About me hmm - tricky. I'm a Kiwi, living on the South Island who found this site quite by accident one day and have lurked for a couple of months now. I'm a insurance claims supervisor specialising in Motor Vehicle claims - although I also handle other claims as well. My spare time (what's that again) is spent reading, cooking, writing and spending time with my partner, Craig, and our kids James and Bethany. Passions - books, good food, wine and conversation, my friends and family. Pet peeves - not sure I have any at the moment. If I had a month away from work and responsibilities I'd spend it travelling - oh and reading of course ;-).
