  • Description

    Description

    I live in a small maisonette in a leafy suburb in South Birmingham, 6 miles from the centre. The bustling little town of Shirley is 30 minutes walk from my house and nearby to my house is a bus stop with regular bus services to Birmingham city centre till midnight.
    There are lots of parks and woods and a lake and a river within 500m from my house.
    About me, I used to work as a journalist back at my home country Malaysia but In Birmingham, I am just husbandless housewife. ,
    Most of the help I need, is to do with gardening . I have a 30 feet x 80 feet plot that needs maintenance and preparation for spring. Currently, I need someone who have knowledge to create raised flower bed and build a small polytunnel.
    I will provide your meals and sometimes you can help me to prepare the meals.
    I have a warm comfortable room but sometimes it would be sharing basis if you are a pair.
    Your cleanliness is a priority. You may cook your own meals if you keep tidy .
    I have home wifi.
    At this time I can host only a maximum of 10 days as there are many requests and I am not able to host long stays.
    I can host a maximum 3 at a time if your are in a group but ideally 2 workawayers is good for joint work effort which gives you more time to do your own sightseeing.
    Single workawayers are welcomed.
    Apart from teaching some English, I could also teach you to cook Asian and can share some knowledge about Eastern religions and culture.

    P/S Please be prepared with some knowledge on what you would like to do when visiting Birmingham and also be aware that you need to be financially prepared for your own expenses and emergencies when travelling in the UK.
    Birmingham is very popular during November and December for its Christmas market which is one of the biggest in Europe.
    I share a cat with my neighbour so it may not be suitable for people with cat allergies
