About the workproject

We need 1 volunteer

We are a busy couple with two school aged children aged 6 and 8 years. We would love some help in our "mad house" with the gardening and preserving fruit, childcare, cooking and helping out with homework and playing sports outside with the children! (Our son particularly loves rugby and cricket and our daughter loves riding her bike and playing make believe games)
On some occasions while I am at work in the afternoons my hubby would love some help with keeping the household running and helping out with the very busy after school routine! Good cooking skills would be thoroughly appreciated smile

We have been married for 11 years! We have two very lively children and a pet cat called max who our children Charlie (8) and Rosa (6) adore!!! I work as a midwife so my hours are variable and often in the afternoons and my hubby Tim works for an agricultural firm. We both love meeting people and learning about different cultures and are excited about this venture!
Tim is very active and exercises daily with varying fitness routines! He is passionate about sport, particularly New Zealand rugby and is undertaking coaching our sons rugby team!
I am house proud and passionate about my surroundings, colour, photography, travel and socializing with people and learning about their cultures! I work with women and their families and I guess we are fortunate as midwives to be involved in a very intimate and special part of their lives.
