  • Description


    I have hosted many workdays over the last few years and I really value the exchange. I would like someone to come and spend time with me and my 3 children and share daily life for a few months in a fun, happy, dynamic environment.

    I teach English, sell English books for children and have an upcycling business turning vintage objects into lamps.

    I like company and sharing daily tasks, cooking, cleaning, gardening, organizing, painting … whatever needs doing.

    I have 3 children - 3 boys who are 10, 12 and 17 who are friendly, easy going and love welcoming new family members into our home! They spend a week with me then a week with their father.

    Freddie is our dog who loves walks and cuddles and would love to meet you too. And, then there are 5 chickens that lay eggs and eat all the kitchen scraps and need attention too!

    What can you expect?

    A warm welcome, nice accommodation, fun, great food, flexibility. Help with your English, a nice base on your travel journey with support and encouragement on wherever you are heading .... I love Workaway!

    What do I need?

    Positive energy, smiles, a willingness to be flexible - help with running a family, administration for English classes, gardening, dog sitting, cooking .... someone to share and enjoy each others company whilst also having space.

    Brittany is beautiful, there is lots to do - surfing, kayaking, walking, cycling....

    Look forward to hearing from you.
