We (53) 've been having guests from all over the world since my daughter (18) was a baby and just love the cultural exchange. And as our cosy house (built in 1850) and big garden (1000 m²) always has lots of projects and work to offer, we'd like to share our daily life with you. We are vegetarians, animal lovers, non smokers, prefer organic food, have a dog, a cat and some chicken, a wooden sauna and a little swimming pond in the garden ... and all comforts a modern house offers, such as wifi and floor heating... I'm working home office mainly as a writer (childrens books and novels) and animal communicator, sometimes we have seminars here or evening sessions in shamanic drum journeys, teaching animal communication or related stuff. I love my work and the house and garden, but it seems I just work too much - or days are too short? so I'm thankful for a little help - be it inside or outside, always something to do for one who loves decorating, gardening, building, cooking, cleaning ... all skills welcome at all seasons. :-)
Our village is in the middle of beautiful Celle and the city of Hannover, so there's plenty to see and if you prefer the countryside - just step outside the village and you'll have fields and forests...

Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
You're warmly welcome in our family, though due to covid19 "being around" we need to keep bit of a distance unfortunately. Otherwise we'd love to spend some free time together, teaching you German, watching movies, playing cards or other games. These are just offers, no "have to's". We absolutely respect if you prefer being on your own.
We can definitely recommend if you use your time around getting to know our beautiful surrounding. It's not far to Hannover, Celle, Hamburg, Lüneburg, even sea and mountains are reachable within 1- 3 hrs drive...
I'm thankful for any kind of daily routine help, as I have pretty much writing to do at my pc and that claims most of my time... so I'm pretty much thankful for someone to maybe even coach me a little through it, litterally reminding me of eating and drinking and taking breaks and having my back with the daily routines (household chores, pet care, cooking, shopping, making me not skipping my sportsclass ;-) ...)
Fun and skills in a "shed-and-garden-project"? Any experience in carpenting and/or building?
Our former horsestable and barn need some renovating and redecoration, there's a little concrete wall to be done at the pond, always som bushes or trees to cut, grass to mow, flowers or vegetables to be planted ... I'd love the wall-joints in the house outside to be newly grouted but if you feel happy with dusting, cooking or hoovering and go for long and playful walks with our dog or helping my daughter with her studies/homework - (Spanish, English, maths, physics ...) you're always welcome just the same ...
