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
DIY and building projects
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Help with Computers/ Internet
You will meet & converse with Bulgarians about Bulgaria, live in amongst Storks & other wildlife. Have a walk around the corner to live digs in the grounds of the museum of the time of our Roman village & could take a trip to see our previously Greek occupied Old Town of Sozopol, previously Sozopolis, where we can have lunch overlooking the sea
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.....
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.
Cleaning out pool & setting it up for summer
Pool cleaning through summer
Gardening, weeding, strimming, 2000 m2 land
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.
I have a 4 bed house with swimming pool, outside kitchen & garden room
I cook & bake, so there will be decent food BUT unfortunately I cannot cater for vegans or special diets, due to cost of ingredients. Vegetarian is fine & if you have a willingness to pitch in & cook too, that would be great. I have a few things veggie I can do but not many
I have 9 dogs, 8 soon, 4 are 9 month old pups who will love you, a Chihuahua, Alsatian mix & 2 very sweet smallish fat fluff balls
I do not provide; alcoholic drinks, cigarettes, toiletries (other than toilet paper) or money.
I would like you to; clean up after yourself, keep bathroom/toilet clean, clean room on leaving. Oh & to have a fun time :-)
