'Courier' service between Reading & Bracknell

I try to get to all Foxes' Den meetings & Meet & Greets, and also most Coffee meetings.

If anyone wants items transported between Reading based members and Bracknell based members, get them to my house and I will take them with me to the Foxes' Den meetings, or pick them up there and bring them back for collection from my house or at the next Meet & Greet.

I have a fridge and freezer for storage of perishables, and a cool box for transporting them. (I occasionally have to miss a meeting - contact me to find out if I am going to be there.)

Contact me to arrange to drop off and pick up items etc.

N.B. I go to Meet & Greet by bus so no heavy or bulky items for this location.

Online conversation is one of the few LETS activities that can be done even during lockdown! As a native Italian speaker I can offer help in various ways: conversation, language practice, translation, information. I have helped in the past a LETS member to communicate with Italian people in Italy, unable to speak English.

Jet-washing patio areas and/or garden furniture - Reading area

Jetwashing patios, steps, or garden furniture is really effective I find at getting them clean without needing to use chemicals, and can give a real uplift to the look. Not suitable I think for decking or wooden furniture.

Needs a tap that hose attachment will fit to and electric socket to plug jet wash into - I have electric extension lead and long hose

Slightly higher hourly rate because I'll provide the jetwash and hose.

If you have a necklace or bracelet that has broken, and want the beads restrung, I can do this for you using silk beading thread, jewellery wire or jewellery elastic. I can also remake 'strung' or 'dangle' earrings using head pins and ear wires.

Knife Sharpening Service

Knife Sharpening Service

I can sharpen your kitchen knives, however I cannot sharpen serrated blades.

A dull blade is actually more dangerous to use than one that is sharp. Here's why: A dull blade requires more pressure to cut, increasing the chance that the knife will slip with great force behind it. A sharp knife "bites" the surface more readily. 

 

Lawn Mower blades can also be sharpened and balanced.

It’s recommended that you sharpen the blade of your lawnmower at least once a year.

Dull blades will roughly rip through grass, leaving behind raggedly torn tips on the ends of the individual grass blades. And that can cause the grass to turn brown and leave your lawn more susceptible to disease and pests. Sharp blades, on the other hand, cut grass quickly and cleanly, resulting in a neatly trimmed, healthier lawn.

Life Coaching

Life coaching is for everyone. It’s about giving a person a safe space to think about whatever is on their mind. It can also help clarifying goals and figuring out how to reach them, how to remove blocks. It can also be about getting to know yourself better, becoming more aware of what makes you happy, about what you want in life. Getting someone's full attention and being able to speak without being interrupted is a rare thing people don’t get in normal social situations. A coach will hold a safe and confidential space to allow this to happen for you. We have very busy lives with no time to stop and just think through things. However, it is so critical to do so! Time is precious, we only have 1 life. What do we want to do with it? How do we want to spend that precious time? Too many people realize too late they haven't lived how they hoped and dreamed.

Most of the time, it's not too late! There is no age limit to dream and make changes, for as long as we have some life in us.

I adapt to what the person needs and sometimes a good coaching session is just about listening in a very caring way with no judgment and it’s all the person might need.

Note: For adult sessions, I’m happy to talk to anyone willing to have a conversation. For young people, there are some safeguarding and confidentiality elements that I need to cover with both the parents and the minor. If there is an interest, I will discuss it further directly with the people interested. I joined a charity that brings coaching to schools so I have gained experience working with young people around 14-15 yo.

Happy to answer any questions.

If interested, let's have a chat to start with!

Preventative Car Maintenance

Regular preventive maintenance is probably the single thing you can do as a car owner to keep your car happy and save money on repairs in the future.



I can carry out preventative car maintenance procedures such as:

Power Steering Fluid Flush – keeps your power steering pump and rack in tip-top condition

This is not normally carried out during your annual service, but it is recommended to keep you car in good conidtion and prevent expensive bills down the line.

Lubricating locks and hinges – prevents doors and locks from getting stuck leaving you stranded

Fluid level and condition checks - low fluid levels or worn out fluids can cause serious damage to your car

Tyre Pressure checks with a professional calibrated guage -incorrect tyre pressure can cause increased fuel costs or even worse a tyre to explode at high speed!

Tyre Tread depth - tyre tread depth is critical for safety, worn out tyres can cause skidding in wet weather or tyres to explode in hot weather. On the other hand some less scrupulous garages will say your tyres will need changing when they dont to sell you new tyres, I can give you an independant evaluation.

Yarn winding

Do you sometimes buy yarn in skeins, and have to wind it into balls before you can knit with it? Do you have to find someone willing to hold the skeins then spend a tedious time winding each ball by hand, making your (and their) shoulders ache? I have a yarn 'swift' and ball winder and can wind the skeins into neat 'yarn cakes' for you. Let me know in advance and I can bring them to a First Wednesday meeting or Meet & Greet, or bring the skein to a meeting or my house.

Typically 4 Bricks per skein, unless the skein is a particularly large one which will take longer to wind, in which case I will tell you the Bricks before I start.

4 per skein
