A bit about me

Colleen Black
I carried a watermelon

I currently live with my husband, Erik and two dogs,Lucy & Hamish, in Ballito.  I own a small domestic & commercial cleaning business in England, I manage a self catering flat in Chaka’s Cove and I am our own part time house keeper and full time procrastinator.

I do not like being busy, at all, unless of course it is with things I choose to be busy with! Clue is in the name – Life Lived SIMPLY!

Gardening, reading, cooking, promoting the zero waste lifestyle, 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, discovering new ways to reduce food waste, sustainable living ideas for our plot at the Vaal ….  I never get bored.  Ever!

I have many things on my To Do list but due to lack of priorities and skill it is slow going … such as sewing and embroidery … my talent does not lie in this area … yet.

Hope you enjoy my blog, it’s a bit of everything but mainly focuses on zero waste. Find me on social media too – links in the top right menu. If you would like to get an email whenever I update my blog, just click follow in the right hand menu.
