Hello Dear Family,

It would be a pleasure to be of service to your family, assisting you with tasks such as cleaning, cooking, washing, shopping, commuting children to and from school and after school activities.
As a mother and grandmother, I understand how busy life can get, especially when children are still at home, attending school and participating in after school activities.
Let me alleviate the pressure and free up some quality time with your loved ones!

The skills and attributes I can offer you:

Cooking - Am a passionate cook and under my mother's instruction, cooked my first meal at the age of 8. Furthermore I have worked as a Cook in Fine Dining, Bistro, Cafe , Fast Food and A La Carte
Cleaning Commercial and Domestic _ have owned and operated my own cleaning business and cleaned executive homes
Organisational skills
Running Errands
Shopping and being frugal to ensure you get value and quality for your money
Receptionist answering phones, follow-up calls, mailing, scheduling appointments

Caring & Compassionate nature
Loyal and trustworthy
Love Children and Animals
Discreet and Professional

I pride myself in always respecting the privacy of others as that is something that matters a great deal to me as well.

A little bit more about my personal life:

Mother and Grandmother

Mother of 3 wonderful children ( all mothers say that :-) !! and its true
N......: (34) is the eldest, is married to JP and is the mother to 3 children: J..... (5) A..... (3) and baby ...... (1)
E.....: (31) is a Family and Relationships Counsellor and is living with her adopted dog Tobes and partner of 4 years Dan
B....... : (16) is my baby.... lol.... he would be so embarrassed if he heard me talk about him like that. He is living with his father fulltime and is adamant on becoming a Police Officer.
Toots: (16 in dog years) is our adopted dog. A Shi Tzu, pronounced (Shit Zoo) he is a great little dog with the most wicked under bite :-) He lives with B..... and loves to come for a ride on my scooter.

Things I love to do on days off and spare time:

Spending time with family including my Mother and brothers.
City Cat Hopping i.e. hopping on the City Cat at Hawthorne, disembarking at Sydney Street and cycling all the way to Southbank, exploring and discovering along the way.....
Botanical Gardens
Epicurean Garden
Queensland Art Gallery
Walking and cycling
Reading, Painting , Sculpting, Sewing, Gardening yaddah yaddah blah blah
At times...Nothing at all ;-)

Some fave movies : Mad Max the latest one with Charlize Theron, Into the Wild, Dare to be Wild , Little Miss Sunshine, pretty much anything uplifting with some suspense, lots of laughter and very little drama.

I am a self-taught artist and have show cased my works in one Exhibition only. I rarely socialize, yet am not anti-social.

Am respectful of nature and try my best to look after our earth by leaving behind the smallest carbon footprint possible.

If you are still awake, Congratulations!! And thanks for taking the time to read this.

Should you want to meet with me in person, I look forward to hearing from you.

With kind regards
p.s my name may be a little difficult to pronounce and it is rather long, please feel free to abbreviate :-)
