Ben is now 14, & we have been Homeschooling/unschooling he was 7 - he loves interesting conversations about history, philosophy & geography. He manages this himself now. He plays a lot of cricket, & knows his way around a skatepark.
No project, just family life... it's all about being flexible :+)

*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

A few weeks of gardening for someone who's good at creating strong structures - fencing, trellis, rockery
~dogs - MUST have NO fear of medium-size, energetic DOGS
~we homeschool so it will be great if you're curious about that but Ben manages this himself mainly, though he's keen for excitable discussions on ANY topic, & geography/history quizzes you're interested!
~room is SHARED
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 :+(
