Having been lucky enough to grow up on a farm in the UK, I'm a avid lover of animals and the outdoors. I had many pets throughout my childhood, including dogs, cats and horses. While pursuing a career in publishing, I’ve been unable to devote enough time to a pet of my own, but I’m fortunate to have several doggy friends I've met through the online community Borrowmydoggy. I regularly walk and house-sit for a couple of local dogs - and can provide references on request.
I recently quit the rat-race after a 30-year career, and I'm looking for opportunities to travel while working 'from home' as a freelance editor. I'm flexible on destinations but particularly interested in visiting Sydney, Australia, as I have many friends there, having lived in Balmain for most of the 1990's. I would welcome the opportunity of having a furry friend (or friends) as company during my trip!
In addition to my editing career, I've been a landlord and rental property manager for many years, so appreciate the importance of looking after a home. I am a non-smoker, responsible and houseproud, and will take great care of any property I have the pleasure of visiting.
