Since becoming a meditator and a WORKAWAY I have been feeling pretty euphoric because of the wonderful experiences I have been having. I would recommend this way of life to everyone.
The chorus lyrics of a Robbie Williams sums up how I am feeling at the moment....
I LOVE MY LIFE
I AM POWERFUL, I AM BEAUTIFUL
I AM FREE
I LOVE MY LIFE
I AM WONDERFUL, I AM MAGICAL
I AM ME
I LOVE MY LIFE
I AM A NON SMOKER SO I AM LOOKING FOR A NON SMOKING ENVIRONMENT.
I AM ALLERGIC TO ANIMALS SO A PET FREE ZONE IS PREFERABLE.
I AM HAPPY TO CONSIDER ANY OFFERS FROM HOSTS EVEN IF THE COUNTRY ISN'T ON MY LIST IF THE EXPERIENCE IS APPEALING TO ME. SO GO AHEAD SURPRISE ME!
I am a mature, single lady with no commitments, looking for my next adventure. A reliable, honest, conscientious, caring, enthusiastic individual happy to contribute, using any skills I have to help families or businesses I am staying with.
I meditate daily and enjoy yoga so I am a calm lady with a positive outlook on life, I attend the gym, walk regularly, and enjoy being outdoors, I appreciate the beauty of nature, the countryside and walks on the beach. I enjoy photography, reading, music, and having a coffee whilst socialising with friends.
When I have time I have helped a local Hospice with collections and doing a fun run. I have also contributed to the voluntary library services in my area with book deliveries. For several years at Christmas I have volunteered to help provide a Christmas lunch for people who would otherwise be alone. They were extremely successful and the appreciation received was quite poignant and uplifting.

I am a people person. I communicate well with others no matter what age they are. I am well organised, patient, adaptable and resourceful. I have owned a Hotel in the past so I have gained many attributes which I can use in my volunteering positions. I am a cooperative team player. I have many years experience in hospitality and catering and retail. I have computer skills and experience with administration having owned a business for 12 years.
Before becoming a Workaway I was a PA for a disabled lady. I am considerate, caring, compassionate and understanding and manage to keep my composure in stressful situations. I have very strong maternal instincts having children and grand children, so child care is a desirable option for me. So far the time spent with little ones as a volunteer has been so joyful and emotionally very special. Long may it last!
Over 2.5 years ago I decided to be a little adventurous and try out a live in work away position. Before joining the site the only previous example was a week in a Buddhist center which was very beneficial to me. I felt a great peace and happiness within when I left.
I have welcomed the challenge of temporarily relocating, living life in a completely different way and meeting new people. I am an amiable lady so I have been making new friends a long the way. Ideally I am looking for a longer term position if that suits the host, but I am open to offers on short stays also.
My first Workaway placement was on Lambay Island. What a wonderful, unique experience that was! The beauty of the Island combined with the enormous kindness and friendliness of the people I met there made it an adventure I will treasure and never forget. This was followed by a stay in a Manor house in Oxfordshire which was a real pleasure.
I have just had 5 months in Spain with the most wonderful families you could ever meet. I was blessed to spend time with them and their adorable children. My 2 placements were full of laughter and happiness and many beautiful moments that I was privileged to share, heavenly!!
I then had 9 weeks in York with a family which was hilarious. I then travelled to Italy for the first time. I had 6 weeks in Milan which was fantastic. I joined a mother and daughter so all girls together and as a bonus gained confidence as a single traveller so happy days! I then moved in with a most generous welcoming family in Genoa another wise choice until January 2018.
After having such a successful and joyous two and a half years I look forward with great positivity to seeing what other new experiences come my way. Do please contact me if you feel I meet the criteria you are looking for in your Work-away. I am looking for placements from now really, in Italy as that is where I am now or in France, Spain or somewhere else warm that appeals to me or any offers I may receive in the interim. I look forward to hearing from any potential hosts from now and into the rest of 2019.
Live life with an attitude of gratitude and the universe fills your life with abundance. Give it a try!!
