NON SMOKERS ONLY! No vacancies until after Easter.
I (Yvonne) have a house in West Launceston, it is not a farm! Helpers assist me with cleaning, tidying & housework, gardening, weeding, feeding the chooks and cats, food preparation and cooking.
My house is a bit cluttered so I need YOUR help for a few days to a week or so to keep it clean and tidy, so this is not a suitable placement for helpers who don't want to do housework! Work hours depend on what I need you to do, so you must be flexible, but you will work an average of four hours a day. Minimum stay three nights. Not a suitable placement for people also studying or working elsewhere, as I need you to assist me when it is convenient for ME to work at home... and this may be when you are at uni or working elsewhere...
I can collect/deliver you to/from anywhere in Launceston, the local bus depot or Launceston airport. You will be rewarded with good food and a friendly household. My homestay uni student can also speak Mandarin Chinese.
Helpers MUST be NON SMOKERS. Due to allergies and my work with food I WON'T accept any helpers who smoke! No drugs or excessive alcohol consumption allowed. This is NOT the place for the 'party crowd', 'pampered Princesses' or 'lazy layabouts'! We have a busy, somewhat chaotic, lifestyle. My interests include writing, performance poetry, Toastmasters, Rainbow Family, festivals, travel, cooking, Asian culture, environmental & social issues, genealogy, home & family life.
If you are considering staying with us at any time in the future, please contact me as far in advance as you can with the dates of when you want to arrive and leave. I will then check for available vacancies and send you a longer letter about my home, work and family. Below are some photos of me with two of my kids (Ariel and Tegan) and some taken at my home.
