About me

Occupation Managing Director of Our House
Location Auckland, New Zealand
Introduction Hi I'm Ruth (aka MrsW), Welcome to my blog! I'm a stay at home mummy studying an Accounting and Management Degree via correspondance and I'm a Triathlete! My ever loving and very patient DH (MrW) and I have two gorgeous boys who are 7&8. We have two cats and two fish and hoping to extend our pet family to some chooks sometime soon. MrW is a competitive Road Cyclist and I have morphed into a Triathlete, these sports have become a large part of our lives. We live in a beautiful quiet part of the country in rural Auckland. Back to basics for us, cooking from scratch creating Clean Wholefood meals and living a happy, healthy, simple and frugal lifestyle (as much as we can). So whilst MrW works in fast paced Auckland city, in our little house we are trying everyday to slow down and take time to smell the roses :)
