We live in a gorgeous sea side village of Barwon Heads, about 20 min from Geelong and 1.2hrs from Melbourne in Australia. Hamish is 10 yrs old and Estelle is 7 yrs old. My husband Brad works away about 80% of the time and I work from home as a planner/lawyer mostly. My work load is increasing and I need help with the kids and general house duties. We have a great house with pool and live near the beach and River. We have x2 dogs and x2 chooks. The dogs loved to be walked. Both the kids do tennis and ballet plus swimming. It's always busy but fun. We go to Melb to see shows from time to time and love culture. We would be particularly interested in a French speaking person sobthe kids can develop French speaking skills.
There is a bus stop right near our house which goes directly to Gellong and the kids school. We have bikes so plenty of great bike tracks around. Would love to hear from you if you like a Coastal but busy life style. Thanks Shelly.
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
Learn allot about our region and life in a coastal town. There is a TAFE college and Deakin University close by too. Do loads of sport with the kids too. As we live near the beach they could learn surfing and stand up paddle boarding.
I need help getting the kids ready for school including lunches, house duties ie cleaning and helping prepare some night meals. Feeding of the chooks and wild birds too. The dogs also need to be walked each day if possible. The kids will need help with homework each day including piano for Estelle. I can order shopping for home delivery so no big shopping needed.
Speaking to the kids and me in French would be fun for language development. We love biking so biking to cafes for breaky in the weekends too!
