  • Description


    We are a positive, mindful,happy, friendly family.

    We live in South Manchester 20 minutes away from Manchester Airport.

    We have a 12 yr old amazing gentle and happy son, a beautiful friendly whippet, two lovely cats and a tortoise

    My first workaway experience was amazing and I can't wait for more experiences like that.

    I have now had six amazing workaway experiences and loved what each workaway bought into my life.

    We would like to host older and more mature workaways with life experiences. Please email me with as much information as possible and then I can see if we are a match .

    I like meditation, happiness, positivity fun and laughter. I also like quiet peaceful times too.

    The house is quite big and I sometimes don’t have the energy to do all of it on my own.

    Do you think you could make a difference to our family life ? If so please get in touch.

    Projects including decorating, laying flooring, carpentry, general housework and cooking.

    We are looking for short stay mature workaway's to help now until 20th Dec.

    There is plenty of space in the house, for everyone to live comfortably.

    I don't eat meat, mostly vegetarian, with a little fish sometimes.

    I would like my son to benefit from inviting workaways to stay, so they would have to be confident and friendly around him.

    I would love someone who is level headed, motivated with an ability to get things done see what needs doing without having to be told or prompted all the time would be amazing. Someone with a get up and go positive attitude would be really appreciated.

    I always need a handy person to help mending things around the house, gardening, woodwork plastering. manual tasks . So please message me if you have those skills too.
    Other skills needed sometimes are :

    Help with housework, general chores around the house, and cooking skills would be great

    Painting, DIY, Decorating and carpentry if you have the experience.

    No smokers only as I am allergic to cigarette smoke.

    I look forward to hearing from you with what you can offer. I would like a workaway who can share the cooking too

    LGBT friendly.

  • Help


    Help with running a family home and especially some one with DIY skills

    Cooking would be apprecIated sometimes but not essential if you have other skills.

    I could do with maintenance help around the home and garden if you have that skill. I will choose workaway's depending on what I need doing at the time.

    Helping 5 hrs over five days or 4 hrs over 6 days I am flexible.

    All times and days all negotiable.

    Non Smokers only. I would prefer a non drinker or someone who drinks alcohol only occasionally.

    Breakfast and lunch is available for you to help yourself to whatever you would like to eat. Evening meal we can eat together as a family.

    I am open minded to all types of workaways and I have lots of different jobs for each one so contact me with what you have to offer and we can discuss.

    Plenty of free time to explore the North of England.
