You could learn about business, websites and music.
My folks are old and getting tired of looking
after everything and me having foot problems doesn't help.
We have wild possums we feed - you can even pat one of them... I do. Cockatoos, Kookaburras and Rainbow Lorikeets.
I like to be economical with when I go out driving sometime so if we can coordinate when I go I can drop you off at a train if you want to go into the city.
My folks usually go out once a day or every other day to the shops so they can drop you at the train station too.
Or you can walk or catch buses/trains/ or Ubers around.
National parks nearby, beaches, great cafes.
There is also a beautiful, huge shopping mall nearby with lots of great places to eat and a great movie theatres. ($22 for a ticket though!)
My own bedroom also needs painting.
Graphic designers and Marketing help needed.
Jobs for others:
Gardening- tidying up, planting, pool cleaning, handy man type stuff, sweeping.
vacuuming, dusting, tidying, cleaning, decluttering, sweeping, mopping, window cleaning, help with preparing meals and cleaning up after.
Currently we need help with cooking every night as my father who is the main chef hurt his shoulder. If you like to eat well and help cook or cook a meal yourself, of course we provide the food. Tony needs a break, Pollie sometimes cooks but they are both old and tired of doing chores. I don't cook because of my feet.
1 dog/2 Cats - need to be feed, bowls need to be cleaned
to have clean water every day and cuddled.
We do it but you could help!
4 bunnies... ... clean water every day.
We give them lots of things to eat and they are free range.
All your food will be provided...My father loves to cook, I don't as I have chronic pain in my feet so try to stay off them as much as I can- I also get tired very easily and can't do much.. I need to have naps and I need a lot of help.
Occasionally you might need to cook for yourself but I doubt it
there is plenty of food in the cupboards and fridge
and I have some prepackaged organic things in.
All shampoos, laundry soap and soaps are organic which is provided in your private shower room- my mother is the opposite though and buys crappy commercial brands that use palm oil ( which if you don't know is destroying the habitat of wild animals like orangutans and elephants) even though I ask her not to because they are also often not cruelty free. (tested on animals)
I've done workaway before and know how important it is to be able to see the area and have time off...because you are on holiday but also to do the things to keep the household happy... communication is key.. if you want to sleep in or have a nap... let us know... we can work around what works for your lifestyle.
Workaway is better if its not like a job... I think it is better if it is flexible and people get enough rest but also do enough work to help out so we all feel happy.
I look forward to meeting you!
I love playing music with people and we have nice dinners in our beautiful lounge room... one couple made a different cocktail every night.
English, Pollie speaks Spanish
We have a granny flat
with your own single bed that has another single underneath which becomes a double
tv, dvd player, wii,

There is a big park nearby… you can walk down to the water.
Cronulla beach is about 5 minutes away… I can drive you there if I am going or we want to do something together…. nice cafes, cinema, shopping and a beautiful beach.. massive. Big shopping mall in Miranda that is really nice too with great restaurants.
