  • Description


    Hi there my name is Adina and my husband Richard is a farmer. He works on a sheep and beef farm where we live and is a keen hunter. I work full time at a vet clinic ( retail) half an hour drive from where we live.
    We have two small children 3 and 2 that spend too much time at day care and we are looking for someone to look after our household and pick the kids up from daycare earlier during the week days. If this sounds like you get in touch with me I’m very keen for some help

    I have a spear room in my house that currently doesn’t have an office desk but that can be arranged I have great internet I stream movies with no problem but I don’t work on a computer at home so I can’t tell how great it is, for my everyday needs it is perfect no problem at all. It’s peaceful and quite out here on the farm but we do have a few dogs that bark sometimes and lots of sheep around that might make some noise sometimes
