  • Description


    I am needing Au pair type help urgently so I can juggle family life with multiple jobs. It would mostly be with 1 adorable child... Sometimes driving around delivering several children to various activities. I am happy to give more information on request. It is not heavy work and there would be opportunity to seek paid employment locally while enjoying free board. ☺️

    You will have your own room in a tidy house. We live 5 minutes walk from town and 2 minutes walk to the harbour. We have several resident penguins that tend to party all night outside our bedroom windows... You get used to it!🐧🐧🐧

    We have an interest in other cultures and ways of living. In the past we have enjoyed having people from around the world living with us. For a small town there is lots to explore including Steam Punk, Victorian heritage, The vanished world trail and the A2O track. We are non smokers and love adventures. Our family interests include Squash, Tennis, Badminton, Arts, cycling, dance, music and gymnastics.....(expect to see me standing on my head a lot).
