A few words about the family: 
Our family is consisted of two members: one is healthy (me) and my husband, who is retired because of illness; we are young, under 50, no children (unfortunately), but a big amount of work. My husband is a foreign citizen, retired in Romania where we "built" a small farm, at the beginning, but because of the pleasure to work outside it grew more with the time, and now I find myself not able to face it alone, specially when I have to do man-work where requires more craft.
