HOW APPLES & PEARS CAN SUPPORT YOU...
PERSONAL ASSISTANT & BUSINESS SUPPORT
Designing, Writing & Delivering Communication
Collation of Feedback & Results
Product Sourcing & Ordering
Sometimes we all need an extra pair of hands. Be it ad hoc, for a couple of hours/days or longer - I can step in and help.
I am lucky to have worked at Marks & Spencer PLC for nearly 34 years which has given me a great breadth of experience across many aspects of the business.
This insight and experience can be channelled into your business whatever your own aims, aspirations and goals are.
MOVING OR EXTENDING PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Organising and Overseeing Trades
Packing & Unpacking for Moves or Building Work
Room Staging and Styling
I have moved 8 times in the last 20 years. From my family home in Cumbria to a tiny room in a shared house, a small flat and so on in London. The last 5 properties we have fully renovated with me as the project manager. Some people hate it - but I have to say I love the whole process! Having done it so many times myself - if you would like me to manage any aspect of your move and/or building works then please let me know.
HOME ORGANISING & DECLUTTERING
Home Styling & Staging
Preparation for Marketing & Viewings
Wardrobes, Cupboards & Drawers
For those that know me - this is something I practice a lot in my own home. Having had over 20 years of London commuting, early starts and long days - knowing where everything is, and things being in their place has saved me precious time.
I also firmly believe that a well organised home can have a positive impact on your well-being.
Garden Design and Mood Boards
I got my love of gardening from my grandparents, great aunt and parents. Growing your own fruit and veg and then turning it into delicious food was, and still is a way of life in rural Cumbria.
I studied for my RHS General Exam in Horticulture at Capol Manor College during the 4 years I worked in the Flowers & Plants department at Marks & Spencer. But it's the practical application that really makes you a gardener in my view. I love the constant change a garden presents, and the fact that there is endless opportunity to keep learning.
Feeling connected with your outdoor space is more important than ever; as our homes extend we have the joy of feeling that there is less of a barrier between inside and outside - so it matters even more that it is functional but also looks great.
