I am here for many reasons. I enjoy being part of this diary community, making new friends and strengthening the longer lasting ones.
My journey to date has been full of challenges, good times and not so good times. Lately I am aware that my journey has become more spiritually focussed.
I was married once, from 1970 to 1986. I have since been in a few short term relationships mainly of about 2 years duration.
I have worked as an accountant, credit controller, community worker and taxi driver. I am now RETIRED!! But I havn't excluded going back to work...
I live on Waiheke Island, New Zealand.
I have driven taxis on Waiheke Island. The main taxis I have driven since 1999 when I obtained my passenger endorsement on my licence are number 16 (Toyota Corona station wagon, 4 seats), number 15 (Toyota Hi-Ace van, 10 seats), number 24 (Toyota Hi-Ace van, 10 seats), and number 09 (Holden V6 station wagon, 4 seats). And in 2011, the 5 cabs owned by Waiheke Executive Taxis.
I have one son Sez (formerly Seru) and twin granddaughters Layzell and Laiana.
