I have had regular au pairs in the past they were all great and fitted in really well. However, circumstances have changed DD has had a pretty awful time and really needs a more Granny figure than a big sister. Plus I don't need the same kind of help in the house.
I am up to speed with contracts etc, but what was the experience like?

There is a Grannyaupair website sorry can't remember the address and there was an article in The Times on Saturday in June.
Looking at the profiles they are late 50s early 60s raised their own families retired and want to travel a bit. They seem to want stay about 6months though guess this is less of a problem as they are likely to settle in faster.
Really wondered if anyone had tried it
