I am a 45 years old italian woman, with an husband, a 10 years old boy, two dogs and a cat. Our family is happy and full of life. I work with my husband in a small restaurant in Naples. We work monday to friday till afternoon, so I often need help with my son, and with the dogs. My little boy is intelligent and very talented in arts and sciences. He is funny and he likes gym skateboard rollerblades and videogames, of course. My two dogs are quiet and sweet. Koukla is an old lady dog who doesn' t really like other dogs, but is the most sweet lady with people. Buddy is a young rescued dog who is scared by people and needs time to trust someone, but once he does he never stop loving you. Couscous is our little rescued kitten who pretends to be a dog. And, last but not least, I have one more old and nice dog that lives in ny mum's house, few meters from here. Being outside most part of the day it is difficult for me to take care of my family and my house. I don' t really mind about the house, I' m not crazy about homeworks, I prefer to do everything during the weekend, when I can enjoy the house and the family. We live in a flat in Portici, just outside Napoli, a wonderful town on the south of Italy, knewed for the arts, the food and the people. My home is about 100 mt from the train station, next to the seaside, and from there it just takes a 15 minutes to be in Napoli main train station. I studied arts and history, so I can be a really good guide to my hometown.

I need someone I can trust in. Someone who Knows what does it means to stay with a child or take the dogs for a walk. The help I need is monday to friday. To walk my son to the - school at 8.30, then walk a dog in my mother house. My son is out of school at 13.30, so before lunch the dogs in my house must be walked. And then at 6 pm a walk to the dog in my mum's house. I would like the person to speak in english to my son so he can practice, cause I have relatives in London and I would like he to go for holydays on his own sometimes. We are not a rich family, so I don' t have any person to clean the house, so a little help would be really nice, and I will like a person who can take care of his room and stuff and help me for little things: watering the plants, throw the rubbish, or help with laundry when I am not able to do it. Bur most of all I need him/ her to keep the kitchen clean every day, wash the dishes and give a clean to the floor, because I often have no time for it. It would be nice someone talented in arts as well cause I would like to recycle my old furnitures and make my house more " unique", but this is not imperative.
we offer a room with doublesized bed, a window and furnitures. Use of washing machine and everything is in the house. Free wi-fi. Good food. And a relaxed family
What else ...
