My wife passed away in February, and we as a family consist of me (42), my son (nearly 5) and daughter (2.5).
We have a 3 bedroom flat in Barnes (with two cats), I work full time, and I now my son has started school (after school clubs until 6pm M-T, 5pm Friday), whilst my daughter is in nursery (M-F, 8-6) it is time that I sought help.
I would like to find assistance with things such as: school and nursery pickups on occasion, preparation of the odd meal, laundry and shopping and perhaps occasional weekly & weekend babysitting so that I may have some time for myself for whatever exercise/social one may.
I do not know if an au-pair is the solution, or a shared nanny etc. and of course would look for some consistency for the sake of my children.
Any advice or recommendations is much appreciate.
