Name and Where are you from?
My name is Brigitta Nell and I live in the beautiful Northern Suburbs of Durbanville in Cape Town.
Describe your day in the life of Brigitta Nel
I get up and make kids school lunches, pack their bags and get myself and them dressed. I then take them to school, do the housework, washing, shopping etc ... OR as I'm a shift working mom, I might just be up at 3 am, go to work, then come home, fetch the kids, sort out dinner... or if I'm working the night shift, I do all of the above and then go to work from 4 pm till midnight.
