    Beschreibung

    I am a College Lecturer in my early sixties and I also work at the British Museum as a Tour guide. I live in Chesham, Buckinghamshire, UK. I am friendly and patient, and able to give clear tasks. I value and respect the company of others, and I wish to welcome people into my living situation. I have two children (both boys -14 and 21) who live with their mother (my erstwhile wife) in the next town from me. At present I am in rented accommodation, and have just bought a place of my own very near by. A lean-to needs to be built to the rear of the new house - hence the 'creative carpentry/building project'.....

    I am seeking people to help me with:
    - building the lean-to - the 'creative carpentry/building project'
    - moving belongings to the new home. The move will be just two doors away, in the same street, but there are steps up and down......
    - the daily chores of life in the house (shopping, cooking, washing, ironing, cleaning)
    - dog-walking
    - gardening (not so necessary in the Autumn/Winter months).

    I am looking for people who are trustworthy and willing to work carefully, mindfully, and independently on given tasks, and without supervision.

    I have no restrictions concerning life preferences such as vegetarianism, but I am looking for non-smokers. Single people or attached couples are both fine.

    Unterkunft

    The new house has two double bedrooms and one single, for the use of Travellers (I am live in a rented house in the same terrace - just two doors away). Both houses have long gardens, and are in a quiet location, with nearby woods to walk in. Chesham is around an hour’s tube journey to London (on the Metropolitan Line), and is a quiet town, with plenty of shopping facilities, set in the beautiful countryside of the Chiltern Hills.

    Chesham station on the Transport for London Metropolitan Line is 15 minutes walk away; a Day Travel-card to London is around £15.00 off-peak, and the Metropolitan Line goes directly to Central London; one can also change onto the Chiltern Line directly to London Marylebone. I can recommend interesting places to visit in London.There are also beautiful local walks to enjoy locally.
