    🇩🇰 We are a small family living in Aalborg.

    👩‍👦‍👦🧎‍♀️Our family consists of my 3 children age between 6-16 and me, 43-year-old mom.

    🌱🌸 we have a garden (kolonihave) approx 3 km from our home, where we enjoy the garden from April-oct.

    🎲We enjoy learning to know other people, swimming, playing board games and cards, watching Disney show and family movies.

    🙋‍♀️Mom wishes help with the kids, in the house or garden, and someone who just loves to cook.

    🧝🏻‍♀️My daughter wishe to practise English/german, and maybe some help with math homework. She started in High School august 2020. She likes to write stories, read fantasy/Sci-fi/crime books and watch movies fx Lord of the rings, Supernatural, Marvel... She calls herself a nerd 👩‍🏫


    🤼‍♀️ The boys love to have a big brother (or sister) to play physical games with like running around, hiding, football, dancing or building something or teach them your favourite sport, instrument/Music or a quiet-game ;)

    🧑My middle child is 11 years old, very hyperactive and noisy, likes to play cards or board-games, cooking, pc, watch movies, laugh and have fun. When he is bored he often starts teasing his sister and brother, driving everyone crazy.

    👦My youngest is 6 years old and enjoy playing outside, play WII, hide and seek, he loves karate. He can be noisy too, and fight with his older siblings. He has just started in School in aug. 2020.

    During the weekdays the kids are in school, the weekends and School-vacation they are home.

    👨‍🦰 The children's father works approx 10-12 weeks abroad and then stay at home approx 10-12 weeks ✈️

    🇫🇴 Despite we live in Denmark, I am originally from the Faroe Islands, which means that the rest of the children's and my family/relatives live in the Faroe Islands 1400 km away from Denmark.
    🗣 Daily we speak Faroese at home, but we also speak fluently Danish, and we speak English.


    🗓 Since the work at our place involves the kids, we prefer longterm workawayers (12+ weeks), to prevent too many changes for the kids, they already miss their father for weeks, and because they bond to you and miss our workawayers when they leave 💔


    🔴🔴🔴

    Since we are a family with children, I require that workawayers who apply:

    - show concern and manners with alcohol and smoking 🍻

    - because of allergi 💦 I hope workawayer will limit their use of parfume or in general spray parfume products or other spray products. You Can put it on outside

    As a single mom where all family lives far away🛫🗺 ⛰ and the children's father is away for long period at a time 🚀I need help to make our family-life just a little more fun and easy with more spare hands 🤹‍♀️

    🎈I only want workawayers to apply if you really love children (especially the noisy, hyperactive and naughty ones ;) ) and want to spend time with the children.

    🎢 With 3 children in the home, it is very difficult to avoid them and you will hear a loud noise and play everywhere in our home.

    🏠Since the work is in our home and to be a part of the family, it is also difficult to have free-time while you are inside our home when the children are home around you, but you are free to explore Aalborg/Denmark :)

    🚍 we live approx 2 km from city center. Public transport in Denmark is quite good, and buses stop 300 m from our home.

    ✈️ Aalborg has an international airport you can travel directly to or from Aalborg to some other European countries. If you planning to arrive with an aeroplane, then please check the price to go directly to Aalborg from your destination. Usually you can get really cheap flight-tickets Aalborg-London.

    🚞 It takes about 4-5 hours to travel from Copenhagen airport (Kastrup) to Aalborg with car or train and approx 3 hours from Billund airport. check prices for the train on DSB website

    I will mostly be able to Pick workawayers up from Aalborg airport or bus/trainstation.

    🚘 Check out GoMore (car-sharing) to see if you can travel budget to your next destination in Denmark - or if you are lucky maybe somewhere in Europe. Or flixbus.dk for cheap bustickets.
