Hi, we are Rolls & Lizzy.
We live in a large house on the hill in a beautiful part of town close to walking tracks, the beach and the harbour.
Although still broken after the earthquakes, our house is clean and tidy and cosy.
We are busy professionals and would appreciate a general helping hand around the house and garden.
We have a vegetable plot needing TLC, a large garden needing upkeep. and we are always refurbishing pieces of furniture.
We have 2 MaineCoons who like a play and cuddle.
Honesty, integrity, respect, and laughter are important values to us.
We are thinking people, and enjoy philosophical and spiritual dialogues,
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We are both European from origin, both well educated, in our 50's, have open minds, and have lived through the earthquakes. Interesting dinner-table-talk guaranteed.
I am a Data Scientist and Lizzy a Forensic Therapist.
Our garden is well established and grows and grows and grows. We need help maintaining it and the vegetable garden.

We work from home. This is both a blessing as well as a challenge. The challenge is to stay focused and not be distracted from work. We welcome a good connection with our WorkAwayers. eg a daily coffee together or sharing dinner together. We also value our privacy in the evening.
