Hi, we are Chris and Janet and we have been happily married for nearly 50 years.
Our two daughters are both married, the eldest having 2 teenage boys and our youngest daughter has 3 children, ranging from 2 to 12 years old.
Janet is a retired nurse. (Ward sister actually). I retired in November of 2011 after 35 years as a Shift Leader in UK gas Industry. Both of us are life long none smokers.
We own our own house (four bed detached) and 2 other smaller properties, which are rented out. All are in semi rural East Yorkshire.
We fully understand the love, time and affection which people invest in their properties, indeed we have done so in our own.
Please be assured that we will care for your pets and we will treat your house and property with the utmost respect.
Holidays have always been important to us and we have travelled quite widely in mainland Europe, usually as independent travellers. I now find that I get restless after a few days and start looking for lawns to mow or other little jobs to keep me occupied. Small pets are nothing new to us and all would be treated with care and kindness.
So far, during almost a dozen house sits we have been responsible for dogs, cats, peacocks, forest fowl, chickens and sheep
We now have several references from satisfied home owners and employers etc.
For several years Janet was a teacher's helper, at the local primary school, where she since became a Governor, for 5 years, only retiring from this position in July 2017. She was police vetted 3 times for these roles.
We would be pleased to hear from anyone particularly in the UK and Europe. Distance is no object - The world is our oyster!
Thank you for reading this.
