    Description

    Hi,

    My name is Els and I'm a 41-year old single mom with two children: Eliana of 14 and Brendo of 12. In September I will start my second year in highschool, which means I will be very busy sometimes with schoolwork, with internship, but also just being in school. There are days we have to be there until 18h and then it gets hard to get everything organized.
    I do have my mother to help me out a little bit, but she is a very busy woman who likes to take the time for herself, what I totally understand.
    So I want to give it a try to see if any of you Workawayers would like to come with us for like a trimester. If things work out, we could see if we can make it any longer.
    Basically I would like someone who helps us inthe morning with breakfast and cleaning up after we left the house and help with tidying up and some general housekeeping tasks. At the end of the year I will have to do an internship for 9 weeks and seen the fact that I'm studying to be a nurse, I could have early shifts, late shifts and probably a few weekend shifts. That is for sure a time that I could use some help...
    There will be plenty of time to move around and enjoy your stay with us. We can introduce you to some people here and hang out with you in theweekends or sometimes evenings. If I don't have to clean up anymore, I would have some time left to go out and enjoy the time together.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We could help you in getting to learn the language, seen the fact that Dutch is not a widely known language. We could also introduce you to our community, which is quiet, but very rich in sports, youth clubs and a lot of events. I like singing, my daughter likes to draw and paint, but also singing and dancing and acting. My son is a football player and he wants to be a Youtube star 😊

    There are a few house projects that I would like to get done, so maybe if we have the time and feel like it, we can get this done. It's actually painting a few rooms and redecorating my daughter's bedroom.
