    An opportunity for my next workaway who is happy to help an older person in her home on the computer and cooking and keeping the house clean and tidy from the beginning of April 2023.

    I am looking for a workawayer who speaks English and can stay for a longer period - of at least two weeks - as I prefer this than having lots of different people for short periods as it can be quite unsettling for me.

    I am a retired woman, with a busy social life, who enjoys meeting new people and sharing my home with travelers from across the world.

    I find myself most comfortable with people who are patient with me and organized, and who can help me with my daily tasks. I expect anyone staying with me to respect the rules of my house and not take advantage of my good nature.

    A usual day will normally involve making me a salad for lunch, helping me with my emails and the computer, keeping the house and kitchen especially tidy, helping with laundry, and other odd jobs around the house, and cooking dinner in the evening. I like people to spend time with me in the evening so I can have some company, watching Netflix or Coronation Street, but hope people will do this and not count it towards their "hours".

    I have a lovely garden and would like people with some knowledge of gardening and horticulture who can help me keep it maintained.

    Sometimes, I may invite you to join me on some activities I have planned. My friends are always excited to meet the people I host from around the world too!

    I love to try new food from other countries and I endeavor to eat lots of salads and vegetables but I am open to anything food-wise!

    If you have a love of card games or know how to play Rummikub then you will fit in nicely here!

    My house is in a beautiful area of the North Shore of Auckland, with stunning views of Rangitoto Island and a fantastic cityscape of Auckland, which sparkles at night. I am within walking distance of Castor Bay and Milford beaches.

    There are supermarkets, coffee shops and other local amenities within walking distance. The bus to connect to Auckland CBD is just a couple of minutes' walk from my home.
