I am a married mother-and-stepmother of three and grandmother of three.
I live with my beloved fellow geek Stephen. Between us we have three kids – Antony, Megan and Bronwen, and three grandkids – Wyatt, Arlia and Jaxon.
Having never exhibited the slightest talent for sports, I find myself in my 40s having been involved in all sorts of activities – running, skating, ice hockey, yoga, futsal, tennis and ballroom dancing to name a few. Since I seriously have two left feet, I am the cause of much amusement to those around me when I participate in these.
I grew up in Christchurch, New Zealand, and although I’ve spent time in other places, I’ll never find anywhere else that feels this much like home.
I used to teach sociology at university. Teaching felt like a calling and I loved it, but it also wore me out. Then I worked for a fantastic little place making kick-ass educational products for companies and learning institutions. Now I work for a health organisation in Christchurch managing an amazing team of dedicated project managers.
The story of my life is complicated, with more twists and turns than a bendy-straw, but if you read the blog you’ll find out everything you need to know, and probably a few more things besides.
