I am a good reliable house keeper, non smoker. I hold a clean driving licence and I am a good driver.
Around the houseI am responsible and quite capable of dealing with any eventuality . I trained as a carpenter for two years, which has been invaluable in caring for and maintaining properties, having owned several homes over the years.
Initially, I looked after the homes and pets of friends and family during holidays, Since I travel regularly to the UK, I decided to become a house sitter for other people. it gives me the opportunity to discover new places and getting to know areas of the country I would not have thought of exploring.
My background is in art and interior design, and spent a few years refurbishing and redesigning properties in the UK. I bought my house in the Costa Brava, first as a holiday home and in 2010 I decided to move here permanently. At home I have laid out my garden in a cottage style, which keeps me very busy most of the year.
Currently I am semi retired and I run a Life Coaching practice, in Spain, specialising in couples in crisis. Also I offer self development courses locally, a few times a year. I have two sons, one lives and works in Gibraltar, and my youngest lives in London and runs a dog sitting company in the Dulwich area.
I am very active, I have been practicing Yoga since my teens. I also practiceTai Chi and Qi Gong (soft martial arts) daily. In my spare time I paint botanical art in watercolours and acrylics. Originally, I started gardening to grow unusual plants and flowers for my painting, but gardening has grown to be a passion on it's own.
I am particularly interested in longer house sits, of two or more weeks particular in the SE of England during the winter and early spring.
Finally I am a person who likes to keep a clean and tidy house, being very mindful of other people's property. I will deliver a high standard of care to your pets and to your home and will provide you with updates while you are away.
