  • What skills do you have?

    (Julia) I am a qualified veterinary nurse and TEFL teacher, and am a good people's person. I have recently gained diplomas in naturopathy and nutrition. Having renovated 3 of our own properties together I've aquired skills such as landscape gardening, tiling, painting and decorating and am willing to turn my hand to anything.
    (Steve) I have strong practical abilities ranging from marine engineering through to motorcycles (having had my own shop for 15 years) and more recently turned my skills to house maintenance and repairs - including building, plumbing, electrics and am a reasonably competent carpenter. I have a strong desire and good ability to fix things and can turn my hand to most things.
