  • Description


    With three children we are a quite lively familiy. The baby of the family is three years old and his elder brothers are fifteen and seventeen.
    We live in a big farmhouse in the country (nature reserve area), near a big river and have some eco animals (pigs and geese) and a big garden.
    There is always something to do, inside and outside the house like gardening, cooking, cleaning up toys, washing and folding clothes, feeding the animals, sitting the baby, playing with him and so on.
    Currently we restore our first floor and create three nice rooms and a bathroom. We are looking forward to finish this project, but it is much work and is lasting a long time.
    Sitting outside in our garden and having a coffee in the sun, my husband and I wish some help for our daily work.
