All About Me

me 2013

I am 44, married to Mike and a mum to Koko the cat, who we refer to as Smooch or Smoochings.

I love scouring secondhand shops for china goodies and all things vintage from the 40′s and 50′s.  I adore tea parties and all things associated with tea parties. However I do like to be a rebel and drink coffee in a teacup. I am an avid book reader and can always be found with a book in my hand.

I am a Daughter, sister, niece, aunt, friend. I am Creative, an avid book reader, crafter and an Aries, kind-hearted, thoughtful, quick-witted. I enjoy reading, listening to a variety of music and watching a variety of movies. I like where I am in my life at the moment.

Life is good and the glass if half full.

  7. Hi, I just wanted to say thank you so much for your lovely comment on my site! Sorry it’s taken me so long to respond, I’ve just today arrived in Wellington as my husband and I have relocated to Lower Hutt from Dunedin! So I’ve been without net access for awhile.

    I hope you do give the dahlia a go, it’s so much fun! Send me a photo when you do, I’d love to see it!

    Take care,
