Hi. I am new to this 'world' of same age surfers! I am keen to socialise in any format. I am a wife, mum and nanna. I love to sew, crochet, read and write. I also visit the pool (while I can!) to swim or attend aqua. I love my garden, although not the work that accompanies it-guess I like to gaze and admire more than digging and weeding! I believe in 'Use it, or lose it' so try to be active, despite my age. I love chocolate and wine, frequently please!
