  • Description


    I am a painter living with my little son (5 years old) and our beautiful English Setter in lovely Upper Swainswick (just outside Bath). I have recently broken an ankle and need help with taking my son down to school (with the dog) and picking him up in the afternoon. School is a 5' walk away. In the afternoon, sometimes (mostly weekends), I'd also need a bit of dog walking.

    Bath is gorgeous; countryside around it too! Right next to Bristol. Plenty to see around. We speak English & Portuguese at home. My son is a lovely boy that has an Incredible vocabulary for his age & loves to chat! We are in the country but right next to Bath.

    Help needed with my 5 years old son, walking him & the dog to school. A 5 minutes walk away. Afternoon pick up from school (3pm). Some dog walking in the afternoon or weekends if around would be very helpful.

    I speak English, Portuguese and Spanish. My son was born in England and speaks English. We are very keen on learning/improving Spanish or French and any Brazilian Portuguese speakers would be a plus.
