Hi all of you optimistic people ! IT

Now I need a helping hand. I like a nice company too. I’m recovering from a knee surgery. And to be honest it’s not going too well. But I really hope for the best.

We have just settled here in a beautiful country side just out of Borgarnes. In my family house where I grow up near Grábrók, a volcano (not very active!!! ). Also nearby Bifröst - you can find that on Google maps.

I’m looking after our cottage that we rent out.
Some other things are of interest and need to be done. This is some painting rooms, window ex. gardening, doing repair on tables and other things. Depending on the time of the year.

I like helpers to stay for a month or more.......... not too young ...... And independand ...
Someone might say I’m not very organised, that is somehow true but on the other hand misunderstanding, I’m just more relaxed than most. Few things need to be exact others not. Some work has to be done now other jobs are optional. I like to get to know my helper a bit first and see how they are. Then I often make a list of tasks and the helper can pick what they like to do, the weather might be bad or something else might be in the way off a jobs. Then we do something else.
I very often get new ideas, the live is a little floating. I love this way of living.
I live with my husband Hilmar- he is a very nice man, easy to get on with. He works in his own little electric business, play's in a band and sails yacht as his hobbies. He is still working away most days.
I sometimes neat to stay away for few days, I have grandchildren, family and friends, sometimes the helper would go with me there.
It means the helper is sometimes on his/her own but I have good helpfull friend around and Im only a phonecall away. If the persone staying with me likes to see more of Iceland I can help planing trips for few days and even a week depending how long one is staying. Look forward to hear from someone.

I like nature, all kind of art, and nice people.

I do some artwork mostly textile and watercolor, haven't got around to it for some time as much as I would like to.

Intrested in kniting or similar things, you are in a good place :) If someone is out there how could crocaet and test out my patterns is exactly what I neat this up coming winter. Has been on my plan for a long time. I'm making a book in Icelandic and English. Please send my your plans, skills and and interests. It might work for both of us.
That’s all for now. Jóhanna
