The best babysitting service in the world

Two weeks ago, a call with my Mum:

Mum: We are thinking of coming over in May, would that be OK?
Me: Of course, we'd love to see you
Mum: Which dates would work best for you?
Me: I am racing on 10th May and it would be quite useful to have someone to babysit Eve when we are both in a boat so our rowing coach doesn't have to do it again.
Mum: Perfect. See you then.

Inter-continental babysitting. Brilliant!

Love the Granny babysitting service. Where would we be without them! Does she want to come to Bosnia at all?

I'm sure we could work something out... Good luck with the race.

Tell her she's welcome here any time. In fact we could make saturday night a regular if she wants? MH

Now Mum is back in the UK, may I suggest she replies to you directly with her hourly rates?!
