My name is Esther Ritmeester,
I am of Dutch Descent.
I live on a lifestyle block near Katikati in NZ with my husband, a cat, a dog and some chickens. We grow Hydrangeas and Olives.
I am a wife, mum of 3 and Oma to 2 young granddaughters.
I have been a Nurse, a Dairy farmer, a Play center mum and president, a Homeschool parent and the editor of the member’s newsletter for the NZ Council of Homeopaths.
I know how to drive a tractor, tie a half hitch knot, how to tell a male from a female Weta and how to darn a sock.
I am an eternal learner; have done courses varying from cake decorating to Yoga and Te Reo, always a keen researcher of facts and answers.
I love reading and writing, cooking, baking, gardening. I relish traditional handcrafts and love spinning, dyeing and knitting my own hand spuns.
I love nature, plants and critters great and small.
Driving a manual car, eating cooked beetroot and hard rock music are things I definitely don’t like.
I can’t live without Homeopathy!
