Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Hello! The time period is totally flexible. I had to tick a box.
I think working Monday-Thursday would be enough. Just knowing you are around is enough on the other days.
You would look after me in a mild and general sense. I am tired of living alone.
My first photo was taken at Christmas, so in recent times. I am pretty fit but awful at looking after the house and myself. I also miss conversation. Also simple, caring things such as, "You can’t go out looking like that”.
I have many friends but times are difficult. I have had two vaccinations plus a booster.
Both my daughters are married and work abroad. I have 3 grandchildren (2-5 years old) and I love to travel around the world (but it’s no fun alone). Covid has been a problem. I am not rich but comfortably off. I live alone in a small 3 bedroomed detached house after losing my wonderful wife to cancer. Please note, it’s a small and open plan house, so difficult to avoid me. After set up costs (clothes, phone and so on) I would expect to pay about £400 per month. You would have no costs whilst with me but I assume you will want to go out.
I have an old and very friendly dog (Alfie) who prefers females. The poor thing is stuck with me.
I live on the edge of town (Northampton) and walk around the fields every day.
I play golf and bridge once a week. I am hopeless at both but my friends and I laugh a lot. The one game I could play properly is rugby. Those days are over.
I love children. Recently, in Dar Es Saaam (Tanzania) I was asked to put on a short magic show for 5 year olds. A bit young for me but it was great fun and one of them was my grandson.
I am a retired headteacher and would be fully supportive of any educational activities you may wish to follow. I do not want you to feel stuck indoors. I would also be keen for you to go out and socialise. I am flexible. A bedroom, food and alcohol will be provided. I have Sky, Netflix and Disney+.. They are available on a TV in your room. Warning: my youngest daughter has lots of clothes in there. Reorganisation/energy required!
I am extremely honest and loyal.
If, for some reason, you were unhappy, I would pay for your fare back home. The reason I put 4-6 months is that I don’t want anybody to feel trapped. However, there is no reason why it could not be longer.
I have a sore neck that gives me headaches and makes me want to sleep when, in reality, I have energy. Annoying for me.
