About Me

I live with my family (a husband and 10yr old son) in a sunny beachside village, Coffs Harbour, Australia.

At home, we own a chocolate labrador. Animals that I love: birds, butterflies, dragonflies, bees, ladybugs, bunnies, magical/mythical creatures. I don't like insects in general, except we're doing a swap on Halloween or an entomology theme.
