  • Description


    Hi, welcome to my profile.

    I moved full time to Bulgaria Ten years ago with my husband.
    I have sadly found myself living as a single woman
    This means I now need help, due to various problems affecting my hands & back & energy levels, I struggle with physical tasks, oh dear I sound like an old crock, but I try. I also care for my 94 Yr old mum who now lives with me

    I would love to swap accommodation & good food for some help. If you have a car I can show you some lovely beaches, Yes I'm not far from loads of beaches. You can get a bus from the centre of my village into Burgas if you have no car

    I am pretty laid back & love to socialise over food. I had my first year with Workawayers, 2014, some of which have been a real blessing to me and my last property, helping to turn it into a home. It is cosy by the fire in winter & lovely in the spring/summer, I'm on the edge of the village with great views over mountains, hills, lake and nestled towns.
    There is much to see & to visit here but also the perfect place to relax & unwind.
    There are 8 dogs & 1 cat so lots of housework needed, which I would absolutely appreciate.
    I am a re-designer of furniture & a Stockist of chalk paint, stains & Enhancements I am building my business & would love help, ideas, to promote it & set up a website
    I also write short coffee time stories & have a blog but no time to indulge in these pastimes at the moment.
    My home has changed from what is in the photos as I have moved I'm trying to change these photos

  • Help


    I am looking for people who would love to experience life in a rural village in southern Bulgaria. Not afraid of hard work, who can work on own initiative.

    RIGHT NOW; I need help with.....
    Mainly housework
    Garden clearing, painting a ceiling wall etc, renovating a bedroom. Moving furniture and boxes spring cleaning. There are lots of things to get on with.
    If you are artistic I would love some garden design
    Maybe you can dig make a natural pond?
    Rooms to paint. For instance if you came today I have paint waiting for the living area, along with brushes& rollers ;-)

    So much to do so please tell me if you have specific skills that I need & I can utilise them as well as making sure I have the materials needed.

    General chores.....
    Cleaning out pool & setting it up for summer
    Pool cleaning through summer
    Gardening, weeding, strimming, 2000 m2 land
    Painting inside
    Art project in kitchen bathrooms, painting & stencilling tiles
    Wood - chopping, stacking.
    Gate building for pool area general maintenance improvements.
    Any help in the garden with little cost would be a major blessing

    Also needed, help in the house. Housework is just too much for me at the moment, this is a big house

    An ability to work with wood & plumbing etc would be great basically a handy person OR just handy with a paint brush and drill.
    The garden work needs a willingness to work hard & impart ideas

    Would love a caring female who can look after my mum while I have a few days away on my own in June, July & August.
    Someone with a car to take me to car boot sales so I can promote my business

    So something for everyone.

    Down time is spent around the pool in summer, swimming, sunbathing etc.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon.
