    Description

    I'm 48 yo British woman who has lived in Sweden since 2015. I recently bought a little house in the forest in Värmland close to the Klarälven river. It is a beautiful spot here, very peaceful. I suffer from some chronic health problems which make it difficult for me to do things around the place and I would love some help for a variety of things throughout the year. From general maintenance, driving, gardening, cleaning, helping to get the shopping, snow removal, chopping wood, painting, putting up light fittings and curtain rails. All kinds really. There are things I simply cannot do myself. Although certain chores need doing there will be plenty of time for relaxing, walking in the forest and taking trips out. There is a bike you can use, but there is no public transport out here. We can arrange trips out to different places together while you are here and I can drive you into town to catch a bus if you want to head out on your own. This is a place for tranquillity and relaxation, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. I spend a lot of time working on my computer or making crafts and watching movies in the evenings. I have a simple life. I would like someone to come and just fit in and not expect too much of me and to be able to see for yourself what needs doing without me having to micromanage. Please don't be a fussy eater, I eat meat and try to stay as low-carb paleo-friendly as possible for my health. I am happy to teach English. I am learning Swedish myself, but I am still terrible at it. It will be lovely to meet people from all different walks of life and make some new friends - welcome to my little house in the forest.

    I am not someone who is easily offended. If you see something that needs cleaning and you clean it, I won't be offended. If you see something that needs doing then let me know. The more helpful you are the better. You will have the use of a bike and we can go into town in the car shopping, and also out on trips and if you want a lift to the bus station to head out on your own, that is fine too.
