Hi there, I live in a small town in the Karoo in South Africa. I am a granny of 9 and mother of 4. I am a property consultant, but things are very slow with the recession. I love cooking and do my own thing a lot of the time. Reading is the only way to go to sleep. so you can imagine I do a lot of that - 4-5 books every two weeks. The local library is going to run out of books for me to read pretty soon. My other passion is gardening, and I am moving into a new home in two weeks time, which has absolutely no garden, and do I love working with a blank canvas. Oh yes that is something else I do, I am an amateur artist, although if I have sold my paintings and do commissions now and then, I suppose I am semi-professional. I have been in a relationship with a wonderful woman for nearly five years, and I am a very happy chappy. My kids love her as well, which makes me even happier. So, that about sums me up.
