    Description

    I now live alone with my son in an adorable little red house in the forests of Värmland. He goes to kindergarten during day time and I work with offering massage and health consultations, also starting a new business in organizing. One week per month we go to Stockholm, I for work and my son to see his father. My boyfriend lives with his kids in the nearby city Karlstad. We may welcome a puppy into the family during this spring, so preferably you're not allergic.

    In the house I would need help with cleaning once a week, painting some walls and when spring time comes, some gardening (lawn mowing is enough, but if you're totally down to it, then let's farm some great amounts of veggies) :)

    You may also hang out with my 5 year old son some afternoons if needed when I'm working, and if you would to teach him English, sports or music, that would be greatly appreciated, but not a must. You may bring him for a walk in the forest as well.

    If you're tech savvy and would like to help me with my web page or create video presentations for my work, that can as well be part of what we do together.

    You will be surrounded by the forest here, and hear lots about healthy foods :) We eat mainly vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, sugar free. You don't have to follow our diet, but we ask you to not cook any meat in the main house.

    We live 10 minutes by car away from Ängsbacka Course Center where there are a lot of courses, festivals and happenings going on, so you can meet greatly interesting people through that community.

    If you go into Karlstad (40 minutes by bus), there's a fair amount of shopping, restaurants, cinema and such to take part of as well.

    You will be staying in our guest room in the house and have access to the kitchen, bath room and living room.

    From mid March, a friend of mine will move in to the guest room, so if you apply to stay after that, I will prepare our cute little caravan in the garden so you can stay there and still have access to the house.
