We (my 12 year old son & I) live in a 3 bedroom semi detached in a lovely cul de sac about 45 minutes away from Manchester. We have shared our home several times already with guests and they quickly become part of our family with english traditions mixed with their own and we ensure we have fun sharing our cultures and getting to know each other. We have a small puppy called Leia who brings her own entertainment. I work fulltime in Manchester and often offer to take people into town if this is more convenient. There is lots to do near us such as shopping or eating at the Trafford Centre that is about 15 minutes walk from us. We also have lots of friends and family and in the summer often entertain in our garden.
