    With my husband working and coaching, I am often home on my own with the children. As my shifts are by the hour in the morning and evening we are looking for someone that is good with children and happy to clean up after them and put them to bed.
    As we are both Australian we have no family to rely on. We have been living in Ireland for almost 10 years and love the area we are in in Co. Wicklow.
