  • Description


    What an Amazing year its been! , An English guy, a French couple, two english roses, Aother industrious English Guy, three Portuguese girls, and a return of previous workaways, our Argentinian guy For a third visit and a home grown country girl from Dubbo For a second Visit. Wonderful connections , a new vege garden, and much more

    Help needed is ongoing, and makes a huge difference, and besides the house seemed empty when not filled with laughter, And shared stories,

    still available for those already in Australia, and future bookings , we can still safely accommodate you, as accommodation is separate from main house, plenty of outside work during the first period of stay, and simply a matter of using commonsense , good hygiene practice , social distancing etiquette can be easily managed As needed, to minimise risk and also willing to help you if your stuck for accommodation so no one is left alone , it’s the Australian way

    I’m an outgoing person, with a sense of humour , positive outlook on life, though a full time carer, we have a wide circle of friends, and interests, I love snorkelling , travelling, and am easy going friendly, compassionate, my husband has dementia and I care for him at home, and yes though confined to bed and wheelchair we still take him out. We live in the moment

    Enjoy Uno , rummyking , scrabble , skip bo Texas Holdem , walk around the lake writing , movies, outings games night that is when I’m not resting from exhaustion ,

    Friends consider me a warm kind hearted person with a sense of humour and a good hugger , cooking is basic but would make sure you won’t starve . :) and value honest conversations

    So whadda ya say? Gidday gidday of course so drop us a line, your welcoming room is awaiting.
