  • Description


    I live in South London with my daughter. I am an artist and my daughter who is 10 years old is at primary school. I have been hosting for 2 years. I invite workawayers to stay for one month at a time. At the moment I am looking for someone for 3/4 weeks in June The work will be school picks ups (20 min walk) babysitting, gardening, cooking and some general help around the house when needed. My daughter loves art and would love a WW who likes arts and crafts too. We have an art room in the house.
    We live in a lovely friendly neighbourhood with shops, bars , swimming pool , good transport links and parks within walking distance. Central London is easy to get to on public transport.

    There is loads to see in London in your spare time. I have lived in London for over 30 years and happy to show you around and give you advice on the best places to visit, particularly museums , galleries, and places of culture. There is something for everyone in London. London is expensive but there are lots of things to do for free.

    I am looking for general help around the house , school pick ups in the term time (20 min walk) some babysitting, cooking , and gardening (in the spring and summer)
    This would suit someone who likes art and crafts and enjoys being with children. Daisy is 10 years old, very independent and loves art and playing games. At the moment I am looking for a girl workawayer as she is a little bit shy of boys , hopefully that will change soon.

  • Accommodation


    We live in a large 3 bedroom house with a garden. You would have your own double bedroom and WC, with a shared bathroom. I would ask you to help yourself to breakfast and lunch and we would try and eat together in the evening. We like healthy food , grow some vegetables in the garden and bake bread regularly. I would ask for 20/25 hours a weeks. I am flexible about how we work this out to suit everybody. Cooking would be a bonus, and can be included in your hours. I love cooking but don't have enough time for it!
