  • Description


    I am a busy woman from London, I have two grown up sons, one still lives at home. I would like to host someone who is keen to help in the garden and around the house. I want to clear my garden shed and get help with the lawn which is overgrown and very dry. If you want to stay more than a month I would also like help with painting and decorating.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is plenty to do in London, I am walking distance to Portobello market, five stops from paddington station, and ten stops to Oxford Street which is the busiest shopping street in London. Galleries and Theatres are only a short distance from my house. It’s a nice village atmosphere but close to everything that London has to offer.
