Hi, I'm Carolyn!
I'm a busy mum to 3 beautiful daughters (17, 15 & 13). Together with my husband we live in a 150 year old (that's old for NZ) wooden villa in Devonport, a quiet seaside village in Auckland, New Zealand.
I enjoy photography, architecture, movies, catching up with friends for coffee and walking our dog on the beach. Some of my favourite books are "A fine Balance" by Rohinton Mistry, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" series and "The Sound of Butterflies" by Racheal King.
Favourite movies would be the "In Persuit of Happiness","Pay it Forward", "Life is Beautiful"...... Favourite actors/actresses are Antony Hopkins, Tom Hanks, Helen Mirren, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp just to name a few!
My husband takes a ferry across the harbour each morning to work and is interested in sport, history and economics. As a family we enjoy relaxing somewhere warm at the beach and skiing holidays, although we are beginners. Our favourite family holidays have been to Tahiti, Bali and Thailand (so far!). My daughters have learnt a little Spanish, my husband can speak basic schoolboy French and I can speak a little Dutch. We love Thai, French and Italian food.
We are looking forward to our first family trip to Europe this year in 2012!
