Who am I???
Just over three years ago I left Auckland and headed to Singapore for a year. He who earns the mone
y was offered an opportunity over there that was enough to tempt us over the ocean. In Auckland at the time we had to make the decision, Auckland was cold and really felt rather boring to me at the time. Maybe that was me, in fact I think it was, I was working full time with three young children, battling a dodgy gate saga and awful complaining neighbours. Sorry Auckland, on re reading this it wasn’t your fault I fell out of love with you, I just fell out of love with my life.
When I returned on the eve of the Rugby World Cup, I discovered Auckland had seemed to change. It went in my eyes from those comfy old shoes that you know will always be there to a new place full of expectations of style and quality (excluding the awful asian cheapie shops on Queen street of course).
My first foray was Wynyard Quarter, where I was blown away with the effort gone into creating an area all Aucklanders can visit. Next up was with the opening of ‘The Store’ by Scott and Jacki right across the road from home, plus the reinvention of Britomart, Imperial Lane and the likes, I’ve decided I am firmly in love with my home city and insist those involved with making it one of the worlds most ‘livable cities’ need to stand up and take a bow!
Who’s in the family?
My devoted husband and he who earns the money in our family.
