Helping us is all about loving dogs & doing a few things around the house.
British mother/son who have lived long-term in Asia/Singapore, now on a new adventure in Sydney!
Ben is nearly 15, & we have been Homeschooling/unschooling he was 7 - he loves interesting conversations about history, philosophy, geography & psychology. He manages this himself now. He plays a lot of cricket, & knows his way around a skatepark.
3 dogs, all rescues need daily trips to the nearby dog park.
No project, just family life... it's all about being flexible :+)
A longer term arrangement would be preferred.

*We are on the edge of Sydney which means a lot of parks & trees. It's 40 minutes into central Sydney on a bus & 15 minute walk to the new metro train (Showground/Castle Hill) - spend time, perhaps if you're looking for a job/to save some $, live rent-free in exchange for a few hours a day

First of all, I LOVE WorkAway - we have been hosts for years now, however I must admit that WorkAway has got progressively harder as people have jumped on board... there are too many freeloaders & some very bad experiences which has lead me to stay away from WorkAway this last year :+(
SO I just want it to be clear that we do NEED your help and ENJOY your company - Helping means concerning yourself with what I've asked you to do in the way I ask. I like to meet people however it's not ABOUT meeting people, for me it's about GETTING THINGS DONE, and we can have FUN doing it :+)
We have had some WONDERFUL WORKAWAYERS, & we would love MORE - we can Work & be Friends; however if you don't get things done, being a lovely person just isn't enough :+(
We are on the edge of Sydney which means a lot of parks & trees. It's 40 minutes into central Sydney on a bus & 15 minute walk to the new metro train (Showground/Castle Hill). If you like the quiet life with animal love & affection, if you want peace to study, think and write, you will be happy here :+)
Please note that I don't cook for you - I buy food & you make yourself something.

You'll have your own room plus plenty of other discrete spaces around the house to work. Fast wifi 24/7, & normally the house is pretty quiet :+) I also work from home, so a dog-loving digital nomad would be ideal!
A friendly dog that gets on with the 'pack' would be possible
