Hi I am a lady in my mid thirties who recently had a gorgeous happy little girl who is now 6 months old and almost crawling! I am diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis which greatly affects my mobility but I am still able to move around the house with a stick and need help with my mobility scooter when I go out. I am looking for a PA who can help me around the home whilst my husband is at work. I love cooking traditional Filipino food, as it reminds me of home. I also enjoy going to the gym but like most new mums I have not been able to get there very often since having my baby. Your support could really make a difference to me. My diagnosis means that I can struggle to complete day to day tasks and tire easily. I really need to find a PA who can assist me, as well as helping me care for my little girl. Could you see yourself keeping a 6 month old entertained whilst I have a rest or help me in the kitchen to cook a nice family meal? Or perhaps push my baby in a pushchair so that we can go for a walk to the park (I will use my mobility scooter and would need help taking it out and unfolding it). I would love to hear from you if this type of work interests you.
