I am a Canadian Kiwi, blessed with the good-life in a small town in New Zealand. Married to Paul for 15 years with 4 children: Sam (9), Madeline (6), Violet (5), Abigail (5). Yes, that's right, I had twins when my second was only 15 months old...naturally, I have a sense of humour! Prior to starting a family, I was an English teacher. Then it was 9+ years of life as a mum, enjoying copious coffees with my friends and exploring my creative side through craft, specifically stamping and making cards. And now with all at school (finally!) I find myself moving on to the next phase, whatever that may be. See what I mean? The good-life.
