  • Description

    Despite my age I am a fit, enthusiastic female. I am hardworking, cheerful and reliable. After many years in the RAF I decided to now have a few years as a Workawayer for long or short periods. Over the last 8 years I have volunteered gardening, working with animals, birds and teaching children in England and abroad so am used to adapting to different environments and like to be outside. I completed my 7h Workaway in March 2014 at a school in the Nepalese Himalayas where I tutored Nepalese children in English and also helped the host with painting and decorating and have just completed my 15th Workaway in Dorset, gardening and utting back trees and weeds in grounds of a plant nursery. I have also worked at farms and smallholdings in the UK and Europe which involved gardening and vegetable growing and harvesting.

  • What else ...

    I am a happy, optimistic, independent person who is kind and considerate and respectful of other people. Willing to 'muck in' to get jobs done. I am definitely not a hedonist but even though I have lovely family and friends in England (including a grown up son and Granddaughter), I like to travel and get the most out of life. I like to learn new skills and put them into use as you can see from above. Please take the time to consider me and I hope to hear from you soon. Odette
