Ki Ora. I'm a single woman in her 50's and I have a lovely home and large garden in a quiet Suburb on the outskirts of Central Auckland. I care for my elderly father who now shares my home, along with a chicken and a recent addition to the household - Pop-eye the (rather energetic) kitten.
We enjoy meeting people from around the world and hearing of far off places. I was hosting Bnb until 9 months ago and met some great people through that. I have traveled extensively in the past in New Zealand, Europe, Australia and Thailand.
Dad has some memory problems and is unsteady on his feet but still enjoys reading the paper and regular trips out. I have built several raised vegetable gardens so he can help in the garden when he has the energy.
