I like to be creative and do knitting, sewing, as well as gardening and travelling. The pension status is a very great experience and moving after many years has been a massive step in our lives, but life was very different in the Vaal Triangle than that we are now experiencing here in Jeffreys Bay. We have much more time for ourselves now so that we can do the outstanding family research regarding my Heath and Van der Merwe families and it is gratifying to have more time to work on it. Furthermore, I started painting and it's wonderful to see how much hidden talent I actually have.
In earlier years when the children were still small and playing tennis, I was the secretary of the Vaal Triangle Tennis Academy; later at the Vaal Triangle Walking Club and for the past few years secretary at the Vaal Triangle branch and NEC of Genealogical Society of South Africa.
