we're looking for a nanny to look after a 5 month old full time and do after school and holiday care for a 4 year old. we don't have a confirmed primary school place yet so can't confirm where the pick up will be from yet.

any advice as to where i should look (apart from gumtree) would be appreciated. i'd prefer not to use an agency.

Hello katieblirdsnest <contemplates how to reveal RL identity to katieblirdsnest without revealing it to the world before realising that profile should pretty much give it away>

No specific advice on nannies, although you could (probably unethically) think about trying to poach someone from your DD's nursery? If you have a good moan to the staff about how you're looking for a nanny but don't want to go through an agency, etc., etc., you might find that someone who's looking for a change approaches you. About the only staff who ever leave DS's nursery (other than to move abroad or to the other end of the country) go to be nannies.

think i may be able to guess! good idea, i'm approaching people from old nursery but a lot of them got nanny jobs when it went bust so i'm a bit behind for them but no harm in loudly discussing my woes at new nursery.

how are you and the kids?

OK -- we took a week off last week and went to York to be rained on there instead of here. And MrLemon is back for a week to ten days next weekend, which will be good. DD has around a dozen words now, even though they aren't generally intelligible to outsiders. And, best of all, I have just discovered a packet of three bourbon biscuits in my bag that came as part of a child's meal last week and I'd forgotten about... <brushes crumbs off keyboard>

We are in Earlsfield and have a nanny who we currently share with another family who are sadly moving away from the area. We are therefore looking for a new family to join us - if you would be interested in discussing let me know.
