Looking for a housekeeper?
My children are now grown and I am no longer needing my housekeeper full time. Nombini has been with me for over 18 years, so If you are looking for someone who is loving, loyal, and just a wonderful kind person, then please let me know if you would like Nombini to help clean and look after children. 
Please contact me, Helen on 073 387 5018
