Photo: OLIVIA HEMUS Alter ego: Robyn Malcolm as her popular character Cheryl West. Photo: SOUTH PACIFIC PICTURES By NICOLA MURPHY Outrageous Fortune act- ress Robyn Malcolm felt like she was coming home when she moved to west Auckland a year ago. But raising two chil- dren and working mostly in central Auckland has meant she's made the decision to move closer to the city. She has sold her Titi- rangi home and moves out this weekend. I've had a wonderful time there and I'm very sad to be leaving.'' She says it's been a great community to be part of and she got on well with her neigh- bours. The kids would run back and forth between the houses. Or they'd disappear for half an hour and they'd be climbing a tree somewhere.'' Ms Malcolm initially planned to move into the city last year but visited Titirangi and fell in love with it. We loved going up the pipeline track, having the beaches so close.'' She also enjoyed com- ing home to the trees and tranquility after a stressful day of work. Her children Charlie, 7, and Pete, 6, thrived at Titirangi Primary too. One of the things she will miss most is the Siren Cafe, where she stopped by for a coffee every morning. Cafe duty manager Elise Ure says staff got to know Ms Malcolm well. It was cool being able to spot her coming through the window and start making her coffee before she arrived. She was very sweet and we'll miss her.'' Ms Malcolm received a positive reaction when she joined the com- munity and thinks it was because people already knew her through Out- rageous Fortune. People just went: Well you belong here of course.' In that sense it was glorious. I slotted right in.'' She says in hindsight she probably should have moved straight into the city but doesn't regret the year she spent in the west. For the next 10 years it needs to be about work and the kids so it's a practical decision.'' But the self-confessed hippy doesn't rule out moving back to west Auckland in a few years' time.
