Thread: Handy person?

  1. #1

    Handy person?

    I'm wondering if there is anyone from around the Essex area who is looking for a bit of work?
    My daughters bungalow, and my little flat need some bits and bobs doing.
    You'd be doing us a massive favour, and we're happy to pay.
    Thank you!

    I hate to be the one to ask the more obvious questions that will be going through anyones mind who may be able to do that sort of thing,but whereabouts in the county are you and what are the odd jobs that need doing?
    Those responses will make it much easier for the right person to know if he or she is the right person !!

    Last thing you want is someone turning up who can do the bits but not the bobs !!

    Good luck in getting it sorted xx
    anything is possible,that my friends is a mathematical certainty ;-)

    Very true! Well, the main bit (or possibly its a bob) is moving a pull out bed from one wall to another, and making some sort of frame around it with room for storage. The other bits are more general: some shelves put in a cupboard, a piece of glass replaced in a window, finishing off some mdf skirting board.. curtain poles..Its a real mish mash of stuff.
    We're in Essex..

    Much more helpful Miss Bee,

    Now lets pretend that I asked what part of the county are you in

    Maybe another thing for someone to know,if they come and do those jobs and they are in a live in vehicle,can they park up overnight ?

    Between us,we will get your jobs done

    Ok, well, I should imagine they would be able to park up. I can't think of any reason why not, as in needing permits or anything.
    And, yes, Essex.. that's what my answer would be, if we imagined you had asked.

    Aha! More specifically, we're near to Southend. Yes, I get your point (at last!) took a while, but we got there.

    I understand your need for clearer location regarding potential grafters to slave at Ms Bees pad,but ladies should not be requested nor expected to put their location online IC as the world and all therein are actively looking for opportunity of many kinds 24/7.I am sure that when Ms Bee feels ok about a persons cred she can pm herself.

    Near to southend is much better for any potential workers to know. That now opens it up for people who may commute to you

    You are a bit tetchy.Are you a grump because you were reminded about online privacy while you were being so very helpful in helping ms Bee organise her life?You do seem to appreciate followers rather more than those who see you as equal in mental dexterity.Not being a macho naughty are you?All big and muscular getting a wee bit agitated when a female querys your words?.

    I see you are off again Cricket, always taking offence, from what I read IC was trying to be helpful and help Miss bee find herself a handy person, and then you come along and twist what he was trying to say.

    Miss bee I am sure someone will come along and assist you

    You know that sometimes we have an angel on one shoulder and the devil on the other giving us their advice,well I picture Danann on one side of me and harry on the other and try to draw a conclusion between the two. No disrespect meant harry,quite the opposite in fact
