Who’s that Girl? – Liesl Bush aka Farm Girl

Ordinary Women

The Farm Girl was one I met when we moved to Cape-Town.  We were both worked for the same “Company”, soon got chatting and I discovered she also live in the Valley.  Soon we were taking on a walking challenge, which was an epic fail.  The friendship however is stronger then ever.  We are part of the same “book club” and often spend an evening chilling on the couch chatting, while the husbands watch sport and the kids tear the house apart. Love her sense of humour and the fact that she has also not managed to find her filter, says it like it is 🙂  Liesl is also the owner of The Farmers Daughter, so if you live in Cape-Town, pop over to the FB page and see what it is all about.
