I have 3 children + 4 grandkids, which I try my best to ruin!.. But sadly, no longer a partner.
I love southwest (Aquitaine) France, its very similar to where I live (south downs national park)..
I think Aquitaine people are generally nice and the food is great!!
Have yet to draw a pension, as I'm still working. But work is very fexible and at my choosing.
I love children and animals.
Have done a bit of house/pet sitting in the past. The first being a dog, cat & 5 horses. Having never been 'that' close to a horse let alone on one in my life, it was a bit daunting at first.
I have done renovations/alterations to all the properties I've bought.. One, an old coach house had just 3 walls
remaining and all needed 'underpinning'.
I specialize in 'leadwork', mainly on roofs. But also in a more artistic form.. I was lucky enough to be asked to do some pieces for a world famous ceramisist on his 'Quietus' project. This 'kickstarted' the artwork -- (which I never knew I could do)
I love getting my hands dirty and have no problem when the dust is flying...
Not many pics' I'm afraid, as I seem to have lost most when uploading to the new laptop. -- Computer skills are 'not' on my list of skills!
Cooking / shopping
Help with Eco project
Help in the house
Most basic building skills, but not electrics or advanced plumbing
sadly, just english. But hopefully some french in time
Every property I've bought I've altered and hopefully, improved!
Don't be mislead by my age!.. I play badminton weekly. Whack a ball around the golf coarse with a genuine 13 handicap and work for my son (who's now the governor) on building works. I specialise in roofing and leadwork
