    HI I am Nancy a single mum of three ( two at home - (16) (14) (one away at university 19) and I have 2 lodgers.

    My mum died unexpectedly and I now have a 3 bedroomed house with a large garden and an acre of land to look after ( not currently accessible) The house is in the process of being completely reorganised , redecorated and renovated - So its a bit of a mess ( your sleeping space is out of house and okay .The garden is also being slowly changed. I have two outdoor spaces that I am also fixing up.

    The projects include fixing up the remaining 2 outdoor spaces - one sheds - and a summerhouse ( in a treehouse) - repairing and fitting out the tree house. Taming the garden . Finishing downstairs bathroom. At the moment I am still concentrating on the outside while the weather is good.

    My interests include Yoga, singing - going to the gym/sauna .. dancing and playing games - Though these days I don't have time- so support around person fitness would be great . I also love to have a game of pool, play card games , board games and I especially like backgammon and poker,

    Food here is by and large fresh and free range.. We arent vegetarian as we eat a little meat and fish. Im happy to accommodate a vegetarian though.. There is a great wholefood shop In town where we can get organic fruit and veg box that has great supplies for both vegetarian and vegan foods. Also my daughter is Gluten free ( well ish) so we use alot of wheat alternatives and as I don't really eat cows products we have dairy alternatives in often as well.

    Also we do have cats.. just in case you are allergic - the sleeping space im offering is cat free.

    non tobacco smokers. One of the lodgers does smoke but not inside the house or often.

    Its very basic here as we are in process of sorting clearing ,cleaning, fixing, decorating etc

    Its difficult to do stuff on your own - I need someone generally Handy , positive and helpful.

    Knighton is a small town in Radnorshire - its very beautiful and there is much to explore It is on the border of Wales, Herefordshire and Shropshire.

    You would be as one of the family should you come. I just need a extra pair of hands and someone who can help me see what is possible here and make it happen.

    If you can speak Spanish that would be great as I wish to learn it.

    I can afford to feed one extra, any more and some contribution towards food would be necessary.

    Example Projects -

    Outside
    Paving , paths, Painting outside shed and re- felting - painting external windows - repairing and designing treehouse refurbishment , gardening

    Inside
    Decorating bathroom, dining room and Hall/ Stripping the stairs - general sorting , listing on ebay

    Childcare - Cooking - Cleaning - General household maintenance

    Knighton is on the Welsh /Shropshire Border and Herefordshire is only 1 mile up the rd- like many borders it is an interesting area - old hill forts- ruins, castles and interesting Walks - Ludlow is just 15 min away and has a lovely castle- and is famous for its food and beer festivals + lots of great restaurants. The Wye Valley and the Brecon Beacons are also within driving distance as is the coast. Offas Dyke is just behind my land if you like to walk. You can learn about history, local food and beer, the arts, music and much more all are in abundance around these parts if you are willing to explore the area.

    A willing all round helper is all - any experience of renovating or decorating , gardening and general DIY skills would be great- but a willing helpful attitude is all I really need. If you have any building trade skills then thats a bonus. An extra helpful pair of hands is much needed. If you like to cook then we are always interested in trying new recipes -
    As I have kids and pets you need to like being around both. AS I said in main listing we are in process of clearing, cleaning, sorting, rearranging, fixing, redecorating, housework , childcare I need help with all.
    I list on ebay - so experience of this would be very helpful
    Help with cooking, cleaning and washing - freeing me up to increase my listings on ebay and so work more and so generate more resourses to invest in projects that need doing in the house and in the outside spaces.
