    - garden and fence
    - cabinets
    - Installing windows
    - cooking
    - cleaning

    Weekdays, early morning starts (flexible timing 20 hrs per week each)
    Working on our home renovation alongside my husband Steve or myself, preparing for painting, undercoat painting, handiwork, fences, paving, carpentry, landscaping, cleaning, cooking
