I am a French teacher at St. Anne's Diocesan College which is situated adjacent to our home and Jemma's self-catering cottage. I am a keen gardener and animal lover and have two precious small dogs (a beagle and daxie-cross) and two gorgeous daughters who attend the local private junior school, Cowan House, We love living in the village of Hilton and my husband, David is a keen birder. We love exploring the nature reserves in South Africa and enjoy hiking in the berg. Life is precious with so much to learn and so my life motto is Carpe Diem!
