farmer and housekeeper

Kangaroo and Wombat shelter

I worked for 3 months near Waga waga as a farmer and housekeeper. My job was to clean the house, do the washing, grocery shopping, and feed the kangaroo's before I had to go to the farm, at the farm I did diffrent things like feeding, the cows, bulls,  horses and sheep, and tag/spray the lam and calfs. I would go to the house an hour earlier to prepare the meals and after dinner was served I made sure that the kangaroo's and wombats where alright and all the gates where locked. I had my weekends and nights off but most of the time i was babysitting our neigbours kids or helping them with their homework.
