Hello! My Name is Carolin, I am a single mother with four kids in the age of 14, 10, almost 5 and almost 2. We live in Coppenbrügge, that's a village with a good infrastructure (train station) and nice surrounding (mountain called "Ith" is good for climbing and hiking). We live in a small house that I own since two years. In the house and in the garden are some things to be renewed/ to build. It's pretty difficult for me to do these projects on my own since there is already lots of work with the kids and the daily housework. I would be very happy if you could join us for a while and just share the life. There are different jobs to do like playing with kids, to be active in the kitchen, to organize the house and so on. Me and my daughter need a glutenfree diet, so it's necessary to try to keep the kitchen glutenfree. Also I cook and bake mostly vegan (My daughter is strict, others can make exceptions). I studied social work, but am currently not working since my youngest child is still at home. The bigger kids are learning in a free school that is located near (That school was the reason to move in this village, and it has been a perfect decision). I love music, there are some musical Instruments available in the house (piano, accordeon, guitar). Especially I love to practice accordeon in these days, it helps me everytime to become okay if I feel too stressed or overexcited. And also we share the house with two cats. My patchworkfamily is quite international, my 10year old boy knows french and I am used to communicate in english. In the past we often lived in shared appartements or had bnb-guests, so the kids know the situation of meeting new people and having guests. We are open-minded and really looking forward to welcome you. Please feel free to contact me if you have the impression that our life situation could fit for some days/weeks/months.

I would be glad if you could help me out with some child care, with some housework or with some building/renewing. It depends on your interests and skills. My main issue ist that the day has only 24 hours and that I've got only two hands.

I can't keep in mind how to calculate the Internet capacity, but its possible that three people are watching different films at the same time.
