Hello everyone!

I am Simina, mother of Saffron, our lovely princess who is 10 years old (her birthday was on the 17th July).
We are a family of three, me, my partner - Stuart and our daughter, Saffron. We also have two lovely dogs called Billy (five years old), and Billy’s daughter, she’s called Biskit (she almost 4 months old now). Both are extremely friendly and love to be around people.

Both Stuart and I are police officers, so you will be well protected in our family!

Our family

We live in the area of Birmingham, in Quarry Bank near Dudley, which is about 15-20 minutes by train to Birmingham city centre. The train station is 10 minutes walk away from our house. Birmingham is UK’s second largest city, a very cosmopolitan place, where you can meet people from all over the world. There are lots of activities you can do, and places to visit.
Saffron is currently in Year 6 as of September. Next year she will start high school. She is a very funny child, who loves unicorns, fairies, everything magic and more then anything to play Fortnite on her Nintendo Switch. She goes to theatre classes on Saturdays and swimming on Fridays. She loves to dance, and role play and also loves make up and everything girly. She also loves to play Fortnite and Animal Crossings on her Nintendo Switch or Playstation.
On our days off we like going out and about, visiting places and to the cinema.

Our living situation

We live in a 200 years old house, which is full of character. We recently bought it and moved in and we love it! We have two big gardens with lots of flowers, trees and plants.
The house has 4 bedrooms, one of which (a double one) would be yours.
We’re within walking distance from Saltwells Woods Nature Reserve (amazingly beautiful place) and Merry Hill Shopping Centre (where you have lots of shops, bars, restaurants and cinemas).

Our region

The West Midlands comprises of the cities of Birmingham, Coventry, Wolverhampton and a lot of other smaller towns (like Dudley, next to where we live), which are all linked with one another, it’s a huge metropolitan area! Transport is really good so you can quickly move from one place to the other.
London, Manchester and Liverpool are a maximum of two hours away.

What we do in our free time

We like to travel, relax in our house, watch films, go to the cinema and walk the dogs.

Tasks, schedule and pocket money

I would like our au pair to be like a big sister for Saffron. We are both police officers, I work shifts: 2 earlies, 2 lates, and 2 nights, followed by 4 days off. My partner works in an office, in the Intelligence department, he works 3 earlies (7-15) and 3 lates (13-22) followed by 3 days off. My hours of work vary on each of those shifts. We have some days off together, and our pair would have plenty of free days as when one of us is at home she won’t be needed. This means at least 4 days off every week, as my partner’s and mine days off are sometimes the same and other times opposite. When our days off are opposite it means that you get full 7 consecutive days off! Sometimes we would need you to baby sit on an evening, if we plan to go out together or go to the cinema.
We would like our au pair to take Saffron to school, but mostly pick her up (school is 5 minutes walk from our house) and to play with her, sometimes help with homework.
We would only ask for light house work, which means keeping your room and the house tidy and sometimes vacuum, nothing more.
Our au pair will have her own double bedroom in our house, with own TV and wifi internet. Obviously we will buy everything our au pair would like to eat, etc.
We will pay £90 - £100 / week pocket money, depending on our work (we would pay more if, for example, we are needed at work for longer, as our job can be unpredictable at times).
We would need our au pair to start immediately, November 2021 - December 2021.
We would like her to be able to stay for 12 months at least (so there is more stability for Saffron), but of course we would understand if she wants to leave earlier. We would only require about one month notice.
We look forward to hearing from you! Xx
