Okay -- it is quite interesting to have to talk about one"s self -- and so hard to be humble::)) I was born in Australia. I am one of 9 kids -- actually right in the middle which makes me the most interesting and cool as well as the one who has "it all together"::)) - or at least I think so! Now that I am retired, I love to cook. No more do I get home around 8.30 at night and think -- Oh hell, I have to cook dinner. I belong to the most amazing family. My Mum -- who passed away in July 2008 at the ripe old age of 90 always used to say -- "keep the family together" -- and we do. It is so easy to pick up the phone and tell my siblings I love them. I am lucky that a lot of my friends are great cooks, so we often swap recipes. I am exceedingly jealous of those who are 'natural' cooks and don't need a recipe. I am the opposite. Besides cooking, I like the theatre, music, gardening, trying to paint -- another thing that doesn't come naturally -- and meeting people. My DH was born in America and together we have two toy poodles -- Elliott & Connery -- a cat named NUC (passed away March 2009) -- four chickens and a few koy fish. DH is GRADUALLY taking an interest in my vegetable garden - one can only live in hope::))
