    Your main tasks will be helping me in and arround the house.

    things like clean the kitchen, vacuum clean or tidy up, laundry, cats food &toilet and take care of the garden will be one of your tasks.
    sometimes also playing with the baby or looking after him to have some free minutes would be great!
    Further more you would accompany me sometimes to grocery shopping.
    You totally should like cats as they love being pet and get some entertainment and attention from you :-)

    arround the house theres also diffrent things to do.
    we are starting our own vegetabel garden this year and it takes time to look after it. so we are happy if someone help us with it.
