  • Description


    Single mother, full time worker (7-4 pm) and my daughter is attending school from 8-4 pm. During the week, there is a clear routine. Breakfast 7-8 am and then tidy up. A light simple lunch at 12-1pm and then tidy up. Some activities until 5pm. We normally eat dinner 5-6pm and then tidy up. After 7pm, go for a walk/cycle or watch a movie. During the Covid, there is little opportunity to wonder far and wide but parks and picnics are good. My daughter will need everyday conversational and written study in French 3 times a week. Other activities include gardening, drawing, board games, cards, painting, singing, piano etc...

    The best fit would be a lady native French speaker unfortunately we cannot host any males. The following dates would be great in 2020 back to school...

    13th December

    I am a professional engineer and live with my daughter who is 14 years old. We are sociable and friendly, we have some outdoor interests namely walking but also like to be home from time to time relaxing. We like to invite family and friends over for an evening dinner, walks, lunch or drinks. We like to explore and have national trust membership. The latter is all limited due to Grandma being vulnerable during Covid.

    We do not smoke and prefer to host non smokers. We eat non veg and veg, we have meals in the evening together, normally we try something new with spices and different recipes. I am pleased to experiment and only encourage a healthy diet with fresh fruit and vegs. If you have any special dietary requirements please let me know as soon as we speak.

    We sometimes have 2 rabbits who live in the garden and need to be fed & fresh water daily then cleaned weekly, given cuddles often. Sometime we house sit a small dog and take him for walks. Please let me know if you have animal allergies.

    I am looking for a female native French/Italian speaking to care for an active 13 year old girl. If you are musical and can teach an instrument, and also have an interest in home improvement including shed painting and gardening.

    My daughter enjoys arts and crafts. We have a very simple back garden which could benefit from some maintenance during the day and landscaping. Lastly, an evening meal can be prepared and some salad.

    We are looking for someone to join our small family helping in the home, if the arrangement works well for both parties, this could become a long term hosting opportunity. However, we are pleased to host for a minimum period of 4 weeks if a short visit to the UK is preferred, so dates that would work have been identified and if you would like to stay for a longer period, we can discuss this during a skype call/whatsup video. Please share your number or skype ID.

    Driving is not essential but a good sense of humour is important. Haha!!

    Cooking is required, we like to experiment and will cook all types including Thai, Chinese and Indian cuisine with, of course some fast food outings including Chinese or fish and chips. Covid permitting

    If you have any allergies or medical requirements please let me know at the earliest opportunity. Also, considering coronavirus we have been shielding and will continue to be cautious, therefore if you have had contact with anyone showing symptoms and or confirmed to have the virus please let me know.

    We look forward to meeting you and creating some happy memories with you.....

    Additional placement opportunity with my mother, who is looking for female companion, who will be able to join her for breakfast and dinner. She is a sociable person and loves to chat. She can speak Hindi, French and a bit of Spanish and Italian. Are you looking for simple cleaning, gardening and catering? Could be a good opportunity to suit your needs? We would be looking at somebody staying for six months at least and DBS checks would need to be conducted. If you are looking for work during the week this is possible (9 - 5 pm) as long as you are able to return home by 5-6 pm in the evening to prepare meal Sunday to Thursday. Please do get in touch if you think this would meet your requirements and please email a CV and 2 recent employment references. If you already have a security check for vulnerable children and elderly please share, this should be at least within the past 3 months. (DBS)
