I am a police officer with 30 years experience, my wife is a teacher of 20 years, recently qualified as an art therapist. We have 2 boys, 14 (almost) and 9. Want to use our long service leave to experience life in UK for 3 months.
Our boys are use to being around vintage furniture and antique goods....they understand what "don't touch" means! They are house trained!
We are non-smokers and very tidy.
We currently have three rescued cats and two chooks. We use to own a German Shepherd named Bob but sadly he passed aged 11 years.
We are looking forward to experiencing the UK lifestyle (including Northern Ireland and Ireland). This would also be a great way to meet new people, make contacts, learn the history of the area, follow the UK family tree lines and create wonderful family memories while helping people at the same time by looking after their home and/or pets. We love animals! We are also using a house sitter for our own home, so have first hand experience of what it is like to use a house sitter.
We currently are booked in for 5 house sits around UK.
