    Description

    Couple in late 60's, ex psychologist and OH computer engineer. Female Scot, and male English...speak some French. Animal lovers and OH builds drones and model flying air planes. Very casual laid back and enjoy a stress free life. We have a good sense of humour, have grand children that live in UK. This sounds all rather boring but we are not. Looking for help in the garden mostly. We are a laid back haphazard pair enjoying our retirement and looking for someone who also enjoys a laid back life! We do spend a lot of time walking the dogs and on the internet keeping abreast with the rest of the world and friends.
    I smoke OH doesn't. I am a pescatarian but OH eats meat.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We have a bicycle, and live in a in a very rural position. We as hosts would need to take any volunteers out. We are a pretty easy going couple who enjoy playing on laptops, ipads, internet, dog walking....Local boot sales, interesting historical architecture and good night markets.
    We lead a very leisurely stress free life and spend a lot of time just enjoying our retirement :) What can we say, we are fairly normal, interested in politics, animal welfare and , me knitting.
    We have not done this before so we too are learners!
