  • Description

    Description

    My son is 10 years old. I am also known as Susanda
    Near sea, beautiful area.

    Workaways tend to return to us so sometimes we have last minute places.
    We would welcome someone to help with cleaning, house keeping - this is our main need at present.
    also some gardening and lifting, general tasks, DIY sometimes, basically lots of stuff. Particularly interested in someone who could help us with some roof work who is knowledgeable about it.
    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, 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.

    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. Daffodils are already blooming.
    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 is difficult.
