Hi - I'm Amanda and I'm in Co. Fermanagh - I have 4 acres which are mostly clay and rushes, but they give me room to look after a collection of waifs and strays - ex-battery chickens, goats, pigs, cats and dogs. I'm self employed, which in theory allows me to work around the committments of the smallholding....... if anyone has a handy bloke to spare that I could borrow for a while I could do with a hand mucking out the pigs!

Hi - I'm a jack-of-all-trades .... I run an office in the mornings, make wedding and formal dresses in the afternoons and do reiki and massage at the weekend. I'm planning a nervous breakdown between 2.30 and 2.45pm March 22nd 2007!

Mines a saddleback x oldspot who needs a lot of company at the mo till her litter is born. Then she will probably wish she had stayed single
Course I could always load them all in the van & bring them with me !
Wonder what the customs would say at the ferry terminal
"Honest guv we're just on our hols"
Course I'de need a hand to muck out when I got there.

Hmm. I know you can get a pig walking license. Perhaps they should extend it to holidays as well. It would solve a lot of problems.

Welcome.
I would have expected someone to have said that there's no such thing as a handyman by now. Ooops I've just said it.
I'm more of a spare, than a handy

Ah! Bout ye! Co Fermanagh, half of it under water, and the rest should be!
