I am an energetic, young minded fifty two year old. I am single and have no children but am fortunate to have three nephews, a niece and three godchildren to provide the fun in my life and keep me young! I love the countryside and spend a lot of my leisure time out walking or at the beach. I enjoy horse riding and skiing, so squeeze in holidays for those whenever I can afford it. Music is my passion: I sing in a church choir and a cathedral relief choir and play the piano (badly!). I have given singing and piano lessons to child beginners and have run school choirs and music groups. Choral music is my first love, but I also enjoy opera and musicals; I have seen Les Mis about twenty times!
I left school (and home) at eighteen to work as a live in mother's help. On the strength of a reference from that job I moved on to other nannying positions. I have over twenty five years experience as a nanny to children of all ages, from new born to eighteen. Aged forty I went to uni to study Primary Education and was a class teacher for five years. In order to look after my mother at the end of her life I left teaching and took a position as a houseparent in a boarding school. After my mother's passing, the shift patterns of this employment allowed me to return to my real love, nannying for young children: in September 2015 I started looking after a newborn baby boy for one day a week. He is now attending nursery. I am currently nannying for two delightful little boys (aged 6 and 8) after school on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays and some Saturdays; on Tuesdays and Wednesdays I look after two girls aged 8 and 11.

I now have sufficient hours to keep me busy during term time, but could be available to another family/ families during school holidays. I am also free most Saturday evenings for one off or regular babysitting.
