We live in a small village in the picturesque Scottish Borders. We are close to the new Borders railway and less than an hour from Edinburgh by road.
In September/October 2019 we are looking for some help- mainly being around for our 9 year old daughter before and after school 3 days a week.
We have a lovely big sunny garden which is not low maintenance at all, so if someone also has green fingers that would be great.
There would probably be a car to use too, so exploring would be easy. It’s also great cycling country with lots of quiet roads and great views.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
Being close to Edinburgh and also in beautiful countryside, staying with us would be a great way to find out what living in rural Scotland is like.
Both of us have quite unusual jobs so there might be an opportunity for some informal ‘shadowing’ if journalism or politics is your interest.
See the above description which tells you a bit about us and where we live
You will have your own sunny room- either a cosy attic with own toilet and washbasin or a larger room with a double bed and shower room close by. There is plenty room- it’s an old interesting house.
Meals would be provided, but there might be some evenings where you would make the meal.
Weekends would be yours, so you might want to explore further afield.
I work one day a week from home and am off Fridays.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
Maximum 4-5 hours a day, 5 days a week
