I am a trainee Kiwi having emigrated to New Zealand in 2006 from the south of England. I am a writer and have my head buried in books or am bashing away on my keyboard night and day!
I have grown up children who have flown the nest.
I am married to Jeff who is passionate about boats, cars, wine, good food and conversation! He is a volunteer coastguard here on the Hauraki Gulf.
We both cook and tend to alternate between Thai, Indian, Italian, Chinese and good old Kiwi BBQ's!
We love meeting new people and used to offer BnB in England in our 1810 built home.
We have a friendly little dog called Teddy, he is a 'sweet as' Shitzu x Sydney Silky terrier. We also have two cats, Tu-tu who is a very affectionate tabby and Archie who is a rather elusive Russian blue.
We have travelled the globe and so have a rather eclectic collection of furniture and artwork.
My motto for life is - The more significance you give the moment, the more the moment has the opportunity to be significant...
