I am a single mother of 3 amazing daughter's - who are 5, 4 & 4
We previously hosted workaways on an au pair style basis, and had a spare room set up and expected them to do a few hours of childcare a day
However, we've now moved to a beautiful island in Orkney, and I wondered if people might want an excuse to visit.
There is no longer a spare room, but there is a very comfortable sofa that is the same depth as a single bed) in a room with good black out curtains.
We'd be happy to host someone for a week or two, in exchange for some help in the garden, doing some redecorating/ organising or with a little bit of housework. The girls always enjoyed having someone different to spend time with when last we hosted workaways.
Babysitting and creative play
Help around the house
My daughters are awesome- I guarantee you will learn something new everyday. We are located on Westray, an island in Orkney. It is stunningly beautiful. There are amazing beaches and puffins.
You can use my bicycle if you want to explore the island.
We've just moved house. So help with housework eg. Washing clothes or dishes would be good.
Or helping to create a vegetable garden.
Most of all, i'd quite like help to paint some rooms. I've got a vision for my house, but not time to make it a reality.
You will be given breakfast from a selection or cereals and have dinner with the family. (You will need to arrange your own lunch/ snacks)
You will be sleeping on a sofa, that is very comfortable in a room with blackout curtains
It will be 'your space' after 7pm.
To get to Westray, you can get a boat from Kirkwall and we will of course collect you at the ferry terminal.
