Who Knew You Could Meet A Sitter At A Speed Dating Event?

Always up for something different, along I trot to Australia's only Speed Dating-like event to meet professional Baby sitters.. yes that's right I said speed dating for mums..

Its speed dating for busy mums like me who are time poor & would like to meet professional baby sitters face to face before they actually look after your children.

Established by Mei Koon, HR & Marketing professional turned Mum, Mei runs the events in Sydney's suburbs of Bondi, North Sydney and Balmain.. Best of all you leave the event with a overall profile of the sitters details including resume, available times/days, asking rate & have the opportunity to speak with them directly to see if they will be a match for your family.

How refreshing compared to scanning Google for suggested names of Sitters wondering if they will turn up or how committed they are to the job? Have to say I was also very impressed that one of the sitters actually made it to the event following a minor car accident .... obviously shaken she braved it and came!!! Love the positive attitude and commitment to follow through which is exactly what I'm looking for. Well Done to Meet A Sitter for sourcing her to join their team!

If you are in need of a little extra hand.. be it for five hours or a few more be sure to check them out...

Its Beginning To Look Alot Like January!

Somebody please tell me where 2009 went. In the past 12 months Izac came along, we purchased two investment properties, moved house and ohhh and did I forget to mention there's the teeny tiny new business Allies Attic... quite possibly my second baby might I add..
With our first two markets under wrap we're so excited at the response and gearing up for our next Market Day at Mosman on February 13 at the Mosman Art Gallery & Community Centre. In the meantime we'll be releasing our 2010 Market Dates and can't wait to tell you where our next Allies Attic Market will be!
