Ive had 4 german girls 1 of whom was like a Norland nanny and is back visiting us at the moment............another one was pretty good 2 but the other 2 were hopeless and a hungarian girl who was very spoilt and the world's worst driver!

Its a lottery............I would look at the background.........our best was form a hard working bavarian farmong family with loads of brothers and sisters and neices and nephews. Very used to mucking in.
