  • Description


    I live in an old stone cottage, built in 1706 and has lots of little rooms. I have a large garden which is mainly grass as easy to maintain - but have big patio and lots of nice plantpots. I live in a small hamlet but next village - ancaster, a roman village - is only 1 mile away. I live 10miles from Grantham
    I'm a leader for Brownies [girlguiding] and Beaver leader [scouting] and have joined the local Rotary club - so students can come and join in the fun :)
    I am a Host family and often have international students and families to stay from around the world. I am 51yrs old and a retired nurse - my husband is a plumber
    I would like help around the garden and help declutter my home and help me be ruthless in getting rid of things!!!!
    I have 3 grown up children who have all moved out and have 3 lovely granddaughters aged , 19mths, 21/2 and 4 1/2yrs old called Marley, Kara and Yasmin. My mother is spanish and my father was hungarian - so used to international students around. I love travelling and visiting friends around the world

    I have retired early due to ill health so just need some help with decluttering, general housework and some basic gardening. I collect for the homeless and womens refuge so house is always full ! [keeps me busy] I have 3 young granddaughters and often take them swimming or to local groups - students can help me take them swimming. Students can have full use of the kitchen so can cook up delightful meals! I have plenty of room
