I am a teacher and work at a local high school. I live with my parents in our family home.
Creating/ Cooking family meals
We are looking for a person or a couple who can help with general maintenance jobs: painting, sanding, cleaning, and gardening. There may be some jobs requiring basic carpentry skills and experience with sanding/polishing timber floors would be appreciated. If you like farm work then this is also an option as some weekends I work on a friend's farm with animals and in the garden. It is also a chance to see a bit more of the countryside.
I like to speak Spanish and French so if you speak these languages that would be fun. I am happy to help people with their English. I also like food and to share in the cooking and eating of meals.
There is a fold-out bed. After the floors have been sanded and polished, there would be a separate building with a bed for one or two people.
We are in a terrific location. Its about 25 minutes on the train to the city of Sydney, a ten minute walk to Chatswood (local shopping centre) and about 45 minutes by public transport to the beach. There is a national park nearby with some lovely walks and bushland. The train station is also very close and we use public transport. There is no private transport.
