I saw this post on Facebook by Alona from Gould Genealogy and thought it would make a good blog post.
While we all think about writing our own history, few of us actually sit down to do so, as it’s not an easy thing to do.
But rather than writing a book, why not write Life Notes! Break it down into topics or lists, and just write down things like the houses you lived in, the various cars you owned over time, the places you went for holidays and the pets you had and so on … and then even if your book never gets written, the information has been preserved.
I’m starting with some of the homes I’ve lived in.
16 Jenny Ave, Dernancourt, Adelaide, South Australia. 1969 – 1973.
Corner of Flaxley Rd and Strathalbyn Rd, Flaxley, South Australia. 1973 – 1987
If you click on the picture to see it bigger you can just see under the peeling paint where a previous owner had painted Flaxley Corner on the roof.
This picture is of the opposite side of the house from the one above.

Flinders Island, South Australia. Governess job 1987.
Callanna Station, near Marree, South Australia. Governess job 1987.
Cawkers Well Station, near Wilcannia, New South Wales, Australia. Governess job 1988.
