Retired couple, gardeners and love to meet people. Peter - Retired from engineering work, then trained to become a registered hypnotherapist but now no longer practice. I am still a workaholic, just can't keep still. I just love pottering about. This is our first go at hosting-(got to recoup some of the expense of the new building!!) Sylvia - a home person, loves her craft hobbies particularly her embroidery and knitting and her gardening. I am very considerate when she is working in the garden, always reminding her to have a rest, (not to overdo things cos she has to prepare dinner later) and make herself a cup of tea (and one for me). We have a married daughter - 2 grandsons- here in the UK, and a married daughter in New Zealand-3 grandsons. We would go to New Zealand more often if it was nearer ?! so we have to make do with an occasional visit which is a highlight for us. Hosting has many benefits for us, not least of all is that it keeps us busy, preparing for the guests , again for the next guests. To some extent hosting makes us feel useful, and make friends along the way.. We hope so anyway.
