  • Description


    Hi There, I am a young at heart 78 year old. living alone on the Gold Coast of Australia. ...Well not quite alone I have a little furry companion dog called Sylvie

    My interests are gardening, art, wildlife and music.

    I live on a healthy vegetarian diet but I am happy to cook meat for you.

    In June I had open heart surgery and am working to get back to my previous level of fitness, but right now I need a bit of help in the house and garden, just the general day to day things.

    My home is on a bus route , 10 minutes to a busy shopping Mall and half an hour to the famous Surfers Paradise
    My daughter lives nearby and her 3 little ones often drop in for some fun times with Grandma.

    I belong to a bush walking group and although I am not ready to start walking again you might enjoy joining them for some walks in th e beautiful Hinterland rainforests. I can also show you some of our famous beaches, the ones the tourists like for surfing, and the ones the locals like for relaxing.

    I would be available to help you with Englsh language practice. I still have a bit of an English accent although I have lived here 45 years!!
    You would have a bright little bedroom overlooking the garden and share bathroom with me.
