I am a single working mother to five lovely children, 4 are full time here in Luxembourg ( age19, 10, 8 and 2). We also have two small dogs, one of whom is a blind rescue who we adopted in 2021z I hold down a demanding full time job but also sing and I play several instruments and I regularly perform. We moved to Luxembourg in 2019 from the Channel Island of Guernsey and are located in a beautiful area, also with great public transport links to the city (20 mins by bus). We speak English at home so this could be a great opportunity to improve English skills without leaving continental Europe.
I really am just looking for someone to be an extra pair of hands, spending a bit of time with the children and helping with the housework and pets, lots of free time to explore. Occasionally I am looking for more a house sitter to look after our dog whilst away.
Please check my calendar tab before contacting me - I keep it up to date :-)

Just looking for a little help! Someone to be an extra pair of hands in the morning and evening as I get myself ready for work, and the children ready for school/nursery, and help with our pets, like taking the dogs for a walk. Help in the garden is welcome for those who like to be outdoors.
I am working all day Monday - Friday, so there is plenty of time to explore Luxembourg
Private room. Private bathroom. All meals are included, although I work full time, so it is a "help yourself to lunch" kind of arrangement, with taking turns for evening meals.
What else ...
In time off you can walk in the forest that neighbours our house, or take a bus to the cosmopolitan Luxembourg City. You could take a train to neighbouring Germany or France too!
