I’m not just being polite when I ask, ‘How can I help you?’ I genuinely want to know. Would you like some suggestions? I can do that!
I could help you with the garden. Mowing the lawns, pulling up weeds, trimming hedges, planting, strimming, etc. I’ll get the bramble scratches and nettle stings, so you don’t have to!
I can speak IKEA! I like putting together flat-pack furniture and other kits that require assembly. I also know enough about carpentry and joinery to be able to reinforce and repair furniture if you like.
Hang it all! I can hang shelves, pictures, mirrors, curtains, cupboards, TVs and anything else that needs to to be fixed to the wall and hang level. I can hang things from your ceiling too if you want me to.
Water, water everywhere, but not where it should be. Leaky tap? Blocked sink? Toilet won’t flush? I’m on it. Anything above and beyond probably requires a professional plumber, but I’ll have a go!
You really shouldn’t be shocked. I can change lightbulbs, plugs and fuses, and I can help you get to grips with new small appliances, wire up your entertainment system, and show you how to do that thing on your computer that you can’t figure out.
Sew it begins! I’m even handy with a needle and thread! I can patch, hem, and alter garments and other fabric items. I can even add proper pockets!
Daunting domestic drudgery! Sometimes household chores can pile up and become overwhelming. I can help you get caught up on the dishes, cleaning, laundry, ironing, etc. or help you tackle that room full of clutter. These are my least favourite jobs though!
Jack of all trades. I’ll turn my hand to almost anything. If I don’t know how do it yet, then I’ll read up on it and give it a go anyway. I love a challenge, and the opportunity to try something I haven’t done before.
My standard rate is just £10 per hour, but I’d appreciate any additional assistance you can afford to help me get better tools, a small van so I can get to more places (and carry a lot more stuff), and ultimately into a place of my own (I’m currently regaining my feet in my parent’s basement). I also don’t like heights much, and £10 doesn’t seem like enough to risk my life up a ladder more than 10 feet up, so if you want me painting the second storey of your house, I’m going to charge an extra £10. You’re welcome to balk at that, I really don’t want to be that high up.
If you’re interested in making use of my ever expanding skill-set, please bear in mind that I reside in Kidwelly, Wales. I don’t have a vehicle yet. I can drive, technically, having driven for many years in the US. I just can’t drive legally in the UK yet. As I mentioned earlier, it’s on the list of purchases. If for some reason you decide you want to support me in my endeavours, you can donate via Paypal.
On the rest of the website you can see some story ideas I’ve been working on. I had thought I might have been able to make a career out of writing, but breaking into the market and building an audience has proven far too competitive. The self-discipline required to work on your writing projects, promote yourself, edit previous drafts, engage with the audience, and all the other crap that goes into being an independent writer has sucked all the fun out of it.
If you really want me to write something for you, and the job sounds fun, I might still write for money. However, it’s not going to be my main source of income. I may even publish a book or two. Not to make money. Just for fun. I’m definitely going to continue running the RP groups on Facebook. They’re fun, and I have an idea for another one. Ask, if you’re curious.
Regular visitors to this site are probably going to see more blog updates than they did when I was trying to write full-time! We’ll see. Enjoy the stories. Feel free to comment on my posts, or Facebook, to ask me questions about anything you like and get to know me better. You can also get to know me pretty well just reading my blog posts!
I look forward to hearing from you, whether it’s to offer me work, or just to talk to me.
Have a great day 🙂
