    We are looking for workaways to help during any of the months of
    Sept/ Oct/November/December

    We prefer older and mature Workaways if possible but will consider everyone. I prefer short term workaways rather than the same workaway staying for a longer period of time.
    There are always lots of projects in my home to complete.

    We live in South Manchester 20 minutes away from Manchester Airport.

    We have a ten yr old amazing gentle and happy son a beautiful friendly whippet, two lovely cats and a tortoise

    We are a positive, mindful,happy, friendly family.

    I like meditation, happiness, positivity fun and laughter. I also like quiet peaceful times too.

    Due to having had cancer five years ago, chemo has left me with low energy at times because of M.E and Fibromyalgia and I get tired quite quickly so need help with housework including cleaning and to help to get me motivated.

    The house is quite big and I sometimes don’t have the energy to do all of it on my own.
    There is plenty of space in the house, for everyone to live comfortably.

    I don't eat meat, mostly vegetarian, with a little fish sometimes.

    I would like my son to benefit from inviting workaways to stay, so they would have to be confident and friendly around him.

    I would love someone who is level headed, motivated with an ability to get things done see what needs doing without having to be told or prompted all the time would be amazing. Someone with a get up and go positive attitude would be really appreciated.

    My first preference is a mature person , but I will consider everyone that messages me personally. As I am open to all kinds of help.

    I always need a handy person to help mending things around the house, gardening, woodwork plastering. manual work . So please message me if you have those skills too.
    Other skills needed sometimes are :

    Help with housework, general work around the house, and Cooking.

    Painting, DIY, Decorating and carpentry if you have the experience.

    No smokers only as I am allergic to cigarette smoke.

    I look forward to hearing from you with what you can offer.

    My first workaway experience was amazing and I can't wait for more experiences like that.

    I have now had three amazing workaway experiences and loved what each workaway bought into my life.

    Kultureller Austausch und Lernmöglichkeiten

    The workaway traveller will learn a new culture, improve their English and get to see the wonderful tourists sites in Manchester and the North West of England. We are 15 mins away from Manchester airport and the train is two stops from the airport (7 mins)
    The train station is at the end of my road.

    Help with mostly housework and cleaning. The jobs that I never get round to doing as there is the normal housework everyday.

    Cooking would be apprecIated 3 times a week but not essential if you have other skills.

    I could do with maintenance help around the home and garden if you have that skill. I will choose workaway's depending on what I need doing at the time. Carpentry is a skill that I would love as I have a 1965 vintage caravan that needs work doing on it .

    Working 5 hrs over five days or 4 hrs over 6 days I am flexible.

    All times and days all negotiable.

    Non Smokers only. I would prefer a non drinker or someone who drinks alcohol only occasionally.

    Breakfast and lunch is available for your to help yourself to whatever you would like to eat. Evening meal we can eat together as a family.

    I am open minded to all types of workaways and I have lots of different jobs for each one so contact me with what you have to offer and we can discuss.

    Plenty of free time to explore the North of England.
