I am a teacher of English as a foreign language taking some time off to do some more creative things. One of which is to renovate our family's flat in Edinburgh. I have one dog, who is a beautifully behaved Beagle cross Bulgarian street dog. Also in the country my family has sheep, ponies and other animals. There may be a possibility of work there too, in the Scottish Borders, helping with lambing for example.
I am friendly, active and outgoing, I like going out to listen to live music. I have two grown up daughters and an extensive family around the world. I speak fluent Italian and am learning Spanish.
The flat is in the middle of a beautiful part of the city centre with a friendly local community. It is near to the Meadows, a large area of tree lined avenues and open grass fields. The flat is in need of some repairs needing carpentry skills, plasterwork, wallpapering and the painting of walls, ceilings and woodwork. The painting is already underway. There is also a shared garden that needs some usual annual attention, such as cutting back shrubs and pruning outsized trees.
I am looking for friendly, energetic helpers who are willing to help with all the above. Previous experience or willingness to learn new skills both welcome.
I look forward to hearing from you.
