I’m an every day wife and mum of 3 kids aged 23, 20 and 17 living in Perth, Western Australia, and writing about anything and everything that comes to mind, mostly light-hearted and tongue-in-cheek. When I had to decide on a name for this blog it was my husband who came up with the idea: “Searching for Ironman” as our life quite often involves wondering where he’s gone because he doesn’t like to sit still for long and excels at going off on errands sometimes for something I’ve asked for, which is very helpful, and at other times for something completely random that has suddenly become top priority at that very moment and takes him away without any of us knowing where he’s gone. This is whenever he’s not working or training for an endurance running, swimming or triathlon event.
I’ve always loved reading, enjoyed writing and I don’t like to miss a photo opportunity, as my kids would say, though photography is just a hobby that gives me great joy.
I try to see the humour in every day life with my lovely family. Every now and then I might write something in Afrikaans, which is my mother tongue, and apologise in advance to any non-Afrikaans readers. I hope you enjoy reading about our life journey and (quite often silly) escapades!
