  • Description


    Hello, I’m about to embark on 10 weeks as a solo father of a wonderful 2 year old girl, soon my wife will go overseas To spend time with her father who is not doing too well and I am quite daunted by the idea of fathering by myself, so I’m hoping to find someone who is able to help out while my wife is away... it is important that you have experience with children however I don’t expect to find a qualified nanny, just someone who can lighten the load for me. You will have your own room and bathroom and all meals provided :)

    I basically need someone who can lighten the load with domestic duties while I take care of my 2 year old daughter. Doing simple things like having a shower or doing the laundry is very difficult while supervising a toddler on my own. So it would be a mix of child minding (while I am in the house) and domestic chores to
    Lighten the load for me.

    Note: at no time will I leave you with my daughter while I am not in the house/ shouting distance of the house
