Welcome to the web site of
Anne Carpenter and
Anne & Paul live in Frenchs Forest, Sydney, Australia. Daisy May, who was Anne's best friend for 19 years, finally succumbed to a collection of ailments in April 2015. In Feb 2018 we acquired Coco, a 14-yr-old chocolate Tonkinese female from the Cat Protection Society. She's lovely, too, and loving life in her new home, as long as she gets attention when she wants it!
Anne has lived in the Northern Beaches area of Sydney all her life. Paul originates from Northern Ireland, lived for 5 years in Harrogate, Yorkshire, and then emigrated to New Zealand in 1974. He moved to Sydney in 2007.
Our site comprises three main sections:
CREATIVE is the best name I can find to cover our disparate "artistic" hobbies, Anne's arts and crafts and Paul's photography.
TRAVEL is sub-divided into Australia/New Zealand and International. Travel is defined as involving at least one night's stay away from home. Day trips are found under Creative.
SERIOUS contains our Letters to the Editor; a section about what the State Government is doing to destroy our suburb, starting with the Northern Beaches Hospital; and thirdly some delicious quotes under the heading of Words of Wisdom.
You can return to this Home page from anywhere on the site by click/tapping on the "Anne & Paul" area in the top left corner.
