I was born in Auckland New Zealand. My parents travelled back and forth from Sydney to Auckland in my formative years. My mum was born in England and is of Spanish and French-Canadian decent. My father was of Polish Samoan-Scottish decent and born in Tonga. As a result I’ve had a rich multi-cultural upbringing. I was reared on typical English meals like sausages and mash, as well as enjoying the amazing tastes of the pacific. As a child I enjoyed meals like raw fish (cooked in coconut and lemon juice), Sapa sui (vermicelli noodles with beef and ginger) and pan-fried flounder. My parents history is an extremely interesting story and I hope to write a novel one day of their journey to New Zealand and their immigration to Australia.

One of my mantras: When you don't know what to do, do what you love. Have an amazing day doing what you love! Penina xoxox

Here's a super easy dinner, which featured on Wife Swap. I don't usually freeze this dinner, even though it is freezable. This dinner also creates leftovers for lunch the next day. Add crunchy shredded lettuce to turn those leftovers into a healthy salad. My kids love Sapa Sui (Chop Suey) as I also did. My Uncle Moe made the best chop suey!
We had an amazing time in Ballarat at Sovereign Hill after a week in the Grampians. So much fun! We embarked on yet another memory making girls trip. We read poetry. Laughed and told stories in the car. Got lost. Went swimming. What an amazing memory making trip for my gorgeous Coco and I. It was great to take Coco down a gold mine - since Richard and I did mining in Kalgoorlie. I showed Coco what her dad did for many years. #memories #goldmine #gold #mining #gold #Ballarat #goldtour #Kambalda #Kalgoorlie #thepetersens #peninapetersen #thepetersenfamily #ballaratgoldtour #holiday #tourist #happiness #melbourne #familyfun
Many of us are healing ❤️‍🩹. We all, including me, need to stop occasionally to remember we are only human. We may not get everything done in a day. We may not achieve every goal. Just remember you are awesome. Take a breath. Slow down. Look after yourself. We are all healing. #healing #happiness #motivation #inspiration #breathe #staypositive #calm #believe #neverforget #health #mentalhealth
Stopped at the Big Koala on the way to Horsham for a souvenir! Coco bought a Rose Quartz bracelet and I got a cute new big Koala keyring. If you are ever heading this way be sure to stop and support this super cute small business. Enjoy your experience inside the belly of a Koala! #koala #thebigkoala #Horsham #Grampians #ngsc #NorthernGrampians #travel #visitvictoria #travelvictoria #schoolholidays #Australia #travelAustralia #thepetersens #petersenfamily

Here's a great hack if you love second hand shopping. Take the challenge!
If you have a lot of transactions but you are super busy and don't have time to go through each one, this is the fastest way to stop the madness until you get time to sit down and go through them. You will likely receive an email about the decline. You can catch each one and deal with them as they come through. I hope this helps you find some extra cash fast. Subscriptions have a way of creeping up on all of us!
I use this hack every time I shop using Google Shopping. I start with the lowest price I would be prepared to pay for something and then move up from there depending on what I find. It's a surefire way to save thousands of dollars every year.
