I am an optimistic person who values family and relationships. Originally from New Zealand, I love to travel and have visited and lived in a few foreign places.
Enjoy reading, and have a keen interest in Antiques, Genealogy/research/history/ other cultures and furthering my knowledge. I like discussion on current events and enjoy visits to Art galleries, house and garden shows, theatre etc. I love holiday celebrations and planning for them, my garden and working in and around the house. Love being outdoors, camping, walking along the beach or in the mountains.
I am comfortable with who I am (always room for improvement though), caring and natural nurturer, intuitive, protective and loyal, spontaneous, responsible and dependable, a good listener, respectful, artistic and creative, intelligent, honest (expect that of you) and the patience of a saint! I persevere to get the job done, enjoy long term friendships, love, laughter……and did I say, low maintenance!
I try not to sweat the small stuff!
