    General help around the house, especially gardening, leaf sweeping, hedge clipping, maintenance, cleaning, tidying and painting, carpentry...and I may sometimes need help with cleaning too.
    If you know how to use chainsaw, strimmer and gardening tools it could be useful.

    You might be asked to feed pets, horses, occasionally prepare vegetables, if you enjoy cooking we love tasting different foods, -- Activities with the children are especially welcomed: bicycle rides, basketball, tennis, badminton, table tennis, swimming, playing cards and board games and non-screen craft ideas are really appreciated.
