Hello and welcome to Simple Living With D!
I’m Dimitra, an Australian-Cypriot living on this beautiful sunny island called Cyprus!
My dream has always been to travel the world and see what it has to offer. I never wanted to collect many souvenirs but I did want to collect memories! The past 3 years my husband and I have been on our journey to simplify our lives and this started when we noticed we just have too much stuff in our home and social commitments to manage! We needed to simplify so we started with decluttering our home and lives.
Apart from traveling, I do have other passions which you will soon get to know in depth! I love creating decor for my tiny apartment, listen to music and dancing, reading books, cooking and baking and so much more stuff!
Accounting is another passion of mine and I have my ACCA title after years of hard work and supporting myself through university. I have a full time job in accounting and I love (emphasis on LOVE) organisation and order, although this is not always the way my life is! 😉 Sometimes life happens (insert laugh).
Married to my one true love, although he is supportive of what I do, he will however not be active in my blog since he is a more private person and doesn’t want to be all over the internet. I respect his wishes and I am grateful for his help behind the scenes. I also have one adorable and old Husky dogs which I call my kids Sasha. We also had Wolfy, Sasha’s son but unfortunately he passed away in February 2021. (Wolfy and Sasha).
What I hope to do with my blog is to be able to help you all in any way I can through my experiences and knowledge. i have always had a thing for organising my room, home and have always loved to rearrange my furniture and style my home. I have helped friends and family clear out their clutter and get a more organised space and would love to help others with this too.
A bit about me and my dogs, Sasha and Wolfy!
My relationships with my dogs (Sasha and Wolfy) is not like your typical relationship with all the cuddles and playing catch. I’m more of a not so hand on type of gal! I actually hate it when they slobber all over the floor and when their wet nose touches my skin. It grosses me out, and to think I grew up around all sorts of pets.
To be totally honest, after an incident with a dog chasing me when I was around 8 years old, I was terrified of dogs. To have overcome this fear is great as I now have two wonderful dogs that show me their unconditional love and affection even when I’m more drawn back then they are.
We currently only I have Sasha (female) as Wolfy (male) died in February 2021. Now Sasha was Wolfy’s mother but more about that later on.
