  • Description

    Description

    My son is 11 years old. I am also known as Susanda.
    Near sea, beautiful area. We have a friendly cat.

    Currently looking for help in the home, great for someone mature who has experience of large buildings.

    Workaways tend to return to us so sometimes we have last minute places.

    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 help and play.

    We always welcome people from all walks of life and have piano, ukulele 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. Especially music and filming. We run online magazines and are moving into short films.

    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.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We love to play cards and games. Cinema, table tennis. Musical activities. Gardening for those that love it. Cat to pamper. Normally our weather is pretty good, we are in the gulf stream. 40 miles from England in SW Scotland.
    We are happy for people to go off for the weekends and can drop at transport for local trips.
    We are not near shops so catering for gluten free or special diets is difficult. We have a mixture of people in the house, meat, vegetarian and vegan.

    We have fast connection. We are happy for people to work on their own projects but have had bad experiences of this with workaway of people just working on their own projects (for 5 weeks!) and not doing much for us. But provided times are established it would be fine.
