    looking for help :)
    My name is Summer i’m 26. I am English and I have lived in France for 16 yeas. I have 2 beautiful daughters: Rosabella who is 8 years old and Lilia 3 year old. We are a Happy little family living in the lovely city of Bordeaux. Bordeaux is on the "Liste du patrimoine mondiale UNESCO".
    I'm a happy young student mum who loves meeting new people, exchanging of cultures and making new friends. I'm gonna be very busy starting September. My 8 year old loves meeting and playing with new people who have come to stay with us. She is creative and loves dancing and singing and will keep you entertained :) Lilia is usually happy :-) , loves playing with people and loves being cuddled .
    Im still in contact with several of my ex -workerwayers who have become long distance friends. I know how enjoyable such an experience can be.

    We are looking for a happy fun person who likes to play with children and can help us in the apartment with the cooking and cleaning and taking Rosabella to school (5 mins along the road).
    I would love to show you around Bordeaux and introduce you to all its history at weekends when im not so busy. Nevertheless the historic heart of Bordeaux is easily accesable from my apartment, 15mins on the tram and it is a truly beautiful city and Im happy to help you plan outings and advise you about Bordeaux. I was born in the UK and can share much about British culture as well as french culture as ive lived in several locations in France. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    The apartment is within 15 minutes of the heart of Bordeaux by bus or tram where you will find art galleries, museums, architecture, festivals, shopping and culture. There is a local library very close to the apartment. Good internet in the apartment but no TV. I speak fluent French and English and am happy to converse in either. My older child uses both languages and I am always up for a good chat :) in french or english

    I'm looking for a woman. You need to really like children and enjoy spending time with them. It helps if you like playing games and think you will beable to entertain my dynamic, demanding 7 year old daughter when she isn't at school. She loves being taken to play on swings and slides. I hope we will be able to shate the cooking together. There is also cleaning and general household chores to do. Our's is a busy household and i am not the best planner, so it is good if you can help with that.
