We're a family of 4 living in Maleny, QLD in a traditional "Queenslander" home. We have two little boys, a 2 year old sweetheart and a 3 month old, as well as a 3 year old friendly Shar Pei dog called "George Michael" 🐶.
Sian is currently on maternity leave but usually works as a medical doctor. Cormac works as a project manager in commercial construction. Maximilian, our 2 year old, is in daycare 4 days a week!
