Apart from Science…

Most of my ‘free’ time is currently spent with family, especially my children (ages 2, 4 & 6). However, I do still find a bit of time for:

  • Running – currently training to survive my first half-marathon in nearly a decade;
  • Kindy parents committee – in the process of recruiting new manager & assistant manager;
  • House plans – in the process of planning a major renovation to our 1927 home;
  • Travel – a mix of personal/professional & domestic/international.

There are also a few things, that since the arrival of children, I can no longer fit into my schedule:

  • Music – I have a diploma in performance piano and have performed in a national representative choir, but now find I have to fight my kids for time on the piano;
  • Circus Training – particularly trapeze and tisu (aerials);
  • Fleece & Yarn – I know how to take raw fleece, clean it, card it, spin it and knit it into something useful;
  • Photography – I bought myself a nice camera and learnt a bit about how to use it before heading to Antarctica for PhD work.
