    Dear Workaway,

    We are interested in a placement in the new year, please let me know the window of dates you are expecting to visit the UK.

    I am a senior engineer and live with my husband and daughter who is 16 years old. We are sociable and friendly, we have outdoor interests walking and enjoy spending time at home relaxing. We like to invite family and friends over for dinner.

    I work full-time (7-4 pm) and my daughter is attending school from 8-4 pm. During the week, we have a clear routine. Breakfast 7-8 am and then tidy up. A light simple lunch at 12-1pm and then tidy up. Some activities until 5pm. We normally eat dinner 5-6pm and then tidy up. After 7pm, go for a walk/cycle or watch a movie. We enjoy parks and picnics are good. My daughter will enjoy conversation and some support with her homework. Other activities include gardening, painting, drawing, board games, cards, painting, singing, piano etc...

    The best fit would be a female with good conversation.

    We do not smoke and will only host non-smokers. We eat non-veg and veg, we have meals in the evening together, normally we try something new with a variety of spices and different recipes. I am pleased to experiment and encourage a healthy diet with fresh fruit and vegs. If you have any special dietary requirements, please let me know as soon as possible. We will try to cater for you and meet your requests.

    Sometimes we house sit a small dog. Please let me know if you have animal/bird allergies.

    I would welcome a female to help with my 16 year-old girl. We have an interest in home improvement including painting and gardening.

    My daughter enjoys arts and crafts. We have a garden which could benefit from some maintenance during the day including weeding and leaf clearing. Lastly, an evening meal can be prepared and salad.

    We are looking for someone to join our small family helping in the home, if the arrangement works well for both parties, this could become a long-term hosting opportunity. However, we are pleased to host for a minimum period of 2-3 weeks if a short visit to the UK is preferred, so dates that would work have been identified and if you would like to stay for a longer period, we can discuss this during a whatsup video. Please share your number.

    Driving is not essential, but a good sense of humour is critical. Haha!!

    Cooking is from scratch, we like to experiment and will cook all types including Thai, Chinese and Indian cuisine with, of course some fast-food outings including Chinese or fish and chips.

    We look forward to meeting you and creating some happy memories with you.....

    If you have any allergies or medical requirements, please let me know at the earliest opportunity when you write.
