I was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. I lived there for 44 years and recently moved to England, to settle with my husband. We got married in August last year. Our second marriage. Between us, we have 5 beautiful children whom we love dearly.
With being a South African, you grow up being outdoors all the time and spending a lot of quality time with family. Being sporty, having holidays on the beach and having family time, is part of our culture. We love being sociable and having barbecues. Andrew and I have a great love for each other, our family and friends, traveling, eating amazing food, drinking great wine and living an active life.
Through my life, I have been confronted with a lot of changes. Being young and newly married, I had to move to a farming community, after living in the city for 22 years. I settled down in a citrus valley. Here I lived for 17 years, raising my kids and building a business. Then after 17 years, I went through my divorce and moved to a beach town on the western coast near Cape Town. This was my home for 3 years while traveling back and forth between SA and the UK. Then after Andrew and I got married in August last year, I packed up all my belongings, put it in storage and moved to the UK with only a few suitcases. Leaving behind my grown-up children, my parents, family, and dear friends. Embracing the new in England, with its weather and culture. Making new friends, and starting a new life!
Change is never easy and it challenges us to move out of our comfort zones. To stretch out to the unknown. To embark on the new. To begin again…
As Andrew and I are embarking on a fresh start, with our new lives and new business, we are scared but excited! We are both 45 years old and after living lives in a certain way regarding work, we are now living a lifestyle much different. We can work from anywhere, travel and spend quality time with our family and friends, all while our business is growing.
May u too, take a leap of faith, embrace change and start anew!
