I stayed almost 2 months with Dot and Steve, and I felt like at home. I was given a warm welcome, and I had a very good relationship with all the family.
Dot is like a second mother and make you feel at home, she is very caring and I was never lacking of anything with her. She likes chatting and knowing more about you. With Steve I spent some evenings watching movies, thanks to him I learnt new English movies and series, particularly "The Inbetweeners" which is really funny. You will definitely improve your listening skills with him (good luck haha) because he is Scottish. Two children are still living in the house: Mitchell (22) and Heidi (32). They are like bother and sister for me. Mitchell is very funny and will teach you the Bristolian style of life. We used to regularly chat in the evening after work. Heidi is a very interesting person and very chatty, you can talk about everything with her. She is very helpful as well, everytime I had a question she has always managed to give me all the information I needed.
Georges, an other son of Dot, is not living there anymore but he used to regularly come over. He is also like a brother for me. He was really welcoming with me and was very curious about me and my culture. The first weekend he made me visiting Bristol and I discovered nice places I didn't know before. We used to regularly have English breakfast in pubs together, and I was helping him to do some work in the front garden to build new walls and to pour concrete. His partener Ella is really friendly as well, and they have a young son, Teddy, who is very adorable!
I was very lucky to be a member of the family, it was a really nice experience. You won't lack of anything with them, and you will feel very welcomed but you will also have your own independence. I can't thank them enough to host me, and they will always be welcome in my house.
Dorothy and Steve hosted me for 4 nights while I was staying in Bristol and were warm, welcoming and friendly. They were chatty and even had meals ready for me on some nights which was not expected but much appreciated. I can't praise this family enough for their hospitality and kindness.
Cheers Steve and Dorothy
