    Hello Pat 🙂
    I lived a very short while in Clyde st before coming to NZ in 1971, and my eldest brother lives in Hardgate. I tell people I came on the 123 plan, 1 husband, 2 sons, 3 suitcases. They laugh and then realise when I say we only had 80 pounds in our pockets [and there was no container of furniture coming -that’s another story], that is exactly what I meant, starting from scratch.
    After moving around NZ with my husband’s jobs, had another son born in Christchurch the marriage broke up in 1988 and I have been on my own since then. One son is in Auckland, One in Wellington and one in Twizel. I am re-configuring my life now to take in travel back to Scotland [can not for more than 6 months at a time or I lose the pension], and maybe get a little campervan here to travel around to visit my sons and their families here.
    Just have to get a sale now 🙂
    Where are you living now Pat ?
    Cheers
    Mary

    I recently moved to Hawkes Bay from Auckland & am looking to connect with people/groups to help me settle into the area. I am open to new ideas & activities. I have gone out dancing for many years as it is great for meeting people & making friends as well as good exercise. I have also enjoyed going along to country music clubs. I also like my garden, was a member of a herb group & reading & I now have a new puppy to keep me company while I work from home.
