Bob Karlsson

Business Owner

Likes: Family, swimming, coffee, good movies, travel

Dislikes: Vegemite, dishonesty

About Me: 

InHouse is a big part of me. I started it from scratch and it’s amazing where it is going—thanks also to the others involved. When not at work I have simple tastes: fresh air, a good cup of coffee, peace—and by the way, it’s me that makes the coffee. I’m happy to potter around at home, fixing things. My Saturday treat is a cheese platter by the pool with my wife and poodle. We are now the family elders, as all parents have passed. Spending time with the grandchildren is a good way to pass the time and it’s great to watch them grow and develop.

I was born in Stockholm and have been back twice to see parents and family, once accompanied by our eight-year-old granddaughter, who had never seen snow.

Diane Karlsson

Business Owner

Likes: Fresh air, travelling, reading educational books

Dislikes: Arrogance, selfies, lockdowns

About Me: 

I was born in England, had my 3 girls in New Zealand, and I have been living in Australia for over 40 years, and now have 15 grandchildren and 1 great granddaughter.

I was a hairdresser by trade for 20 years and held various cooking positions for catteries. I worked for a couple of printing companies before Bob started our business, so I wasn’t a complete novice. I love to read books and garden, but the garden takes up most of my hobby time. We have 33 fruit trees on our 600m square block, and they take a bit of looking after.

Bookstore Assistant


Likes: Family, music, and the ocean

Dislikes: Hypocrites, invalidation of others' opinions, and mosquitos 

About Me: 

I am the mother of a Kelpie called Benny, a German Sheppard called Luna and a cat called West. My time is relaxing with my partner at our home or down by the beach, swimming, having cheese platters and/or fishing. 

I love to read, or go for a nice long road trip and go camping.

Likes: Everything about my life now

Dislikes: Snakes (the reptilian type) and two-legged (human versions) and warm wine

About Me:

I am the mother of three very grown children and the very proud grandmother
of three grandchildren all of whom are the lights in my life, and I can never get
enough Nana time I have two little pug cross fur babies Bella and Peggy-Sue and
a crazy galah named Luna (short for Lunatic), who keep me amused and busy.

I have rediscovered my love of life, Parkrun, dance both rock & roll and modern jive
and how much fun life can be with my chosen family of friends who appreciate
me for being me even on my wacky days. I also appreciate my gardening, reading,
dancing and cooking and entertaining my friends and family in my own home.
