Reliable, practical, friendly UK couple
We are a non smoking couple from the UK in our 50s. We have been together for 30 years and owned our own homes in Hampshire, for 28 years.
We left full time employment in 2019 to travel and experience other countries for much longer periods of time, planning to house and pet-sit to enable slow travel.
We had worked for our respective employers for around 20 years each and it was time for a change. This was pre-pandemic, and we have had to adapt the plans a little!
We love animals, in particular dogs, and would enjoy caring for them whilst looking after a property, we are essentially homebodies who love to travel! We much prefer to stay home in the evenings, cook our own meals and then cosy up with a film, a book and a furry friend. Our friends' cats are usually up for a snuggle too, but of course only on their own terms.
We regularly look after and have full responsibility for our neighbour's dog, and we find this hugely rewarding. Many of our friends and family have furry friends and we adore them; if our ultimate plan wasn't to travel long-term we would absolutely have our own pets.
We are an active couple who regularly go on walks and love canine company on them.
Graham has worked all his life as a technical service engineer, with plumbing and electrical skills - a very practical and resourceful, tidy worker, he also loves the garden. Watering, deadheading, weeding, mowing - all favourite past times.
Heather was employed as the Customer Service Manager with an international manufacturing firm, dealing with customers, leading a team, liaising with production and also shipping worldwide - lots of problem solving skills and attention to detail, reliable and sensible.
Due to the effect of Covid-19 on the world, we are now exploring house-sits in our glorious UK.
We have had both doses of the vaccines and so are fully vaccinated!
Graham has a 2018 DBS Certificate via his previous employment, Heather is applying for hers.
We would love to be considered for house-sitting opportunities. With us in your home, you can travel stress free knowing your home and loved ones are in the right hands.
We have been in contact with some lovely HouseOwners on here and have been offered many sits already, so we are very excited for the experiences to come.
Please do get in touch, we would love to talk to you via message, telephone or video call.
