Hi :) I am a single mum living 12km outside of Galway city in the West of Ireland in a village called Furbo.
It's a beautiful place, a ten minutes walk from the sea. I have a little girl, Síofra who will turned four in October. I also have two older children. Amber is 18yrs and just started studying Beauty Therapy and Naoise is 22yrs and is in college studying music/Drumming.
We love animals and have two cats and two very friendly dogs.
I work from home as a photographer and artist. I teach kids art classes on Wednesdays from our house which is great fun. Our house is quite big, colour-full and relaxed. We love listening to music, working on art projects and eating good, mostly vegetarian food. We have wifi. We have a huge, pretty untamed as yet garden where I grow some veg.
Ideally I would someone who would like to come and spend a few months with us and become part of the family and a friend to Síofra. At the moment we have a wonderful Italian lady who leaves in December after five fun months....we will really miss her! x
If you would like to experience life in Ireland in a homely relaxed atmosphere please send me a message :)

I live in the Gaeltacht, an Irish speaking area of Ireland. There is a very active Irish music scene here also.
I need some help with housework and minding Síofra while I work from home. She is great fun and loves to play and be in the garden. I am looking for someone who would enjoy watching her and being her friend.
Looking forward to hearing from you :) Vanessa
