About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to enjoy my freedom from work, parents, kids, obligations, expectations, conventions and irritations, if you understand what i mean...life like this is excellent

ABOUT ME

whacky, energetic grandmother who loves life and is rather unconventional. now that i have all my time to myself for the first time in my life i want to meet many new people by hosting and travelling to places i haven't seen yet, (like all round australia, canada, alaska, patagonia, the caribbeans), heaven knows how far i will get....can't be slotted into any category as i've never fitted into any box. i'm smart, quick, funny and generous but take no bull or tolerate any -isms. love having guests around.

PHILOSOPHY

tolerance, generosity, sharing, giving and taking graciously, spreading peace and kindness, laughter instead of anger and frustration
