Hi I am 38 years old and live with my 3 children in Alford Aberdeenshire, with our Husky Nessa. My partner work away and only comes home 44 days a year.
I work and I am looking for a volunteer to help with caring for my children.
We have previously had au pairs for the last 6 years but the kids are older now and generally I need more help around the house and the dog needs a friend who likes long walks in the countryside.
We live just on the edge of the cairngorms so if you like the mountains, castles and forests then you will love it here.
You would have your own bedroom and access to the family bathroom. Wifi and even happy to give you a mobile that I already have a contract for au pairs.
If you are super handy and can do things like painting or build decking then I am happy to pay for this work. I have lots of bits that need doing :)
I am happy to cook for everyone, but also if you have a passion for food you are welcome to cook.
Babysitting / child care
Help in the house
Happy to tell you all about Scotland. Point you in the right direction and make you one of the family. We often travel between Aberdeen and Glasgow to stay at my mothers farm where you are welcome to come with us.
During the winter we travel a lot to the local ski slope, if you fancy having a ski or a snowboard with us.
Help after school for kids in the house. Age 8/9/13 self-sufficient just not old enough to be left alone yet.
Walk Nessa the Husky.
