On the road near you:-)
Hi there. I am a well travelled forty something independent woman currently living in a self converted yellow van so I am practical and versatile! The van life is due to having spent the last few years working with a Buddhist charity organising and running camping retreats over the summer season and doing kit maintenance over the winter.
I have done lots of housesitting for friends and by word of mouth (refs available) and have dealt with more than one winter boiler breakdown and roof leakage! I have also (by request) got stuck into the garden and even taken on a loft insulation, However mostly I take pride in making sure people come home to a well looked after, clean and tidy space. I consider it a great privilege to be trusted to care for someones home and do my upmost to live up to that trust.
If you have pets I am a vegetarian animal lover who will take very good care of them. I grew up with a dog of my own and still love to go for long walks with dogs for company. I have kept chickens, worked with horses, done lots of cat, rabbit, guinea pig cuddling and have even (not very successfully) milked goats.
I am especially interested in longer winter house sits as the exchange for me is particularly about being in a warm space for the colder months. However I have an extremely flexible lifestyle and it is always worth trying me at short notice and/or for shorter periods.
Also it is important for me to be able to park my van close by where I know it is safe (it is a mwb so generally fits in a car space)
Looking forward to meeting you!
