    Hello lovely helpers!
    Since 2017 we hosted about 20+ different workawayers and it was a great experience!!

    🌷🌷🌷 Springtime in Cologne!? 🌷🌷🌷
    Actually we moved to Cologne, Germany.
    Now we search somebody who want to come in our apartment in Köln during springtime ☀️
    From the 8th of April to the 25th of April.
    We need you to look for our 🐈 cat and our lovely home, while you can enjoy the city!
    We planned to visit our familys and we don't want to let our lovely tomcat alone at home :)
    You can live here this time for free, if you look good for our cat (feeding, hugging, cleaning his toilet, let him go outside) and our home (hold a basic order, cleaning, watering some plants).
    You can use the apartment, with bathroom, kitchen, a lot of books and a very nice surrounding (parks, shops, tramway nearby and more), you have just to pay/buy your food.

    This springtime we will only go away about 4 days at the beginning and at the end of your stay. The time between, the children are on holiday and Daddy is working and travelling a lot, so Mummy needs a Kids-sitter :) sometimes in the day or evening.
    We will live together like a family during 8 days or so. We will show you the surroundings, eat together, play and tidy up together and everyone will have time for himself as well. So that it fits everybody.

    Are you tidily and sympathetic? Do you like children and animals? :) You are very welcome to contact us as soon as possible :)

    ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️

    Our description from the past (things have changed, but to have on idea of us):

    We are a young, little, German-French family with
    two girls who are born in February2015 and November2016, and then there is our tomcat, Jerry.
    We like cultural exchange, other languages and new ideas…
    In the everyday life I need help with cooking, cleaning, to hold a basical order and looking for the kids!
    We eat vegetarian food. We prefere organic food.
    We cook very healthy, and creative - every dishes are unique, good recipes were noted :) - I love to make our own, bread, salted and sweet cookies, own müsli and icecream...
    We have any television, but we like music :) we have a piano, hang and a guitar at home.
    We sing and dance a lot.
    I have some years of Yoga experience, the girls love it too. Let's do it together!

  • Help

    Help

    The most needed are helping hands in the everyday life.
    With cooking, cleaning, shaping the days with the girls, hold a basical order, gardening and more.
    Especially to have a creative, motivated and patient way with the children!
    That means:
    -eating together, sometimes giving someting to eat, changing nappies, bringing to the toilet, laughing together, consoling, marveling, playing creative - in the garden, in the nature, at home or going for a walk with the little bikes. We like to be outside in every weather!
    -Sometimes it means to change clothes, to wash the girls and/or to bring them to bed.
    -to bring or to pick them up from school.
    -to be there an evening when the girls are sleeping and the parents go out.
    -Often, to take care of the children means only to be there - to share time.
    -Playing means to discover, to listen, to sing, to dance, to tell stories, to be loud and to look inward -> to share what you like!
    -Playing means also: cooking together like to shell nuts, to peel potatoes... Or to hang out the laundry together
    Or to have a look for the plants in the garden... ->not for a big result, more for fun and to enjoy learning together.

    I work independent like dancetherapist, so I have some clients irregularly, groups sometimes in the evening and two afternoons the week. I have to prepare also a lot of my work at home.
    Usually you are never more than 3hours alone with the kids and I'm always available on the phone.
