    I'd need a joyful and sociable workawayer for three weeks: from the last week of June (23/6) to the second week of July (12/7).During the day the major aim is taking care of three girls: Irene (8 yo), Eleonora (6 yo) and Arianna (20 months) speaking in English.
    They don't speak English but they are studying it at school, so they should improve it. My house has a little garden, so Workawayers could help me to gardening. In general I won't work during summer period, so I surely will be at home to help Workawayers doing whatever is needed.
