  • Descrição


    Hi my name is Penney and I am looking forward to getting some help this summer when the restrictions are lifted on travel... I live in a simple cottage in Limalonges 79190 and until January of this year I was a full time carer for my husband who sadly died in January after a long illness, hence its been some time since I have been able to host helpers due to this..
    This summer I am looking forward to once again getting all the jobs that require doing up to date again.

    In September this year Im also looking for an animal lover to stay here for 3 weeks for 2 dogs.anyone interested must be able to manage unsupervised, be practical, happy to make their own daily decisions. Dont mind 2 friends who enjoy country life

    There is nothing here that requires doing ,that is a huge project. Mainly it is garden work, which is weeding maintenance, rather than clearance, painting inside and outside, garage clearance and tidying. I would like to get some pointing done if it was possible, and wish to be involved myself in this, however I have no experience so anyone with some is most welcome, as it is ongoing work here which I can continue throughout the year. I have a shed that needs some DIY on the wood surround.

    Help here has always been just Monday-Friday no weekend.

    I enjoy good food and I cook main meal every day evening ,with roast on Sundays . Breakfast is continental , Cereals eggs, toast, which I provide and put out, you prepare and help yourself. I prepare lunch and evening meal.. I'm not skilled in vegan food however, but happy to let you cater for yourself if required. If you like to cook, I would welcome the break and happy for you to cook a meal... I have an easy going household . It is rural here but not isolated and we are surrounded by lovely countryside. near some beautiful lakes just a short ride away.. A couple of nearby Towns with shops and bars .... I prefer you have your own transport, as I cannot offer transport to airports but can collect from Rail stations (Ruffec 16) Savigne 79 I have a bikes here also, for use, if you wish .

    We have 2 dogs in residence , one small terrier and one German Shepherd rescue boy aged 7 yrs . Due to his past history he suffers with separation anxiety so he isnt keen to go walking away from home , but he is getting better , its just kindness, patience and time with rescue animals.. We share a bathroom here as only one in the cottage, but your own room provided with linen & towels provided, we have TV + Netflix.. There is internet facilities .
    I prefer that you are happy to work without supervision , at a time that suits yourself. I am a smoker, now using a vape, but have no objections to smoking.. I enjoy a glass of wine with evening meals ,and have a good sense of humour.

  • Ajuda


    Garden help mainly weeding, painting and bit of DIY inside and out. Dog walking if enjoyed.
    We have plenty of small chores that needs to be done . Sort out and clearing garage space. Nothing here is really hard work, more practical and needs someone able to use their own common sense really. Small shed also needs transforming into an Amazing space for me to practise Reflexology in ! Great project for someone artistic. but it does need some DIY .. Some general repairs outside and painting bedroom walls inside.
