  • Description


    I'm a teacher and Sandy runs the household. We live on a couple of acres just out of Opotiki in the sunny Bay of Plenty. We have a large garden, a few fruit trees, and some native trees and a small field where the neighbour grazes sheep. The children have left home and we live with a dog, two cats, and a dozen hens.
