I am outgoing with a good sense of humour. Retired and loving the independence. I enjoy doing voluntary work, reading, cooking, gardening, photography and the arts. I also love going four wheel driving in the bush tracks with my husband.
We enjoy travelling and plan to do many more trips in the future. A second trip to New Zealand to tour the south Island is priority.
My life motto is to seize the day and enjoy every moment.
