Vivian Shields

I left Telopea at the end of 1966; completed a year of "Day Stenography" at Canberra Tech; worked at the Bureau of Agricultural Economics for one year; then a year at A.V. Jennings in Fyshwick; then a year at Max Newton's Publications in Fyshwick; then hopped on the Fairstar and headed for U.K. - away for 2 years; home for six months; over to live in Wellington, N.Z. for 5 years; home for 1 year; back go NZ for two years.

My gorgeous daughter, Olivia, was born January '81. We lived in Double Bay for 9 years; then Palm Beach, Gold Coast for 2; then we married Neville, lived in Kaleen for 2 years; then moved out to Yass in 1994.  

We both love living in Yass. Olivia is currently teaching at Dulwich Hill International School in Beijing; having taught for 2 years at Clackton-on-Sea in England. Before that did her penance at Moree High.  

Nev retired last June; I'm called "Lily Locum" by the retail outlets in beautiful downtown Yass, as I work casually at two different shops.

That's me - I've had a wonderful past, a beautiful present and I plan on having an even better future.
