about colin & deborah

Colin was originally from London, (and is allowed to stay as long as he behaves). I, Deborah, although born in Te Aroha moved to Auckland as a young child.  We met in Auckland after Colin transferred to NZ to work in 1975.

We have three adult children and three lovely grandchildren at the last count.

As retirement approached we decided to get out of the city and do something completely different, combining our love of entertaining, cooking and meeting people with a more relaxed lifestyle. So, with our Border Collie Geordie, we packed our things and headed up to Sandspit. We have since added to our team with 6 Heritage Chickens who supply us not only with lovely fresh eggs but also much amusement. We didn't know chickens had such personalities. Geordie is still wondering why they are free range and he isn't!
