About me

This is generally my favourite page and the first I head to whenever I hit a new blog or such. And as I now type mine- I feel a whole bunch of pressure to make it awesome!

Right. Well. I was born in South Africa, met my Kiwi husband in London, and have been living in his home town of  Auckland, New Zealand since 2001. That pretty much means that I’ve done most of my ‘adulting’ in New Zealand, and to my horror, during the Rugby World Cup in 2011, I realised that I cared more about the All Blacks winning than the Springboks. This broke my heart a little. It actually still does.

I’ve got two delicious wee nuggets, Leo and Luc, that I absolutely adore! There’s a rather healthy six year gap between them as Luc – bless him – made us work a lot harder to conceive than Leo did (blog coming soonish ;)). I’m so glad we persisted because he has completed our family perfectly.

I’m Aquarius, left-handed and glasses wearing. I don’t exercise enough and eat too much. I love to escape from reality with books, movies & TV – and spend far too much time divulging in that passion. I’m not as deep as I’d like to be, but I’m also not shallow – so I see that as a win. I wish I did more yoga and meditation, and less sugar consumption. I love my BFF like a sister, and I cannot for the life of me drop the one sugar I’ve had in my Twinings tea (#AlwaysTwinings) for as long as I can remember.

Lastly – I LOVE TO WRITE!!! Nothing gives me as much joy as sitting down and knocking out some words. Sadly, there just never seems to be enough time to write as much as I’d like to.

So, that’s me. Thanks for popping over… it’s an absolute delight to meet you. 🙂

Oh, and if you’re here because of the aforementioned writing passion – head this way for a taste of what I can offer, and I’ve also got a grown-up work page that you can find over at http://www.virtualemma.co.nz
