The Me Bit

I share my life with my amazing husband, my two Bernese Mountain Dogs, Gina and Azzie, my Romanian mixed breed called Odin, four Budgies called Commodus, Brutus, Gaius, and Aulus, and wild birds, bugs and reptiles.

I love plants, herbs, flowers, trees and the outdoors in general. I’m kind to bugs, rodents, and anything living, really. I’m a staunch animal lover, nature lover, moon lover, and quiet witch. 

I love animals – dogs, cats, horses, birds, snakes, squirrels, even spiders – you name it. Except mosquitoes and ticks. I murder those without remorse.

I row, I walk dogs, I listen to people for a living, and I am learning to fly. I also play computers games (PC Master Race FOREVER!) and blog about my Gaming Adventure.

The Scarlet Witch

I love books, I love movies and TV shows. I am a Marvel girl, but I also enjoy some DC stuff. The Sandman is, in my opinion, one of the best graphic novels ever made. 

I was born in and lived in Cape Town, South Africa, for the first 30-something years of my life until I left for Germany in 2011 to join my husband. I miss home terribly, and my family there, and I also miss Germany.

I have worked as a waitress, a barmaid, a receptionist, IT helpdesk consultant, server admin, disaster recovery ninja, photographer, horse rider and dog walker, seamstress, and, now, a medical scribe.
