About me: I used to own a chicken called Ruby, hence my name. I'm married with 5 children. 3 are mine, 2 my husbands.
We moved to SA 2011 for my hubbies job taking the 2 youngest boys with us now aged 13 & 17.
My blog is about raising teens in a foreign country and the daily struggles we face adjusting to our new lives.
I'm an ex teacher with a background in special needs and autism and was a child welfare officer with The FA. I'm now an enforced SAHM trying to reinvent myself.
