  • Description

    I've been a single mum for a couple decades and now they've all flown the coop, so I'm back in adventure mode!
    My employment background is education & environmental work, currently doing supply teaching.
    I'm practical & creative, happy to have a go at most things. As far as what I can offer, I wouldn't make contact if I thought the tasks required were beyond my capability.
    I like cooking healthy food. Love nature, art, music, friendly people & going down roads I've never been on before.
    I'm hoping to avoid summer in Australia, heading to the UK round the end of the year, for as long as I can manage.
