Living in london (london)
Bessie - 9 - girl
Lily - 11 - girl
Hugo - 14 - boy

Two parent family
Visiting family/friends, working on our allotment, playing in the park, visiting museums, seeing movies, walking, visiting historical places. We have a demanding and irregular work schedule, but enjoy as much family life as we can. Hugo plays guitar very well and enjoys computer games and building models; Lily and Bessie learn piano; Hugo and Lily both love playing football, Bessie loves playing outdoors, imaginative play, making things, cooking, dressing up and wearing make up (!); Lily and Bessie love playing make-believe together. They all love watching TV, playing on their DS/computer, but we try to limit this! We have 2 beautiful cats.

We have 3 lively children with strong delightful personalities, energy and imagination, aged 14, 11 and 9. They need somebody confident, energetic and fun, but able to be firm, reliable and caring. Our two oldest are now at secondary school and so are fairly independent, and our youngest is at the local primary school - 5 minutes walk. Our current au pair has been perfecting his (!) language skills and would now like to try a different job in another city, and our last au pair was with us for a year before she left for her new job as a personal trainer! (and before that our previous au pair was with us for 3 years). We would love it if our new au pair could be in touch with our previous au pairs so that they can share experience of the children and our routines. We live in London in an area with easy access to all that London can offer. We prefer someone slightly older and with their own independence and confidence. As the children are now a bit older we would also like someone who is a home-help/au pair. I am happy to send more photos and chat about anything. We would like someone to be with us for a year or more if possible.
