Deon and I

Deon and I

After living in Port Elizabeth for many years, my husband Deon, a Psychological Counsellor, and I relocated to Cape Town.  Leica, the ten year old cat, adopted from Tears four years ago, completes our family. I often have to pinch myself to be reminded that we are really so fortunate to be living in magnificent Cape Town – what a good life this city provides.

I am passionate about cooking, cookbooks, traveling, photography, music, animals and blogging, I am a qualified remedial teacher and opened a Kip McGrath Education Centre in Durbanville on 1 May 2014.  It is my passion to tutor learners with learning difficulties, so I am really enjoying my job.

My interest in food was shaped by traveling to wonderful countries such as Turkey, Italy, France, Spain, Greece, etc. and experiencing their culinary delights.  Deon and I would love to be able to live in Europe for at least a few months, but at the moment living in beautiful Cape Town is almost like living in France.  There are many restaurants, shops and markets to explore in the Western Cape, the country side is magnificent and if you need city life, an evening wandering around the beautiful Bo-Kaap or at the Waterfront is all you need.

It is really special when people read this blog.  A wonderful moment was when my former colleague at the Cape Recife High School in Port Elizabeth, Nina Timm, who is known as the “Kuberkok”, asked us to chat to her on RSG (a radio station) about the blog.  In search of a good life, the name of the blog, says it all – and in Cape Town the good life is to be found in the beautiful nature we are surrounded by, hearty food, family and friends and just being thankful that we are fortunate enough to be living in this beautiful city.
