  • Description



    My live changed now. I have to get used to live alone without the big help of my husband. He passed away in the September. But I want to try to take once again helpers.

    I need somebody to ride my horses together with me on the forest tracks,I need somebody to bring firewood in. I live in a big wooden house which is heated by firewood.I have two horses,some hens,a dog and two cats. I live mostly alone, but three children and their kids come visit here sometimes. My nine grandchildren are aged 24-7years.

    I'm from Germany myself, so it would be great if you knew little German .

    I hope you can take care of horses and you know how to ride. You can ride the horses together with me on the forest tracks near by and further away. During the summer months I am used to ride the horses early in the morning.

    I hope you like it to work in the vegetable garden and to stack firewood we need help in the beginning of the summer. You will learn it fast.

It's 5km to the next village and where I go shopping it's 20km. The nearest city is Lappeenranta. It takes 60km there.During the school time you can go by bus in the morning and come back in the afternoon.
