Hi I was born in 1941 and have lived in the northernmost city of New Zealand all my life.Its a beautifull place to live and no preditors .I am close to the beaches and love to swim there in Summertime.. I was married for 47yrs  until my husband died  two and a half years ago. Penpalling has been a life long hobby and now with computers  its epals.. Its great to learn about other countries and to talk to people world wide via Chat.. I try to be considerate and polite to all i meet .I have had some epals come and stay with me as well as Penpals and its been such fun..I have two Daughters and Four grandaughters, my family are very important to me ...One daughter lives in Australia and i see her and my two Aussie grandaughters  every couple of years..My eldest daughter lives 3 kms away and I see them often...they farm sheep and its a big task at lambing time and shearing as well.... My hobbies are making Teddybears and i have sold them worldwide ..I havent made any recently but plan to get busy again with my creative side..I love to read  and  I always enjoy a good book..I write poetry and short stories .. only had a few published in magazines only .. The Big novel is yet to come..lol ........ I enjoy going out to meet friends for coffee and play Petanque.... I still work one morning a week and it keeps my brain busy ...so thats  about all there is to say about myself  i hope to see you all in Chat ...Simmone ...(Beverley is my real name
