A bit about me

Colleen & ErikI currently live with my husband, Erik and two dogs, Lucy & Hamish, in Zambia.  My “day job” is a small domestic & commercial cleaning business in England, which I started back in 2010.

We moved to a farm on the edge of Mazabuka in April 2018, for my husbands job.  So we are currently Zambian Expats for the foreseeable future!

Gardening, reading, cooking,  zero waste lifestyle, crocheting, listening to The Archers (having lived in England for 10 years – obsessed with all things British!), discovering and learning more about my relationship with God, birdwatching ….  I never get bored.  Ever! Only boring people get bored. Fact.

Find me on social media too – links in the top right menu; I tend to Instagram/Facebook more than I blog!
