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.

    How do you love. How do you say: I love this, I love you, I love this now. Without laying claim.

  • 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.
