  • Description


    I am a mum of teenage twins. My son has an illness (ME/CFS) and I work part time and so I'm looking for some help at home and with childcare as he is often too unwell to attend school. We live in Yorkshire, have two gorgeous dogs and have access to beautiful countryside and some vibrant cities to explore. I studied languages and would be happy to support someone learning English. As you can see from our photos, we try and get out as much as we can but sometimes the ME wins and we just enjoy lazy days at home with our pets.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live on the edge of Huddersfield where you can explore beautiful countryside, the town centre or easily get to Manchester, Leeds, or the Peak District. We have a large extended family who would be happy to have visitors if you want to get away for a weekend. We have a lovely house and garden and are a very friendly and relaxed family and would love getting the know someone. We would be happy to have someone wanting to improve their English. I speak French and my daughter is learning So we would love the have someone to share language learning with. We love sport and the outdoors and would be happy for the workaway to join any of our activities. On rest days, my son enjoys watching films, cake decorating, exploring online music, darts and table tennis. On better days he loves sport and his favourite thing ever is rollercoasters!

    I am a single Mum with 13 year old twins. My son has a ME/CFS so is often at home either resting or needing to do low energy activities and my daughter is full of energy often wanting to be out and about. We are hoping my son will attend school part time from September but he will be at home for much of the day. He may need some basic support with school work or online learning he is doing at home. We could also do with some help around the home and with walking our two lively dogs. My daughter might also appreciate having someone else around as her brother is often out of action. She loves languages so would love to learn from someone.
