I am what is called a ‘trailing spouse’! Originally from South Africa, I spent my 30s/40s/50s in London, and am now spending my 60s in Beijing where I have been living for the past four years
Married, two adult kids, one son-in-law, doting grandmother , keen cook, ex-Magistrate, voracious reader, cruciverbalist, love gardening, cooking, socializing, a dog-owner (my Border Terrier is spending quality time in Scotland whilst I am in China), love travelling with my husband, I pour a mean Gin & Tonic. That’s me in a nutshell.
Learning to speak Mandarin whilst I am in Beijing (and improving daily) I am really getting to know this fascinating city.
