    Description

    We are a family of four, with Simon 9 years old and little daughter Save who is 2.5 year. Per Olav, the husband in the house, have a traveling job and are away from home several weeks at a time. Me, Tove Mette is keeping the home base with our charming children. I look fo helping hand with the children and housework in the house

    Simon is a schoolchild, and very busy with friends, Pokemon's and other typical boy activity. It would be nice for him to learn more English, and maybe some help with English homework :) He enjoy people who like to listen to all his stories, Pokemon as example. Save is the little sister. She enjoy to being outdoor, drawing, dress up, and everything the big brother do:)

    Because I am home alone with the children in long periods, need I help to cook, housecleaning, and all other work in a ordinary family situation. The most important with you who wright to me are that you enjoy kids,care about kids, and know how you play with them ;)

    My interests is nature, mountain hiking, skiing, downhill-skiing, traveling, draw, paint the house, food and cook, and company with friends. I haven't the possibility to do all this things as much I want to, but with a workaawayer who enjoy the same things it will be lot easier for me.

    We live in Tromsø. The city is known as Northern Paris. It's because of much life in the city, during day and night time. Tromsø has a lot of cafes, restaurant, shops and cultural experience. The nature her is stunning. Mountain everywhere, Northern Lights (Aurora borealis), Polar light, and you can go to whale-trip. You can taste much of local food such as, reindeer meet, fish, king crab, scrimps and so on, if you want to come and live with us.

    I have a workawayer who come here in february. For this time I don't now exactly when we next volunteering, but you get the information here. So for now, I don't answer e-mail every week before I know next date a volunteering can come.
