  • Description


    We are a family of 3, 2 little cheeky girls & me, their dad. Thea is 11 and is interested in being a teenager! and Fae my youngest daughter has profound disabilities from cerebral palsy and is non- verbal and uses a wheel chair. She loves games and both girls are absolute treasures, and they both attend the Steiner school here in Frome. We have a lovely young dog called Liza who is very chilled out.

    We are a very creative family, we are very easy going but not conventional and being free spirits are a bit quirky. I am working in music production when I get time and writing projects and play and listen to lots of music.

    My wife died in July 2017 year and I am struggling to cope with the pressures of maintaining a home while looking after 2 young children, so need help from someone who is light hearted, has a fun attitude and is patient and kind with my children. Duties would include child care, general tidying, deep cleaning, washing up , sorting clothes washing, sorting spaces, shopping, bit of gardening in spring and summer. We would be happy to share our home, friends and the wider community with you in exchange for 4 hours work per day Monday to Friday. Being able to speak good English is essential so that we can understand each other

    We need someone who 18 and over is self-sufficient, organised, has initiative, is chilled out, gets stuck in and helps. I have my hands and need someone who is self motivated and have initiative.

    Accommodation is in a caravan which has a cosy wood burning stove and is in front of the house so you get space. The toilet is in the house, but I will get a portaloo if that's a problem. There is also a tipi if you like outdoor living! I will provide all your main meals and we cook a hot meal in the evening that we will eat together (or you could cook if you wanted for us!) You would help yourself to breakfast and lunch.

    We live in Frome which is a thriving creative old town full of artists, musicians, writers and creative folk. Frome has a strong community of people and is a vibrant place to live. We are just on the edge of the town with views over hills of country side, and yet we are just a 10 min walk down the river to town. Frome is in the ‘West Country’ and is 2.5 hours from London by train, its 2 hours from Devon, and about 20 miles away you will find the historic city of Bath, the big city of Bristol, and Glastonbury with its amazing Tor

    We have bikes which you are welcome to use.
