I am a journalist who now sells antiques! I was unexpectedly alone with my daughter so dearly need some time to build a new business. My daughter is an only child and gets quite lonely so would benefit from a new person in her life who has time to read, learn, eat and play with her. it would be great if you could teach her french or another widely used European language! Because of our circumstances, I would prefer a female guest. We have a cat called Misty.
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
They would live in a beautiful medieval Dorset village near Chesil Beach, in a thatched cottage with a quiet mother and daughter. They would benefit from the most stunning nature and scenery in Britain. They would be able to improve their English skills, have full access to the internet and a large library, eat good food, meet interesting people and get to hang out with a delightful little girl.
Just some general household help plus light cooking plus childcare for my 6 year old girl and kitten care for Misty. Hoovering, some washing, light cleaning, preparation of some meals with my help, occasional childcare to be arranged between us. I would find it easier if you had fairly good English, so that you can communicate with us fairly well. Perhaps some light gardening. Nothing too strenuous!
Your own double room in our 3 bedroomed house. Full use of two bathrooms, kitchen and a garden. Freedom to join in with our small family at night, or have peace in your room. Unlimited internet access
You can eat with us whenever you would like although if you want to eat alone sometimes that is fine. You can add your ideas to the repertoire for the week and suggest new recipes. You are welcome to cook for yourself but it would be nice for us all to eat and cook together at supper time, and at the weekend. I am a pescatarian but my daughter eats meat.
You are free to do what you want on your time off. There is so much nature to see and some excellent walks. There are buses that run to the main towns but it is a rural place. If you have a full driving licence I could get you insured on my vehicle. I would expect no smoking in or too near to the house, and relative quiet from 8pm - 8am.
