONG Dance Me To The End Of Love by Leonard Cohen
