  • Description


    We're a family of four, plus Barry the dog. We're a journalist and a teacher, so very busy with jobs, school etc and would love some extra hands on deck.

    Jobs include: painting, gardening and maybe the odd dog walk.

    We are pretty laid back and like the odd glass of wine and good conversation. We lived in Colombia for a few years so if you speak Spanish that's a bonus as we would love to practice with you. We are happy to help with your English.
