East of England Norfolk, Suffolk
We have good health and clean driving licences. For most of our adult lives we have lived in Suffolk, where we brought up our two children. We are now retired. One of us has been a caterer, specialising in weddings, and has owned a restaurant. The other has written books and journalism on various subjects, including the countryside. We have kept hens and a flock of sheep. We have looked after many houses, from cottages to a chateau, on behalf of friends while they went on holiday. We have also looked after various dogs, as well as owning one of our own. For the last ten years we have lived in a period cottage with a large garden.
