"Looking at these photo's you would never have thought I was once a 'city slicker' trapped in a life in the city and with no thoughts of ever going anywhere else. Six years ago that was me, but today i'm a farmer's wife and loving every minute of it. Having gone from being a single mum of one, working full-time and over-time, to make ends meet and support my child, to now being a full-time mum, spending my days outside with my girls and supporting Dean. This is not how I imagined my life would ever pan out - not in my wildest dreams! But I could not have wished for more. Two days are never the same and each day brings with it new opportunities for learning and growing. The support I have received from my new friends and family, from Dean and my family in Cape Town is what has made this life-style change easier for me, but make no mistake the road I have travelled has been filled with challenges. Challenges that have helped mould me into the woman I am today and made me appreciate what I have lost and what I have gained .... and just how blessed I am. Jan 2010"
