Hi, I'm a Registered Nurse & have 17yo daughter, 12yo son & playful cat. Enjoy playing tennis, gym, walking, my work, gardening, cooking lots of different cuisines , reading biographies, music- many genres particularly jazz & baroque classical and reminiscing my youth with 70's and 80's music. Period movies & TV serials to escape & unwind.
My daughter has been learning the cello for 5 years, enjoys learning japanese, cooking, reading, music, youth group, cycling and is studious and helpful. My son enjoys basketball & futsal (indoor soccer), swimming in summer, You tube, playing the trumpet and piano. He has an insatiable appetite and rides his bike to school.
We love meeting new people from different countries and enjoy hearing about their lives. l only wish l could remember more words in other languages from our bilingual guests.
I would like to travel more myself so enjoy hearing about your travel experiences.
In November 2015 we went to Europe for 1 month and attended the Airbnb Open in Paris. It was my first time in Rome & l loved all the history, art & architecture there. The trip consisted of 4 countries, 4 languages, 4 weeks & 4 Airbnb's for the 3 of us.
I've also been to UK, France (1998), USA , Singapore, Thailand, Mexico (~1996), Port Douglas in far north Queensland & Albury in New South Wales, in 2014. Have enjoyed many summer holidays in Point Lonsdale & Port Fairy & frequently visit Horsham my hometown.
Most of the time we have a busy life with school, work and other activities. We have dinner most nights between. 6pm-7pm and enjoy dining with our guests and us all sitting down together finding out about the events of the day.
As a shift worker l work about 25 hours per week, the days l work change from week to week and l work on the week ends sometimes.
I've experienced joy in my life but also sadness and betrayal.
The Family Principles that underpin my decisions and values l wish to be my legacy and teach my children,
l remember from the acronym CHILD:
Love & Life long learning
