Why Hemispheres Apart??


These are my stories – me, people-person and grandmother to many beautiful grandchildren in both Europe and Africa. Living in three places, London, Cape Town and Tuscany is not for the faint hearted, but it is great … and by the way if you want my address it is probably “c/o British Airways”.

For a large part of my life I was a schoolteacher to young children in South Africa. I am passionate about children, how their minds work and how they perceive the world around them.  I suppose that would go for the people I meet too. Another passion is beekeeping, although I don’t think I am very good at it. But my great passion is writing.

I cannot imagine my life without writing, and now I have the ideal setting … these days a great deal of my time is spent living a simply wonderful, charmed life between the Cape of Storms on the tip of Africa, where I grew up, and magical Tuscany in Italy.  

 Please join me in these pages, which are about the many fantastic (and often eclectic) people and places I get to experience, that are Hemispheres Apart in so many ways …

One last thing, a small favour if you please: if you enjoy any of my stories, it helps me ENORMOUSLY if you share it on Facebook, Twitter etc. using the links at the bottom or side of the pages.  It is the best thing you can do for me!  And of course, I’d love to see any comments you care to make …
