From there to here

Di portrait

Hi and Welcome

I am Di McDougall. Life brought me from there to here over the hills and through the valleys and still the road goes on. I love swimming. I’m an enthusiastic cook and gardener. I like movies and the occasional binge watch. The complicated heritage that being South African so often bestows has shaped me. I am a wife, mother and grandmother. These roles thankfully continue to teach me about love.

    I have had the pleasure of having family not only visiting but staying over! I enjoyed the shared meals, the talking that flows from this to that...

    I stepped out on the tarmac and felt this little burst of happiness. That should have surprised me because I really didn’t want to be there.


  • What a joy to talk about one of my very favourite books. It’s a book that is full of meaning for me, changed how I looked at things.
