  • Description


    Hello! I am a mother with my 5 year old daughter. I am a hot air balloon pilot and my season is starting. I leave my house at 5am and come back around 11am which means that I need someone to sleep at the house and to have breakfast with my daughter until I come back! I have her half time with her dad.
    There is space in the house, with an indépendant entrance and shared bathroom ( with another room) , I am half French half English and live in the tarn which is a beautiful countryside area of France. There are lots of little medieval villages to visit, there is the river in which we swim in very often in summer near by, and lots of little events such as music, theatre, barbecues that entertain us in summer! My work depends on the weather which means that the help I need depends on it too. When I fly I need help with my daughter and with house, when I don’t we can visit the area and wonder around. I love being around people and have travelled a lot.
    The house and outside area is big, so help with looking after it would be great.

    I need help with my 5 year old daughter when I work, she is fun and curious! I am a balloon pilot so I only leave for 4 hours at a time ( once a day) it depends on the weather! Either early in the morning or in the evening. If not flying help with the house or garden would be great. There is a swimming pool and a vegetable garden to look after as well.
    I’m also planning on doing simple house works so Help with that would ve very appreciated!
