Dislikes cucumbers, greed and hate, olives, white wine, snakes, chores and scrabble, idiots in automobiles.

Who is Noni ?

I have had 13 address's in 14 yrs in NZ due to my partner having itchy feet and I long to settle down & live in one place and become part of the community properly.

Complementary medicine e.g. homeopathy, herbs etc. Playing with my children and coming up with new projects for us to do.
