Introduction

We consider ourselves to be semi-retired from professional life and have lots of rustic travelling experience throughout the world. We are very capable of tending a garden and enjoy doing this. We are mature, clean and tidy and just want to continue enjoying our lives now we have more time to do so. Carole is a one-day-a-week adult education teacher of disadvantaged learners and Tim used to run his own business. We have both owned and rented our own homes so we know how to look after property and gardens. Carole was brought up on farm life and has had a number of dogs and cats to care for throughout her life. We love to attend rock concerts, watch football and spend time in nature. We are used to city living or being in the countryside. We look forward to hearing from you.

 


Why we want to house sit

Since beginning our journey of house and pet sitting we have realised this is a way of life we love. Carole works from home marking learners work or writing articles and finds house sitting gives her time to catch  up and get things done on line. Tim enjoys the opportunity to explore. We are unable to have our own pets where we live, so pet sitting gives us the opportunity to still enjoy the company of dogs and cats. We are well travelled and love to live as locals do when we are sitting. We would rather do non-touristy things and just 'live the life as it is!' 


Previous House Sitting Experience

 Carole has just returned from a weeks 2 x dog/house sit in Northern Spain. At the end of last year we both did a 2 month house/dog sit in Goa, India, looking after an elderly male Labrador in a gated community, which was a delight. In the summer of 2018 we house/pet sat in Portugal for two loveable dogs and a sweet cat, which we both loved looking after. Prior to that we looked after two adorable cats in Copenhagen. Carole also does paid house/pet sitting in the UK for clients who want their large homes and pets securely looked after whilst they are away. We can provide testimonials from our house/pet sits and a reference.
