    I am an educated professional female none smoker living alone. I have a cat whom is out much of the time or in my bed sleeping and a dog who has beautiful nature and loves a belly rub and a play or a walk no matter how short. I am quite relaxed and easy going in character and enjoy meeting new people and broadening my knowledge. I work full time.

    I live close to the River Trent and several popular bars and restaurants.

    My home is set in a beautiful part of Nottinghamshire in a hamlet in the countryside. There is a bus that runs to Nottingham City Centre half hourly most of the week that is 1.8 miles from my house (5 mins car/30 mins walk).

    There is also a train station in the local village that goes to Newark and Nottingham. Newark train station offers good service for London and other areas.

    My home is easily accessible for several cities due to easy access to A1, M1 and A46 such as Lincoln, Newark, Leicester, Birmingham, Leeds, Sheffield, Doncaster and London.

    The closest train stations are:

    Lowdham, Nottingham, Newark, Kirkby in Ashfield, Mansfield, Hucknall

    The closest airport is Eastmidlands airport.

    The closest bus stations are:

    Nottingham, Mansfield, Sutton in Ashfield, Newark

    I work full time midweek and would appreciate any help with the following areas:

    It would be great if someone could help reorganize my home, sell items online for me and tidy and clean the home. I have some items to sell but do not have the time to photograph them put a description and put online etc and it would be great if someone could do this for me.

    I have a few painting jobs in the house of internal wooden doors and painting kitchen and hallway walls. All the jobs should not take long for someone to do or be unpleasant its just that I work long hours and find being tidy and organised very difficult.

    There are lots of opportunities in Nottingham to develop English Language skills through language skills meet up groups that are free. All the workaway volunteers that have visited my home have enjoyed these meet up groups for developing language skills and meeting new people.

    I am appreciative of any help in any of the aforementioned tasks and hope it makes sense. It would be great if you are organised, have initiative and confidence and have some experience in this field!

    I really need to declutter and reorganise my home and this is a top priority for me currently. Therefore someone with good organizational and creative skills and an eye for detail would be fabulous.

    I do not wish to offend but volunteers need to be non smokers and 40 or above years old as I feel I have had more positive experiences as a host with mature volunteers whom have more life experience and skills. My apologies in advance to young people who I am many sure have lots to offer. However, my experiences so far have often been negative and I need to be selective and careful at the moment due to needing the work done quite quickly.

    Anyone staying at my home needs to have the experience and or motivation to complete house work to a satisfactory standard! And to be genuinely committed to helping me by doing what I need properly. I am happy to show what I need doing and to welcome you to my home. You will require the confidence to be self motivated and independent as I work long hours and am not around alot.

    I have had several young workawayers who felt workaway a free holiday in someone's home and have created more mess for me than I started with. Of course I shall try to introduce you to places and to make your stay as enjoyable as possible should you wish to stay at my home.

    Sorry if my comments are cynical or harsh but just trying to protect myself from being taken advantage off and my home being damaged as it has been so far.

    Thank you for your interest and I look forward to hearing from you should you not be offended by my comments.

    Obviously the useful skills I need are as follows:

    Painting, organization skills, IT skills, tidying and cleaning the home. Coupled with a hard work ethic, independence skills and initiative as I am not around a lot and need someone to be assertive and be able to say what they want and need.

    Thank you 😊

    ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKERS PLEASE

    My home is set in a beautiful part of Nottinghamshire in a hamlet in the countryside. There is a bus that runs to Nottingham City Centre half hourly most of the week that is 1.8 miles from my house (5 mins car/30 mins walk).

    There is also a train station in the local village that goes to Newark and Nottingham. Newark train station offers good service for London and other areas.

    I live close to the River Trent and several popular bars and restaurants. Tourist attractions easily accessible from my home is Southwell Minster, Nottingham Castle, Galleries of Justice and I'm sure many more tourist attractions I'm not really aware of.

    My home is easily accessible for several cities due to easy access to A1, M1 and A46 such as Lincoln, Newark, Leicester, Birmingham, Leeds, Sheffield, Doncaster, London, etc.

    I'm fairly busy much of the time but happy to adapt, adjust and include to ensure staying at my home is as positive experience as possible. I am fairly easy going, relaxed and sunny natured in character so only ask that whomever is staying at my home tries to be as tidy as possible and try to be considerate with regard to use of utilities such as heating, phone, electricity etc. It would also be nice if I could be introduced to anyone invited to my home just to respect my privacy and need to feel safe in my home, rather than be anxious about unfamiliar people in my home.

    My home is a NO SMOKING household even outside so my apologies if this is a problem.
