I live in New Zealand, I'm married and my husband and I have no children....but we do have a dog (Bruno the Poodle), and a cat (Gus the Birman)!
Back in November 2000, I resigned from a 17yr career with Air New Zealand as a Purser. I am now working as a Private Investigator with my husband - having his own Investigation Company. The work is varied and at times very rewarding as I'm sure you can imagine!
I have an absolute passion for shoes...what woman doesn't??!!!, and fashion generally, including that of Home Interiors and furnishings, and gardens.
I enjoy, among many past-times, art, gardening, water ski-ing, power walking,
and ofcourse...COOKING!!(and entertaining).
I guess my pet peeve would be running late for an appointment somewhere! 10 minutes early = 10 minutes late with me!! So, ON time is VERY late!!!
If I had a month off - no work, and no responsibilities I would buy 2 return airfares to Honolulu!! And spend 2 weeks on Waikiki Beach with my husband and 2 weeks at home in the kitchen!! And entertaining friends and family.
I don't have a favourite dish that I like to cook, I don't think - I have too many to choose from! If I think of one in particular, I'll pop back here and edit this. I do however love savoury food and I enjoy making desserts, even though I don't often eat them myself! (most of the time probably because I've filled myself up with savoury food!!)
The dish I make for family (and friends) that I have become most famous for is......
....well,...I'll have to ask them that!!!
Then I'll come back and edit THIS!
There are many wonderful restaurants and cafes in New Zealand, and 3 favourites I have come to mind.....
.....'ZANNELLIS' (Rotorua) - very authentic Italian cuisine. 'IL CASINO' (Wellington) -
again, VERY authentic Italian cuisine and VEERRRRY 'upmarket'! and 'THE ORIGINAL THAI'
(Wellington) - very authentic Thai cuisine -the chef and staff are from Bangkok.
