Make sure the garden and pot plants are thriving when you get back - get a house sitter.
46, House painter
Why I'm here:
My name is Tom, I have lived in Brighton for the last 25 years and work as a self-employed decorator. I'm in the process of building up a website that will be a hub for decorators, customers of decorators and DIYers. To do this I need time off work but then I can't pay my rent. So I'm looking to spent the next year doing house sits to give myself time to do the work on the computer that I need.
I love nature and walking. A lot of my social time is spent walking on the Downs or on the beach with friends. I like to camp out too when I can.
I have house sitting before and also in a way I have been reasonable for my customers properties as they are often away on holiday when I work for them.
I understand that it can be nerve-racking to have someone look after your home. I'm happy for a naubours or friend to pop in every so often to see that everything is ok. I'm also happy to freind you on Facebook so that you can better get I sense of who I am.
I'm a doggy person! I have owned dogs, walked friend dogs, was brought up with dogs and have dog sat many times. I understand that it can be confusing for them when their owners are away and I make sure to disract them and to continue the routines that they are used to.
I also a cat person! I have sat for cats and lived with cats. I'm used to doing what they tell me to!
I'm open to doing house sits anywhere in the UK.
