Q AND A: 'Not the nicest wife' praises Nanango husband
WE ALL have our thoughts on how the world could be a better place.
We have all had different backgrounds and different journeys through this thing called life.
In this weekly feature, we ask residents of the South Burnett ten interesting questions about the highs and lows of their lives.
This week's Q and A responses come from one of Nanango's hardest working volunteers and owner of Nanango Real Estate and The Shed, Jane Erkens.
1/ What is something you resent paying for?
2/ What is the best advice you ever received?
We had a young girl who worked with us, she just loved life. She was was killed in a car accident. That showed me to just enjoy every day. My mother had a motor neurone disease and she couldn't even lift her arm to brush an insect off her nose. Nobody knows what's in store for them.
3/ What do you do to relax?
Get away from work, go to The Shed and mix with people in a fun, social atmosphere.
4/ What is one thing you would struggle to quit?
Enjoying life and new experiences. You have one life, as far as we know, and I have a duty to live it to the best of my ability.
5/ What do you wish you knew when you were younger?
Don't worry about what other people think. In the big scheme of things, everyone has enough going on to worry about you.
6/ What is the worst injury you've had and how did it happen?
A broken collar bone when I fell from horse. I was a competitive rider and he landed on top of me. Against the doctors orders, I rode the next weekend.
7/ What would your friends say is your worst habit?
I can't sit still. If we go somewhere, I invite friends but then I just dump them and flit off here and there.
8/ What is the nicest thing someone has ever done for you?
I am not the nicest of my wives because I am always involved in other things, but rightly or wrongly my husband Leo has always stood behind me.
9/ If you could write a new law, what would it be?
A time limit on how much time you can spend online.
10/ What do you do when you have 30 minutes free?
Practice my guitar and sing.
