While time spent with family can hardly be called a hobby, I do relish our family adventures, which could be anything from exploring somewhere new around Dunedin with our three children, to trying out a new recipe in the kitchen. I enjoy playing the piano and making music with and for others. I am also a relatively new convert to the joys of playing football and love being part of a wonderful women’s team. I enjoy running, mainly for recreation these days and also any time spent in the great outdoors, away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. I have recently reacquainted myself with the humble sewing machine and enjoy experimenting with this. I love creating things and being productive with my hands and find much satisfaction in upcycling furniture.
