    Currently looking for someone to start around 19th Feb and stay for a minimum of 2 weeks

    Will mainly be helping me entertain my 2 year old and helping clean my accommodation and doing laundry etc.
    I am looking for people to help me clean up around my garden and help clean my house and accommodation rooms and also help me with my baby. (Must be social people who enjoy sharing drinks)
    I am looking for relaxed, easy going people who like to share a few wines/beers and listen to some music. I am prepared to cook 3 meals a day but you must supply your own snacks. Would not suit people who are too fussy about food (vegetarians are fine, however, I am not one) We cannot cater for vegans sorry. I usually ask for about 4 hours per day of work.
    I would prefer people with housekeeping experience.
    Some of the chores are outdoors so you must have suitable wet weather clothing and footwear.
