  • Description


    I am in my late 50's, living with my five cats and Labrador dog. I love animals and nature.
    I am a home body who enjoys gardening, sewing and embroidery. Family and friends are important to me and I enjoy meeting new and like minded people. I am passionate about animal welfare and keen on doing my bit to help the environment. Composting and recycling are part of my everyday living. My home is comfortable, relaxing and homely but also clean, tidy and in keeping with its age. My home is over a hundred years old but fully renovated. Modern and practical but in keeping with its heritage.

    My current focus is reducing the lawn area and planning further garden beds. Also some clearing, digging and mulching in readiness for planting some native shrubs. I am looking for help with general odd jobs and home maintenance. Also some gardening and lawn mowing. Some help to prepare and paint inside room. some help with spring cleaning jobs would also be great.
    some basic carpentry or electrical skills would also be useful. I dont ask that someone would have all of these skills. Any help in one or more of these areas would be great.
