My name is Shali. I am Sri Lankan born and now live in Palmerston North, New Zealand – a small city in the central/lower north island. Palmy as we Palmerstonians affectionately call it has been my home since I first settled here as a migrant. ; I cannot tell you just how much I love this little city that is my home. This blog is my creative outlet and I will be writing about interesting people, places, and things that I think are interesting. My hope is that you will find them interesting too.

So welcome to my wee blog wellwornhushpupps.com. I settled on this name as Hush Puppies are a well-known comfort shoe, ideal for walking, working, playing, traveling, etc. and that is what the articles are all about.

So, a little more about me – I am originally from Colombo (Sri Lanka). I’m in my 30’s, a wife and mom, I love to travel whenever possible and I am passionate about doing my bit to help the environment. I LOVE books, I also enjoy good movies, binge-watching TV series (when time permits) and I have also recently started to dabble in Photography.

Thank you for visiting this blog, I really appreciate your support.
