My partner is fully retired (from the LAPD) and I am semi-retired (events and meeting manager) here in sunny Long Beach, California, home of the Queen Mary. We love traveling in various forms from adventurous eco-tours to pampered cruising.
It is our desire to meet others all over the world with a particular eye on Ireland where we plan to visit in the fall. If we could find a home swapping opportunity, that would be a consideration.
I am a curious and adventurous person who has worked in education for much of my life. I have many skills to share especially in business management marketing and communications. I am a good cook and Baker. I love to draw and paint and always have my camera with me. I love to garden and with all the lovely flowers I make arrangements for my family and friends. I enjoy sports swimming being my favourite and walking next. I do Pilates to stay supple. To summarise I would say I am a good all rounder.
I am a mother of two, greyhound owner and art graduate looking for extra pennies.
During my free time I enjoy visiting galleries, museums and going for walks out with the city.
I enjoy burlesque lessons to make myself feel great, am currently enjoying intermittent fasting (allowing for cake!) and follow a gluten and dairy free diet. I also cater to a child with complex allergies and so can help with anyone trying to adjust to a new diagnosis or looking for family meal ideas.
If you'd like a kind and experienced person to help your kids with reading, crafts or babysitting or even to, clean, pet sit, board or walk your dog then please let me know and we'll discuss your needs!
I charge Â£9 per hour for most services.
