We are a family of four, living in Kristiansand,a medium sized town south of Norway. () We are a busy, happy and easy-going family:) The kids,a girl (11) and a Boy ( 3) is full time in daycare. My husband is working at the University and I am a Self employed within the beauty-business. Our house is located outside town and it`s easy to get around by bus and bicycle. The room available is loctated in 1.st floor with your "own" bathroom. We are sleeping i 3´rd floor so there is room for privacy for all of us;) I am without my drivers license for 6 months and could need some help getting around ( with my cool pink Minicooper) Drivers-License is therefor required. We could also need some extra hands to "run the house". That will mean help cocking, organizing, babysitting and some cleaning. We also travel a lot in the country and abroad and sometimes need someone to company our beautiful Ragdoll and watch the house when we are away. Sometimes we bring the "helper" with us, and someone else can take care of the cat and the house;) Since there are children involved the stay must be at least two months.
There is also possibilities to get a similar job with our neighbors if you are two girlfriends traveling together.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
We have had visitors from different countries living and working with us for several years, and are used to have people around. This is the first experience with Workaway, but we`ve joined au pair programs, and had people living here on turis-visa. We think it is enriching for all of us,both culturally and personaly. Kristiansand is a great town to explore South of Norway and from our place it is easy to get around. Here is a link:
We have a big family and network and there will be plenty of events to join and places to explore. We have cabins avalable both in the mountains, by the sea (Lindesnes) and in the woods. There is a lot of beautiful tracks and nature to explore in the area we live in as well.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
The workdays will be two evenings and three days during the week. We can make a specific schedule if that is required, but as long as the tasks are done during the week, we are flexible to change it. Once a week we need help to clean the house and the other days it will be some hours with light housework/cooking/private driver/shopping. If the connection with the kids are good there will be babysitting and maybe picking up in the kindergarten as well.
You will have your own small room with a bed, closet and desktop,- and have "free access" to the food-chamber/kitchen. The bathroom is combined with our laundry-room and have all facilities. We try our best to eat dinner together every day.
