    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I am positive and chatty and I love to tell stories and teach people skills that I have learned over the years.

    I have a small black dog Minx, which is my best friend. A year ago I lost my lovely wife, and I am feeling pretty lonely in the house now without her.

    I look forward to having someone come and stay with me for a longer time and help me out, and someone to talk to.

    I am Robin, a lovely, happy, positive 87-year old man. At my age, everyday choirs are becoming challenging and I would love some help in my everyday life with cleaning, cooking, help in the house, light gardening, help on my little farm, as well as company and someone to talk with.

    On cold mornings I would appreciate help with lighting the fire in the lounge.
    Also having someone make me a cup of tea and porridge in the mornings would be of great help. Preparing lunch and dinners would be helpful as well.
    General household cleaning would be great to get help with.
    Taking my little Skippekee dog out for runs and play with her on the paddock would be lovely.

    I look for a nice person who would like to stay with me, help me out and keep me company.

    I live at a beautiful small farm, with stunning hill and mountain view.
