Born in England, and emigrated to New Zealand in 2005.
I love running an accommodation business ,which means regularly meeting new people. My greatest passion is my other business: I'm a chocolatier! I take great pride in producing delicious hand made chocolates using finest Belgian chocolate and mouth watering fillings.I'm always looking to develop new flavours and (website hidden) August 2011 I was one of the Chocolatiers who took part in the inaugural New Zealand Chocolate Festival in Wellington. In September 2011 I returned to Savour School in Melbourne to learn more about Macarons, and then in October 2012 I was back there again-this time learning about Caramels. You can see more about this on my website: (email hidden) .
I love the beautiful Whangarei Heads peninsula which is home to Andy (my husband) and I. The sub-tropical climate here means cold winters in the UK are a thing of the past, and that we can enjoy outdoor life to the full-with wonderful walks and pristine uncrowded beaches all around us.
We've travelled widely and hopefully we haven't finished yet..! Favourite destinations? Difficult to choose just one, but New England, USA in the Fall was a colourful spectacle.
