  • Description


    I am a single lady, working as a nurse full time so out of the flat a lot. Currently there is just myself living in the flat.
    For many years I neglected the place due to very low mood and general ill health, now I am well again i want to get my flat back to how it was.
    There is a lot of general maintainance and decorating to be done.

    I am fairly flexible about what times you work, you can do a few hours each day before you go out, or if you prefer you can do a long day in order to have more free days

    I would prefer you to arrive on a tuesday/saturday or sunday when I have more free time to welcome you, otherwise you would have to arrive very late evening after I return from work on monday/wednesday/thursday or friday

    I am vegetarian and would prefer you to be as well
    Vegetarian Food is provided but could be flexible on this.
