Originally from Scotland, I'm a professional Archivist who is transitioning to London life after 15 years of international travels.
A good Archivist (which I like to think I am!) is responsible, organised, contemplative, resourceful and empathetic. Qualities which also make a good housesitter, I reckon. I'm also a non-smoker and a quietly-living, low-maintenance gal.
I'm house and cat-sitting almost back-to-back these days, as I save hard to build my very own Grand Design eco-home one day. As well as genuinely loving animals, this makes me highly motivated to take excellent care of your home and pets and build up a portfolio of regular clients.
Although new to this particular Housesitting site, I've built up some good references on trustedhousesitters.com/house-and-pet-sitters/united-kingdom/england/london/l/261719/
Gillian is friendly and accommodating. She came to the house a day before to get acquainted to the wishes of my kitty, the particulars of the wee flat.
i received pictures and updates and nothing seemed to phase her - no matter how many times m'lady threw up or even went into the wrong close to get some sympathy off of unsuspecting people.
Good sport and lots of patience - thank you, Gillian
