A little bit about us:
My son and I live together with our pet budgie in a lovely 3 bedroom home with a small yard. We are friendly and active. When we are at home we spend a lot of time talking and playing. We live a low impact life and are conscious of taking care of our planet and local environment. We often have friends and family to visit and like to go to community events, such as festivals and parks. We are very happy to include you in our social activities and introduce you to our Australian lifestyle.
We love living in Reservoir. We are close to Edwards Lake Park, where there is a sports precinct, a gorgeous lake to walk around (1. 5km around the lake), and lots of picnic spots.
We have a bus stop at the end of our street which goes to the Reservoir train station. In the Reservoir village there are supermarkets, hairdressers, and library. The big department store Northland is a bus ride away.
My son is 10, he loves sports and plays the cello. He plays soccer. He also loves video games.
I have worked as a social worker and have lived in overseas countries for 10 years of my life. I love cooking and gardening. I am not currently working.
