What goes on here

Friday, May 17

Happy friday friends, and Hi to any of Megan's readers from Across the Pond, who have popped over!


I thought I may give a little summary about what goes on over here...

 I am Lulu (real name Andrea, I know, how unrelated!). I'm from South Africa, and grew up on my Parents beautiful farm, 20km from a rather rural little town, which most South Africans have never heard of, called Kokstad.


After five years at a boarding school for high school, which I loved, I went to University and studied to be a Physiotherapist.

I then came to London for what was supposed to be a year to work and travel, but which has somehow turned into almost seven.



Four years ago, I met Pete, also a South African here in London.  I still can't believe that I came all the way to London to meet someone from a three hour drive away from my home town. Well in someways I can believe it, there are soo many South Africans living in London.


In January 2012, I was diagnosed with melanoma cancer for the third time, and had a large chunk of tissue removed from my right shoulder, and I am SO fortunate that they got all the cancer out.

I was waiting for the usual lecture on not going in the sun or ever using sun beds, which I certainly DO NOT, when my Doctor asked me if I eat blueberries everyday.  She told me that I really should, and that ultimately they could save my life.  And so I began my quest to a happier and healthier lifestyle, which I share on what I like to call this, Wellness Blog.

And hence the Berry Diaries name too.

In October last year I started my own business, a Physiotherapy practice for Women and Children and
I am fortunate to absolutely love my job.  I am also doing my Yoga teacher training, and tomorrow start on a course on teaching Yoga to children with Special Needs, I can't wait!  The meditation business is proving  to be a little difficult to master though...

In December, Pete and I got married, in the tractor barn on my Parents Farm.


The Barn underwent a pretty impressive transformation as you can see here. 
And you can see more of our Wedding Pictures here.

On this blog, you will find my musings on the subject of happiness, and what makes me happy, answers to some of the physio questions that I'm often asked, and the odd healthy recipe too.

But mostly you will see me sharing my journey as I trying to be healthier and happier, one step at a time.

Two of the most popular posts on my blog are here and here.

Thanks so much for visiting, I would love it if you left a comment to say hi, and I hope that you all have a fabulous weekend!
