Hi there! My name is Linda and I live in the Gauteng Province of South-Africa. I have two lovely kids, both post teenagers, my son Dimitri and my daughter, Cheri. My husband, Roy, and I have been married for 25 years.
I am a HUGE rugby supporter, first our national team, the SPRINGBOKS and second, my much beloved provincial team, the BLUE BULLS.
I used to work in the private sector which I enjoyed tremendously, but unfortunately due to a chronic illness, I had to stop working altogether.
The same illness also caused me to stop my studies which was Law orientated, mainly Criminal Profiling. This was a dream that was shattered and for many years I struggled to find something else I both enjoyed and could mingle with like-minded people.
In 2012 I took up blogging and that changed my whole world. I love the online activities going on worldwide and especially as I now have a little spot to express myself, as well as share every day stuff going on in our not-always-normal household.
Here at With A Blast, you will find many, many recipes, some my own, others I tried/tested from recipe books and lots which I found from magazines to online sites and adapted to suit our family’s needs and preferences. You will also see some home renovations/changes we make and I share some craft projects too.
Overall, I just want you to enjoy my posts, share something about yourself or just leave a comment and if your e-mail is attached to your comment, I will get back to you with whatever you need to know, or might just like to chat about a recipe or a craft.
