Area: ScotlandI am a writer who has fun finding things to do other than write (it's called displacement activities), but unfortunately Kirsty, my wife, has great lateral thought and says that if we get someone to come and help with all these fun things, then I can go and spend my day behind a desk, writing. A bit boring, but I suppose she's right. So how about coming to stay with us for a bit and giving us a hand? We live in a farmhouse right on the River Tay in Perthshire (the wide bit, that is, between Perth and Dundee) and we have dogs, cats, hens, and a few horses kicking around the place. Our four children, bless 'em, are all grown up and have beards and kids of their own (well, the boys do...), but they'd vouch for us being quite laid back people and quite good fun as well. You certainly won't be bored, because we never are! Oh, and Kirsty's some cook, so you won't get hungry either. I have told her though that she's not to 'mother' any of you. Been there, done that...
Area: MichiganMy dad and I share this house, but as I do research abroad, I'm only occasionally there. My dad is a retired chemistry professor - loves motorcycles and chatting about history. I do research in biopsychology and have come and gone a lot over the years traveling and living overseas in places like New Zealand and Germany. We love meeting new people from around the world and learning about their home and experiences!
Area: South West France - DordogneWe're a family of three, we're English and have lived in this beautiful corner of France for 7 years. My husband and I have been working on our house and garden for a few years and it seems a never ending project. We have a 16 year old son, who goes to the local Lycee. We're keen to get many small projects finished this year ... particulary in the garden and an extra pair of hands would be very welcome from someone who knows their way around a veg plot and flower bed. We also would like to finish indoor carpentry so anyone good with wood is also welcome!
