This week's resident is:

Name: Shari Hancox,

Occupation: Office manager,

Age: 2209.

Marital status: Almost silver!

Children: Two (21 and 19).

What is one thing you would like to change about the world?

Equality. We are very lucky to live in a country that provides so many luxuries, it would be great if everyone was so fortunate.

 What is your greatest accomplishment in life?

My children, an ongoing and very rewarding privilege.

If you were prime minister/ruler of the world, what laws would you make?

No work at the weekends - everyone should unplug and smell the roses.

No one is indisposable.

23 - with my now hubby travelling the world.

If happiness was the national currency, what work would make you rich?

Healthy family and comfortable living.

What is your best childhood memory? What makes it so special?

I used to love Australia Day growing up. Branding was an annual event and loads of family and friends would visit for the long weekend, lots of laughs!

What is the best sound in the world to you?

Love the sound of rain on a tin roof, need to hear it more!

If you could be transported back in time, where and when would you like to be?

Back to the ancient Egyptians - how did they do what they did?

Who are the three people you most admire - dead or living?

My husband - the most amazing person in every way.

Any of the early explorers - brave and dared to forge their own path.

Suffragettes - those that paved the way for us all to have the life we enjoy now.
