  • Description


    Workaways tend to return to us so sometimes we have last minute places.
    We are looking for someone who enjoys cooking as we quite a few workaways here and family.
    Many of our workaways are last minute as we don't book too far ahead.
    There is always lots to do in the house. Both work and play.
    My son is 10 years old. I am also known as Susanda
    Near sea, beautiful area.
    We always welcome people from all walks of life and have piano, uklele and guitar available for those that like to play. Also table tennis and Home Cinema.
    We can teach you to play canasta if you want and also play Catan. We like Wii and Xbox and creativity is great. Especially music and filming. We like to make shorts and run online magazines.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are in a great area of Scotland but not far from England so you can see the cultural differences between the English and the Scottish. Good links to major cities .
    I am happy to teach singing. We have a piano and guitar on hand you are welcome to use.
