Hi, my name is Naomi, I'm offering my help to help families with young children. I will help you with the general tidying up or ironing. I live in Lybster. I can come at anytime. I will charge 6.20 an hour. I don't drive so I can't do anyone outside of the village. I won't work on Friday Mornings or Friday afternoons between 1pm and 3 Pm but after that I will. Saturday and Sundays I don't work.
But my main aim is to help families with young children an if they wanted to spend a bit of time with them my service allows them to do so. Please do not hesitate to get in touch via here or a pm thanks Chocolate-Chip:D

do you have any training for this kind of work ?

do you have a disclosure allowing you to work with young families ?

what you're offering sounds similar to Home Start and Sure Start which are both free to families needing help.

but hey ho, good luck !

Are you a registered help and are you open to a police check, because i doubt any respectable family is going to let a complete stranger enter the house and look after the house and children.

hey leave the poor girl alone all she is simply trying to do is take a load off people that maybe dont have the time or not well enough, and earning a bit of extra cash at the same time. at no point did she say to look after the peoples kids. she said ironing and light housework. i do this myself and the people i work for are very grateful for the extra bit of help around the home its also nice for them to just have somebody different to talk to i always have a coffee and a chat with the people i work for and if hey need a trip to the shops i always offer. im sure this is all naomi is doing give her a break. vicky

15-Jul-10, 20:31
I was only trying to make sense of her working hours as I thought it would help those that are wanting her help!
It would be good to get help during the holidays...but im too far away:(
And I didnt realise what I actually manage to do while Lauren is at nursery...as for ironing there is lots and lots:lol:
It would be like having a housework fairy... im told they exist but havent seen one yet!

Hey come on, a young girl is trying to provide a service and make some money, how many people do you know are prepared to do cleaning and ironing so that parents can spend some time with their children...What a shallow lot you are, just because you wont work then you shoudnt try and stop others from earning a decent living.
As for a Nigerian and should I give you my bank details isnt that a bit racist Tiger? And you dare condemn me for having opions on Gays!!! Shame on you and leave the poor girl alone!!!

My thoughts exactly leave the poor girl alone, at least she's trying, not like some that just hang around getting drunk and abusing drugs all at the expense of the tax payer. As for the racist remarks I thought we had moved out of the dark ages. If anyone doe's not like anyone from outside the area why dont you go live in one of these foreign places and tell the locals what you think.

Obviously this went way over the heads of everyone jumping on the racist bandwagon.
Nice to see someone trying to better themselves though. I'm sure the original poster will be declaring all proceeds from this correctly?

If you are planning on making a proper go of this you really need to do some research into declaring earnings and perhaps even becoming self employed (not sure on the exact rules myself).
At this stage I think you should just be using the org to get an idea of demand.

It may not have been the best placed joke ever but in context definitely not racist.

Eta: Just remembered a recent thread by the OP who was trying to sell a train ticket for more than she paid for it and more than anyone booking the ticket would pay. Maybe the comparison is not that far from the truth (tongue in cheek before anyone gets on the defensive).

Aye, your good. Get the idiots who are supporting you to leave their bank account details, mothers maiden name and pets name to speed up the process for you. Remember to inform Inland Revenue of your plans.

of course they will be, do you think she just plucked the figure 6.20 out of thin air ?
it's all been costed with deductions/insurance etc taken into account

sheesh :roll: honestly !

Well considering she originally posted this on the "Job Vacancies" section where there is a sticky stating no job wanted ads and also common sense would dictate that is not the best place to start advertising a business it appears completely possible to me that 6.20 was plucked out of thin air. I could be wrong.
Either way I WAS trying to be helpful :D

Judging by the ammount of saps on here she'll do very well.

19-Jul-10, 20:04
dont mean to be nasty but i really do not think anyone is going to want this not only are u selling yourself at over the minimum wage but u also will not leave lybster so there fore that does not give u alot of opportunity to even start a business, plus another thing is there are help for families in wick and thurso which is free of charge, maybe you should try weekend work..... that may be your only option as the sure start does not do weekends either, plus one more thing people is going to have plenty of money to employ you its not like you are a registered childminder where the goverment helps with costs for working families!

Again im not being nasty, just honest.

or to be more subtle:

Put Up or Shut Up

There is another person offering similar services, washing, ironing, dog walking and they have not been slated!
Just because CC offered her services primarily to families though nothing she has offered to do is linked to the childrens care she has been slated.
Why?
Ps people doing ironing or domestic duties can and do charge more than 6.20 ph.

Oh
And
Home start does not do household chores.

smiles
19-Jul-10, 21:01
well she aint going to get any business ..... be realistic you are clearly all deluded! lets be serious lybster has got a real big population hasnt it!
And sure start , pultney town peoples project i believe DO infact help with domestic duties!
So You all get with the REAL world you clearly are not!

smiles
19-Jul-10, 21:02
OH but PPP do house hold cores .....FACT
it is free of charge also a FACT

Dadie
19-Jul-10, 21:07
How many households in Lybster have both parents working all day?
Or single parents out working?
Or proffessional couples not wanting to do the housework?
I know of at least 1 couple that get their ironing done for them in the Lybster area... so there is some people there that may use these type of services... ok its not going to be a fulltime job...

smiles
19-Jul-10, 21:14
yes and how many are unemployed?

and how many have that good a job that they could afford this??

Yes thats what i thought....not many....obviously!;)

Dadie
19-Jul-10, 21:24
How many people who need help dont meet the PPP or home help criteria?
And could do with help for a couple of hours a week?

smiles
19-Jul-10, 21:30
and how many people live in lybster.... do u fit CC criteria??

GET REAL PEOPLE!!

Dadie
19-Jul-10, 21:42
No I dont live in her catchment area... but if I did I would.
Heck if I didnt have so much washing and ironing of my own I would consider taking in some as it seems to bring in some well needed pocketmoney for luxuries!

Moira
19-Jul-10, 22:04
dont mean to be nasty but ....
<SNIP>

Again im not being nasty, just honest.

You've twice mentioned "nasty". Why are you so much bothered? Have you reported your concerns to the Admin of this Site?

I hate ironing and don't qualify for the PPP criteria. Am I angry? - No. Disappointed? - Yes. :)
