  • Description


    Hi everyone
    I am so lucky that I have a litle house in a birch forest southwest in Norway. I love to work outside in my natural garden. Since I live by myself I always come in situations when I miss some help. I am a youthful grandma with a good mood.
    I like young people as it gives me inspiration and joy.
    My garden is quite big, and I wish that someone want to lend me some muscles 💪
    If you know a litle about carpentry, gardening, digging, or painting I will be happy 😃
    My garden is a very silent beautiful plays with birdsong, and also sea view close by.
    It takes only 15-20 minutes to the nearest town, Haugesund. I have an electric car, and will ofcause bring you there and around the area. 🚗
    I also love to talk about life in general. I have three grown up children and five grandchildren.
    I use to spend some winter months in Spain, but have not been there after the Pandamic.
    The Spring and Summertime has to be in Norway. It is so green and we have so fresh air to breath.
    Hope some of you will spend some time for help, and ofcause some wonderful experiences.

    Best regards
