The au-pair will not have her own bathroom, but washbasin in own, big room, overlooking our large garden. We are looking for someone who is prepared to OCCASIONALLY work at weekends, as this is a farming household, where the father does not have any regular time off at any weekends from ca. April to October, so it would be nice to sometimes have someone else to help/go on trips together with for a day at the weekend. The au-pair would then have a day off within the week instead, or a 3 day weekend another time, and all within the weekly 25 hours, of course, and accomodating prior arrangements by the au-pair. Au pair mother has been an au-pair herself ca. 25 years ago and therefore knows about some issues; hopes to give somebody else a good experience of being an au-pair! Last, but not least: We may not live in a town near London, but it is only one hour on the train to Edinburgh, which is an exciting city as well :-)!
