*Help needed, but you should already be at Finland*
I am Meri 46, an ordinary lady with great sence of humor and positive attitude. I live in a big old house 7km from city of Kokkola with my adult son (20). We have a dog, 2 cats, 2 snakes and a horse. Right now I need help with (renovating house,) everyday cleaning, warming the house with wood and sometimes with animals if I work late.
Simple help and peaceful place, in.case you need a break of hurry!
(horse or snake experince not needed and the dog is very small and easy). My place is on countryside, but you can take a bus or bike and go into shop or city if needed.
I am a Green Care coach and practical nurse, working as a green care therapy work adviser for special groups. I like outdoor life, camp fire, forest hikes, dressage and off-road riding. I am also interested of psychology and mindfulness etc.
I prefer veggie food (including cheese, milk, eggs etc), and I'm gluten free, so these diets are easily founded on this house.
DIY and building projects
Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
City of Kokkola is located to Gulf of Ostrobothia sea. My village Kruunupyy is located 15km from Kokkola. Area is very flat, easy to bicycle and nature is always close. Here is lots of hiking paths and off road bycycling paths and sand beaches. City of Kruunupyy close, 2km. For years when I was married, we had exchange students from different countries so I am quite used to introduce the area, living habits and organizing experiences.
The house is heated by wood. so there is always some chopping (with machine) and to do.
Big garden: garden tasks in summertime, snow chores on wintertime.
I also have a small laundry to do (horse rugs)
