    edit: I'm sorry to say that we might have found someone to stay with us indefinitely but if things change I'll amend the calendar.

    Hi there! There's 3 of us here, our 3 year old son Buckley, David - The Daddy and myself - Ewa - the Mummy. We live in a 3 bedroom house in Leeds, UK.

    We're struggling to fit it all in and I have a real need for "the village".

    We live in a nice area called Kirkstall, near the Kirkstall abbey ruins.

    David works full time as a Health Visitor and I work some evenings as an administrator. We volunteers at a local Community Garden and generally try to spend time out and in nature.

    We are a little bit alternative, into attachment/unconditional parenting, so aiming to be more loving that disciplinarian so it would be lovely if you were able to accept that and try to follow a similar approach. We basically try to be gentle, loving and child-led.

    I speak both English and Polish fluently.
    You can join us at the allotment /community garden where we're learning how to grow vegetables.
    We're out and about every day, either to the abbey ruins, the museum, library and playgroups, we walk a lot and spend some time outdoors every day and go on trips out visiting county houses /parks for walks.

    At the moment I'm try to "do it all" and not managing. I wish I had a female companion to share the day with. Interchangeably play with Buckley and help in housework. To not be a worker but more like a family member or a friend. For example I often spend long time washing dishes whilst Buckley begs me to read to him. It would be lovely to simply have someone to read to him whilst I wash up or vice versa.

Please note that the house in the background isn't ours, I'm struggling to find a picture with David as well as Buckley.
