Relationships are very important to me. It is important to start by looking at your relationship with yourself. Do you like yourself? I have a good relationship with myself and am aware that people sometimes find me over-confident, often a result of me getting overly excited about something.
Next one needs to look at is your relationship with your spouse. I am fortunate to have a husband who challenges me, which is vital when you are as strong-willed as I am. My husband’s love language is time together which can, in this busy life, become an issue.
I have three children aged 22, 13 and 9 years old respectively, and as much as I want to take away any pain they may ever encounter, or choose for them what they want; I remind myself daily to allow them to live their life journey and experience what they need to, while always giving them unconditional love.
Friends are so important and I have special friends from school days, university, and now like-minded people I choose to share my life with. Having good friends requires energy, but the rewards are huge.
Cooking is my area of play where I lose track of time my first career was in fact as a caterer. I love cooking with my children and our friends always rave about our dinner parties. I enjoy eating delicious meals with an equally excellent glass of Chardonnay!
Holidays with my family are a big focus in my house and amongst our favourites is diving with good friends at Rocktail Bay, game viewing in the bush at Phinda and exploring the world from a cruise ship. I love birthday celebrations and enjoy dancing parties, “Mama Mia” being my all time favourite dress-up party.
