A few weeks later, I found a job looking after two children in a Chelsea townhouse. I was thrilled but quickly realised that, alongside my nannying duties, I was also a prize. They are just young girls in their 20s. Perhaps things were exacerbated by working for parents who were desperately trying to get their daughter into a prestigious school.
T hey were also tight. I had known it would be hard work, but hoped for some kickbacks. Instead, I found myself scolded for boiling pans of water on the gas hob, rather than using the kettle. Other nannies for the super rich have had similar experiences. My job, essentially, was to help them forget they had kids. That said, the dad also liked it when I wore a bikini. But if they are too interested, that can be a bad sign. A nanny can be a status symbol.

I n hindsight, it seems miraculous that I lasted six months before leaving in the wake of a row about my refusal to constantly work overtime without notice. I found a nice, sensible family to nanny for; no pretending to love opera, no country house and no SW1 postcode.
