Preferred stay length
I have an idea that might interest single mums. My 2 kids stay with me every second week. When they are with their dad their rooms at my place are empty, I'm paying for a 3 bedroom house and half the time I'm the only one in it.
My partner lives 2 hours north in the country. Each weekend one of us stays at the other's place, so he is usually over on alternate weekends.
I have a son 13, and a daughter, 11.
There must be other mums in a similar situation where your kids are only with you part time. If we lived in the same house and the kids stayed on differing alternate weeks, they could share a room but not both be in it at the same time! Plus we could afford to have a nicer bigger place!
Sure, there would be logistics over personal belongings and bedding, but surely that's solvable.
I need to live within walking distance of Tooronga Road between Malvern and High in Glen Iris / Malvern so that the kids can easily get between my place and their dad's, and get themselves to school.
If that sounds like a plan worth investigating, let me know and maybe we can find a place together!
I'm a great cook btw!
I don't have my own pets full time, but my partner has a beautiful farm dog that likes to visit, and my kids have a little Maltese Shi Tsu that I occasionally babysit.
