I live in St Ives - a leafy northern suburb of Sydney in Australia. I'm married to David and we have one son, Luke who is 26 and now lives in the inner city of Sydney with his girlfriend of four years. They both work in media related jobs. I've recently taken a voluntary redundancy from a government job where I've worked for about 11 years in the vocational education field. When I return from our travels I'll seek part time work but as yet am unsure what field that will be. My husband David teaches primary school and will be full time for the next two years before joining me in part time work. We have two 4 year old cats and enjoy gardening, films, reading and good conversations.
