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.
