Hi Neighbours!
I am currently in between jobs and would like to keep myself useful in the meantime.
If you or anyone you know could do with a bit of a hand around the place, I can help with house cleaning and garden maintenance (weeding, mowing etc- just the basics).
Minimum booking of 1 hour.
I am reliable, trustworthy, and I do not believe in doing a job unless you intend to do it properly.
I have 4 years previous experience as a house cleaner so I can certainly provide references from previous clients if they are needed-no problem at all 😊
My rate is $20phr plus $5 per visit towards travel and I will bring all of my own gear (though if vacuuming is required I will use your vacuum or you can pay another $5 for me to bring my own).
I am also available to clean ovens!
$50 flat rate for a standard oven and again I will bring my own gear.
If you are interested or if you have any questions please feel free to send me a message. I am available to visit, see what you need doing and give you a quote.
Whatever needs doing feel free to sound me out and I'll consider it.
I'll be available Monday - Friday from 9am starting next Monday 😊
Thanks heaps

Marcus will make it sharp!

Our 20 year old autistic son, Marcus has always been a perfectionist. He has a certain way of getting things done right, even if it would mean doing them again and again.

My wife and I would often encourage Marcus to pursue his interests. His passion is in 3D drawing using Solidworks and Sketchup. However, those jobs are hard to come by. He is currently taking a bakery course in Weltec. He enjoys it so much that we get endless supplies of his baking treats. Never mind he left his set of chef uniform on the bus last week – second time in a month. Certainly raising a special needs child is challenging yet fulfilling.

We would like Marcus to acquire several skill sets so he can be more independent and eventually seek a job for his future.

6 months ago, we bought a knife sharpening machine (Tormek T-8) since Marcus has a knack for sharpening knives. Marcus has been busy sharpening all the knives in our household, including the neighbours’ and our church friends’.

Now, Marcus wants to offer his knife sharpening services to the community. He believes a good sharp knife should cut a carrot with ease. So Marcus will make sure all sharpened knives will have to go through the “carrot” test.

$5 per knife
$7 per cleaver

The prices are below the market rate as we just want Marcus to enjoy doing what he does and also to meet the community. The money he earns will be another step for us to help him understand to manage his funds when he eventually gets a job.

Please PM me if you would like Marcus to sharpen your knives.

Greetings friendly neighbours of Tawa.

I've just moved to the area and unfortunately lost out on a contract i expected to see me through until the end of the year .

Money is fast running out so I'm putting the feelers out to see if there is anything i can help out with in the local area that can keep me going whilst I establish my new business in the fitness sector.

Most of my career has been spent in the IT sector in various roles both technical and account management . I am a linux systems and network specialist, and also competent with Windows and Mac... So any computer issues you might have i can help ir advise.

I got out of that industry a year ago to get back into carpentry as i like working with my hands and can do virtually anything from building , plumbing , drain laying , data , landscaping , or even painting .

I have my own tools and vehicle , competent and experienced. Friendly and honest.

If you need something done , fixed , improved, built or dismantled and removed ... Get in touch and we'll see if we can help each other .

Don't have money ? I'm open to bitcoin, trade , barter, time-bank, or learning new skills . (keep in mind i cant pay bills with these things yet so do need to make some money and will prefer cash over other forms of payment).

Thanks for keeping me in mind .
