I'm a solo mama to two wild little girls, Poppy-5 and Gracie-3 who are with me full time. We live in a beautiful little slice of heaven on a peninsular on the west coast of Scotland!
Poppy is very sensitive, and takes a little time to come out of her shell around new people. She is so sweet and kind, loves to dance and dress up.
Gracie is wild and loves to adventure, she is hilarious and full of energy!
I'm Angie, a baker in a local cafe, a kids yoga teacher and practising Reflexologist alongside a couple of other holistic healing concepts. I work full time and then some, to try and support the buildings of our dream future. We love to sing and create, and i just adore this wild and creative life with my little girls.
The girls are at nursery from 9am until 3pm every day, so your daytimes will be your own. Our helpers will need to take the girls to nursery, and do a few nights a week of childcare while I work, get a chance to catch up with friends and rehearse with my band. Any helping hands will need to be able to take care of P and G over dinner and bedtime and have experience of living in a house with kids. You'll need to understand the basic day to day of life with kids and help with the running of the house.
Cuidado de niños y juegos creativos
You will be welcomed into our very creative home. We are right by the sea, and regularly swim in the sea and loch's which are just so beautiful!
I craft a few things mostly on commission, and we are a very creative family with lots of art materials! i would be most happy to share with you some heritage craft skills like needle and wet felting, embroidery, crochet, soap, bathbomb, candle making! You'll gain lots of experience with young kids, and outdoor play. I am an avid forager and can show you how to identify and prepare lots of interesting wild edibles.
If historic buildings are more your thing, there are lots of interesting castles, ruins, and stone circles in driving distance. The surrounding landscapes are so amazing to explore!
You'll have loads of free time to work locally, explore, meet wonderful people, relax, read cool books and enjoy the beautiful west coast of Scotland!

I'm pretty limited in terms of childcare/backup, and we would love to welcome someone into our home to just hang out and play with the girls while I am working. They are good fun and easy to be around. However, you will also need to be able to handle morning and evening routines, and stay on top of mess and the running of the house etc while you are looking after the girls. They are bundles of fun, they love creating, dressing up and adventuring, but we need someone assertive and experienced with kids, who is a good bit of fun! You'll have a lot of free time, particularly during the day, and while you are so welcome as part of the family for your stay, it would be great to have someone who is confident in getting out and exploring the area and meeting the cool people. You are welcome to use my car but if you had your own that would be great.
Este anfitrión ofrece intercambio de idiomas
We would particularly love the opportunity to learn more Spanish as both me and Gracie are trying to learn the basics.
You'll have your own bedroom, and share space in our home which comprises 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living/dining, kitchen, veg garden and enclosed garden to the back with outdoor fire bath. There is wifi in the house and a landline phone, mobile signal is temperamental! Parking in front of house, right on the sea and close to many glorious freshwater loch's. The arrangement will include wholesome food and accommodation, but you are most welcome to have your own cupboards and fridge/freezer space, and use the washer and drier for your own laundry.
There is a bus which runs to/from neighbouring seaside town of Oban, and the smaller town in the other direction of Lochgilphead. Your own transport and experience of living somewhere with a slower pace of life would be ideal as we are fairly rural.
Our house is filled with music, often noisy, and hopefully lots of laughter! We are very laid back, but I would like someone with a gentle, nurturing nature to hang out with my gorgeous girls.
