|Lived in Taihape Forever! (that’s how cool this place is).|
Didn’t bother with Uni, left that to my sister.
Travelled a little, still so much to see & do.
Spent most of my schooling doing extra curriculum activities other than “actual school” (don’t think I missed much).
|Everything! Except Lulu no one should listen to lulu.|
Favorite thing about working at River Valley: Having my babies with me. Also having all these amazing people to look after my babies for me! -Everyone loves a free babysitter.
Greatest Work Memory:
Getting a job here is a highlight.
|Meeting my babies Daddy is a pretty good one.|
All the Ranga mischief with Miranda …. Too many to write and so many more to come 😊
