    Hi workawayer!

    We are family of four plus one furry one.
    Me (Anna) and my fiance (Bjarki) have been together for almost 11 years and we have 2 kids at the age of 7 years (Alexandra) and 1 year old (Frosti). We are at the age 27 and 31 years old.
    Then its our furry one, our cat Berglind (2years).
    We live in Grindavík wich is 25 minutes drive from the capital of Iceland (Reykjavik). Grindavík is also located 5 minutes from the blue lagoon (geothermal spa). Very beautiful nature all around.

    We are very open, considerate and fair people.
    I work part time (I work through booking system) so we would sometimes require babysitting for us when Bjarki wont be able to have the kids (he works shifts at the aluminium plant).
    Nóvember-December is usually very busy for me at my job.
    Im more than happy taking you for daytrips and show you around if time is given to. We are also very active on weekends and you would be more than welcome to join us!

    Note that I mark us as smokers, I (Anna) smoke a little bit and if you smoke it would be okay outside. I dont want cigarettes on the lawn or anywhere else than the trash. (chainsmokers not accepted!) :)

    We also look into having couples!

    Animal care: Our cat gets to eat twice a day other than that she like's petting and attention!

    Cooking: It's very important that you know your way around the kitchen! we love tasty food! we also love baking so knowing how to bake would be great!
    We are looking to eat a little bit more healthier food than we are used to wich is alot of hamburgers and pizzas! :')

    Cleaning the house and laundry: Keeping the entire house clean (around 120 square meters on one floor).
    *wipe the dust / clean the dirt off.
    *vaccum and clean floor (vaccum everyday, clean when needed)
    *bathroom clean (sink,mirror,shower and toilet)
    *Kitchen all clean. (everything that would need a cleaning)
    Change the sheets of the beds 1 time a week.
    *Put in the washing machine. taking out and hang to dry.
    We take bigger cleaning 1 time a month (windows, oven, under furniture etc). Then we all work together.

    Babysitting: I need help with Frosti (14 month's). It is usually between 08:00-11:30 ish. He has schedule every morning which sounds like this:
    7.30 breakfast
    9:45 snack time
    11:30 ish nap time
    When the weather is good then it would be nice to take him out for a walk or play 🙂
    Then also I would need help at other time of the day with him.

    Our daughter loves learning english! So if you know how to teach and are patient it would be a big plus!
    She also needs more attention and learn how to communicate nicely to people. So taking her out to the park etc will also be required.
