We're the three best friends that anyone can have :)
We're a happy little family that enjoys each others company and are not afraid to laugh and tease each other.
We live in a small rural town called Martinborough. Martinborough is famous for its 20-odd vineyards, most within walking or cycling distance of the village square; so although it's rural it's often got lots of events happening.
We love the community environment but are lucky to be close enough to the capital city when we need a change of scene.
We're looking for someone to join our little gang to enjoy our little slice of paradise.
1. Theres me; Jade the mumma bear. I work full time in Wellington city.
The week days are not overly exciting as it's just grinding through work and household chores but we more than make up for it in the weekends with sports and activities.
I play netball in the weekends and often try and make sure we do at least one physical activity each weekend (whether it be going to the BMX dirt track, going for walks, going for bike rides, going down to the river to climb dirt mountains and throw stones in the river, going over to Wellington to go to new playgrounds etc).
I'm looking for someone who can help with before and after school care, anything else above and beyond that would just be an added bonus to me (general house work. i.e. vacuuming, dishes, helping out with meals).
2. Ioane (pronounced "you-ah-knee". It's Samoan for John, we tend to just call him Ani "pronounced Arnie") is my big boy. He has just turned 5 and started school earlier this year. Ioane is a very active inquisitive child. Ani loves to ride his bike or his scooter. Often during the week we'll go for a quick bike round around town just because he loves to get out and do stuff (and also cause it can burn out a little bit more energy from him!). Ani loves sports and will often be kicking or throwing balls around the yard; he plays kids rugby and wants to start play football as well. He also does swimming in the weekend.
3. Ainslee is our little girl, she turned 3 in July. Ainslee is a sweet child who just enjoys where-ever/whatever Ani and I are doing. She's a happy go lucky child.
We live in a house with a large yard.
The house has beautiful wooden floors and a roaring fire. There is 1 bathroom and two toilets.
The children and I often will play football, rugby, athletics, baseball in our backyard.
I don't really encourage TV or tablets at my house, I try to encourage playing outside or playing with toys or reading books Before we turn the TV on.
I hope that gives you a good view of who we are, where we are and what we do.
Feel free to get in touch if any of this sparks your interest.
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
Primarily I'm looking for someone to help out with dropping the children off to daycare & school and also to pick them up once daycare/school finishes :)
It would be great to have help with the household chores and gardening as well.
Martinborough is packed with colonial charm, and criss-crossed with walking and cycle tracks to explore.
Come and enjoy the rural slice of paradise with us.
We have a spare room in our house with a built in wardrobe.
We will be sharing a bathroom.
There are lots of things to do in Martinborough. Vineyard cycle tours, breweries, farm tours, cycling & mountain biking, walks.
Outside of Martinborough there is still more activities to do such as Stonehenge Aotearoa, Alpaca farm, Tui Brewery & more.
