Hi my name's Diana. I live in the Charente with my 2 children and 3 dogs. Our home is in the small medieval town of Confolens (less than 3000 habitants). I am 51. Joseph my son is 18 and Andrew is 11.
My two boys are in schooling, and I look after the home. I have recently taken up jogging. I love singing and reading and playing table tennis (we have a table on the ground floor - very useful for rainy days). We try to eat healthy, fresh fruit, vegetables and meat and fish. Where possible we eat organic veggies, which is why we try to grow some of our own vegetables. We also preserve some of our vegetables by canning.
We live in a large house, part of which is rented out to students etc... We have a large wild garden area and vegetable garden, some flower borders and a lawn (which is all rather overgrown) and a separate garden along a nearby river (also overgrown),which has many apple, pear and fruit trees and grape vines, which we use for days out and barbeques, fishing, and sometimes for vegetables too.
I would like to get my gardens and vegetable gardens working better.
Help in the house
The french way of life. French food and culture.
I'm looking to find someone to help with my garden, especially with the vegetable garden. There may be the possibility of general maintenance or cleaning help, we'll see for time.
Help with housework would be fabulous too.
