My husband & I have 3 adult children no longer living at home. We have hosted school exchange students through AFS in the past and now do support for the students. We have a house by the beach and 30 acres of land further up the coast going inland. This piece of land needs weed control and some fencing. It is our lifestyle block and we run some sheep and cattle on it. We stay there from time to time. We live in an old 4bedroom villa which we are still renovating. My husband buys possum fur but is also a builder/handyman. I am a nurse working at the local health centre. I do shift work and sometimes work night duty which means I sleep in the daytime.
The internet can be accessed by wireless broadband.
We have 2 dogs which live outside.
We are non smokers and would only want non smokers please.
