From there to here
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 am not who I was 20 years ago and to my eternal gratitude I am not who I was 40 years ago.

I became an enthusiastic cook during my years on that small island off the coast of Nigeria and it was because I found myself up a creek without a paddle.

Happiness is always there. You just have to choose to see it.

I have gardened for most of my life by now. For me I first woke up to the possible magic of a garden when I met my husband’s grandmother...

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.
