  • Description


    I bought a big, old house in the southeastern part of Sweden in 2016. It has taken me some time to understand that I need help. You will contribute in many ways just by being here. Mind you, it is a house and garden in progress... :-)

    There is a lot of things to fix around the house and garden so there is always tasks to suit most peoples interests.

    I am a big time tea-drinker. My interests are reading, knitting and sewing. I originate from Stockholm, where I have my family and most of my friends - I am a city girl who turned into a countryside spinster... :-)
    I live with my three cats and two goats. I just lost both my dogs hence the dog picture in the gallery. The dogs are still very much with me in spirit...

    You will learn about Swedish food and culture, a bit of diy, planting and growing a vegetable garden etc. And, if you ask me, I think this part of Sweden have some really interesting history and culture...

  • Aide


    There is a lot of different things I need help with, from everyday chores to heavy garden work to easy diy.
    I am looking for enthusiastic, perceptive people who know how to get things done. Willingness to learn and not afraid of hard work is appreciated. You have preferably left home and have some life experience in taking care of yourself and a home and whatever that involves...

    Both indoor and outdoor help is welcome. You should be prepared to share some of the household tasks as well.
    Things I need help with is in general;
    - Help in the garden
    - Painting and minor DIY indoor/outdoor
    - Some help with the goats

    I am flexible when the help is carried out - if you want to help less but every day or more but fewer days I am usually fine with that.
    Since covid I continue to do most of my regular work from home, I might be to the office 1-2 days a week. On weekdays you will therefore be on your own during daytime when I work but we always have dinner together. Over the weekend when I am off from work, I can help out so usually the workawayers that visit me take their days off during the week so we can work together during the weekend.

    The guest bed rooms are in the house. Bathroom/shower is shared.
    I provide supplies for meals (breakfast, lunch, fika and dinner - snacks you have to provide yourself) and sheets and towels. We always have diner together. I am a vegetarian and my cooking is based on things like eggs, diary like butter and cream, vegetables, pasta, lintels, chickpeas, oatmeal etc. Sometimes chicken and fish. Please let me know if you have any food allergies - so I know if I can provide for you...
    I rarely drink alcohol (I do not like being drunk) but you can bring your own. Drugs and intoxication are absolutely forbidden. Smoking is discouraged.
    Cooking and doing the dishes are shared responsibilities.

    Autres infos...

    I live in the countryside so there is quiet here. Not very much is happening besides every day life. I love it but it might not be for everyone. But if you like peace and quiet, socializing in smaller groups of people, enjoy the outdoors this is a place for you.
    There is a village sauna that is fired up every Saturday - men in the afternoon, ladies in the evening and the possibility to book private sauna after that. For me, Saturday evenings with a hot sauna is one of the highlights of the week.
    There are ca 12 km to public transportation but I am used to pick up and drop off people who do not have their own means of transport.
    There are plenty of forest trails for walking, hiking or biking. You can rent canoes not that far away (20 km?) and go for a canoe excursion for 1-3 days. There is the lovely archipelago around Karlskrona (40 km?) with good fishing waters and the beautiful city Kalmar (55 km?) on this side of the bridge to Öland. The "kingdom" of the Swedish glass it not far away from here. Some of the factories are still up and running.
