I have a small cottage in Petone, old but comfortable, with a tiny garden. Petone is a pretty seaside town quite close to Wellington city. It has lots of cafes, a movie theatre, library, and two supermarkets as well as many little shops. My house is quite close to the river and the sea, about 10 minutes walk. I also live close to public transport - both train and bus. It takes 15 minutes by train to get to Wellington and 30 minutes by bus. During the day the buses and trains go every 30 minutes.
I am vegetarian. I like to read, listen to music, go for walks in the outdoors, go to concerts and movies and visit with friends. I don't have TV but do have wi-fi.
I decided to join HelpX as I enjoy meeting people from other places and I would like some help with some house cleaning, looking after my little garden and sometimes looking after cats or kittens. There is a cat here and and often guest cats or kittens as I foster for a local shelter. It would also be nice to share someone else's cooking and to learn new vegetarian recipes. I am in my 50's and work at the university as a tutor. I enjoy playing music (bass guitar) and sometimes friends visit to play music too. You will have your own bedroom, with a double bed. All other facilities are shared. At the moment I am very busy with my university job so would welcome people who can help by doing some cleaning (including some cleaning chores for kittens) for an hour or two a day when i am away at work and help cook a vegetarian meal when i get home, most nights. Maybe some painting or gardening if the weather is fine. I would like help for about two to three hours a day all together. The rest of the day is free for you to explore around Petone and Wellington. I provide breakfast and dinner but ask you that you look after your own lunch. There are many places to eat in Petone or you can buy something at the supermarket to cook here but no meat please. Contact me if you think you would like to stay in a small quiet place that is not too far from the city, close to the river and the sea, with vegetarian meals and a cat. Non smokers only please.
