Hi! This little essay is all about me, Jacky Day. I’m not used to talking about myself but I really want you all to get to know us better! So being the owner of Mooshimoo I thought it best to start with myself.
I was born and raised in Empangeni on the KZN North Coast. You know the one close to Richards Bay. After school I began my CFA studies (to become an accountant – really!) which I never completed but worked for 15 years as a bookkeeper. Why I started this I will never know. Working all day crunching numbers was soul destroying for me. I needed to be creative and fun and flexible. So, in 2013 the plunge was finally taken to pack my accounting life away and Mooshimoo was born. My soul sang and still sings today. I have the best job satisfaction that anyone could ever have.
I am wife to an amazing husband, Marc (Mark with a C = Cark). His support of me and my little Mooshimoo has been unconditional and selfless. Boy, did I hit the jackpot when I married this guy!
And then, to top off his amazingness he gave me 2 beautiful children. My son, Kyle, is 11 now and received half colours for academics in 2015. Such a proud Mommy I can tell you. His inventive brain just keeps bubbling with new ideas all the time. And then there is Charli, my daughter. She is 8 now and never ceases to amaze me at how much love her little heart can hold. Her family, friends and all of God’s creatures will agree to this.
So that’s me people – in a nut shell. I hope you enjoy getting to know my team and I.
