I was educated in England, thank goodness, as spilling and grammar (tee hee) are quite important in this industry. I love to read books on natural health and self-healing, and people’s journeys through cancer and other debilitating illnesses.
I love to garden and grow our food as much as possible, which is a great way to connect to yourself and other power sources. I’m also an enthusiastic cook and love to try new things. Bob and I like to travel when we can and wish Australia was like Europe, where dogs can go anywhere with you – buses, planes, hotels, restaurants, etc.
I have fifteen grandchildren and one great-grandchild. They are a great source of pleasure and entertainment. Family is a huge part of our life at work and at home.
I no longer work in the factory but like to keep my hand in where I can. Part of my job was quality control and I still visit most days to keep an eye on things. I love the fact that the boss has let me semi-retire and I also love that we have great staff and things run just as well without me. I still play an active role as consultant, and bucket-of-ice-water-chucker when ‘he who must be obeyed’ gets a little excited. Popping Bob back down to earth occasionally is my duty!
It’s great that my kids and their kids work for us, so it will always be a family business.
