I grew up on a dairy farm and moved to Melbourne for study and work many years ago. My work in community service takes me all over the north eastern suburbs. I work part time. My 6 children are independent now. I have cared for a pet mouse, canary, dogs, cats, fish, turtle, chooks and farm animals of course but happy to learn to ropes with anything else (other than a snake I think! ) I love to garden. Cleaning is part of my paid job so i would take good care of your place . Pretty handy with a lawn mower too.
