About Me.

Thank you for visiting my little space in the blogger-sphere. 

I'm a 30-something, laugh out loud, talkative, food loving, coffee drinking, mama and Jesus girl.

I have 3 kids (Miss Joy, Joe and Zak Zak) who are my greatest accomplishment in life. None of them have been dropped on their heads...and every time they celebrate their birthdays I give myself a pat on my back, happy that I haven't broken one of them...and happy because we eat cake. I like cake. 
I am married to a nice guy, AKA -Hubsta
We live essentially a relaxed life in Northland, New Zealand.

I don't know why I got into this blogging thing, but I like it. It's just another way to express who I am. Through blogging I have learned that I enjoy bringing people together...and helping people connect. 
I also like to encourage other bloggers and to be encouraged. 

I blog about family, food, faith, and the funny side of life. 

I like giving anything a go...taking a picture and showing it off to people like you

Thanks for checking me out...I love reading all your comments and are just generally chuffed that anyone (besides my family) reads my blog at all.

Just in case you wanted to know me a bit better here's 25 random things about me.

1) I am Indo/Fijian-European. Born in NZ
2) I am a procrastinator. 
3) I have 3 half brothers, 1 half sister and a real brother. It is complicated as is my family relations. I am a middle child...I think.
4) I like to fill in forms. Census year is my favourite year.
5) I like a good mocchacino
6) I am married with children.
7) I have bungy jumped and sky dived.
8) I love theme parks with roller coasters.
9) I never call in sick unless I'm practically dying.
10) I don't like really hot(chilli) food, but I love curry.
11) I could cook a family meal when I was 10.
12) I used to spend my holidays (when I was 8-11years old) with an elderly couple on secluded farm up North.  She taught me how to bake cakes and scrub her back... And I liked to...maybe that's why I became a nurse.
13) I got married when I was 20.
14) I haven't found my niche love as a nurse.
15) I have been going to church since I was 7
16) I moved out of home when I was 17 to do my degree.
17) We have had the same car for 9 years. We finally bought a different car!
18) I am very Independent
19) I am not afraid of public speaking.
20) I once played Judas in our school production of Jesus Christ Superstar. I auditioned for Mary. Weird. I know.
21) I can understand Hindi but don't speak it very well.
22) I have never been a bridesmaid.
23) I am not a very good swimmer.
24) I like cheesecake
25) I find it hard to plan my life out in advance. Id rather live for today and let God lead me for the rest.
26) Sometimes I don't like to follow the rules...that is why I have added another random thing...just to be annoying and different. I like to be different... and annoying just for the sake of it.

{I told you I liked roller coasters...a happy face after a ride}

Hello, I saw your blog on Kiwi Mummy Blogs and clicked through from there to read some more about you. How it is possible I hadn't discovered your blog before now beats me, I recognise so many other faces on your followers list, and now there's one more - me!
