Hi, I'm a UK law student who's spent most of the past year cooped up at home, so am hoping to spend as much of the summer outdoors as possible. In my free time I like to read lots of history books, go on walks to enjoy the scenery and cook (as well as watching netflix - but there's been far too much time for that recently!).

More details about your skills
I've just completed an undergraduate history degree and am currently on a postgraduate law degree, but I want to develop more practical skills in the countryside. I've always been good with DIY round the house (well, compared to my parents at least), but I have a lot to learn! I'm great with kids, having run programmes for a local youth group for many years and worked as an au pair in Paris for six months through Kinougarde (with twins aged 5 and a girl aged 3). During the pandemic there's been a fair amount of time to brush up on my cooking, and I've learnt to make French pastry. I also have lots of volunteering experience, from visiting isolated elderly people to working as a receptionist at Citizens' Advice (a free legal service).
More details about my language interests
I'm fluent in English and intermediate in French. I'd like to improve my French through conversation with native speakers.
