We have 8 children but they now mostly live in the UK. Our youngest child is still in Spain, but has his own place.
We home schooled the three youngest children up to and including iGCSE exams.
I am an Early Years Specialist and have a teaching online qualification.
My husband is an engineer and can fix anything.
We have three dogs, Melrose, Dundee and Munro, a cat, Gizzy, and a pig, Simon! Only the cat comes in the house.
We live near the coastal town of Puerto de Mazarron and the historic city of Cartagena in Spain.
We love the sea and boats.
We built our home ourselves and we also have a large swimming pool in the garden.
We are very flexible.
Breakfast is served from 8.30 to 9.30, depending on the weather and time of year. We offer boat trips to see the Dolphins and trips to the nearby Historic City, with its museums and castles. There is also table tennis available in the garden and beach days. We sometimes go out for meals and enjoy gathering around the fire pit. We have guitars, a saxophone, and a keyboard in the house, so we are happy for music to be played.
We live on a 4000 sq mts of land surrounded by hills and trees.
Lunch can be a picnic on the beach, boat, or around the pool in the garden.
Afternoon activities are just as varied as in the morning including cycle rides, quad rides, white water rafting, and walks.
Dinner is usually enjoyed at home.
In the evenings, we play games, watch television, or sit around the fire pit while listening to music.
Mon séjour (2 semaines) chez Carol et Ken a été formidable. On se sent immédiatement intégrer dans leur famille. J’ai pu réellement progresser en anglais grâce à nos nombreuses discussions sur des sujets diverses mais aussi grâce à toutes les rencontre que j’ai pu faire. Mercii beaucoup.
