    How on earth you manage that I have no idea! I take my DS to work maybe a few times a year when he is unwell or pupil free day and by the end of the day I am a nervous wreck.

    Haha. I run a public swimming pool, so it isn't always go, go, go but it can get busy and keeping an eye on the younger two can be tricky.

    It's fun though, there are loads of people for the kids to talk to, play with. We hang out there as a family on the weekends which is nice but just means we aren't home much.

    I can imagine! Have you got a cleaner?

    I would think in a situation like yours some kind of nanny might be good? Wo can help with housework and food prep?

    And this is how sad I am, I actually considered doing lite n easy to get the food delivered despite being a healthy weight. Lol.

    I used a cleaner when the pool was open, yes. It opens again in 6 weeks and she is no longer doing it. A nanny/housekeeper/cook would be awesome! That combo sounds exxy though!

    That's a good idea. I wonder if people out here read Gumtree? Small town!

    I have many friends who have nannies and all of the cook and clean (not bathrooms though). My sil has a live in nanny as they run there own business. She advertises on Gumtree.

    Could you put up a flyer for a cook/cleaner/nanny at the pool?

    I forgot to say she has had three over the past 3years as all of them have been backpackers (all have been from England and are teachers) and obviously can't stay for long periods of time but this really works for her.

    Yep, I will ask around at the pool once we reopen.

    We do have some backpackers that come out this way so it could be a good option
