More InformationI’m a friendly and reliable sitter and very community spirited. I like meeting people and love caring for animals too. This includes dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, chickens, pond life and reptiles. Since retiring I have taken up writing. I edit the local village magazine (I live in Nottinghamshire) and have just finished a novel. I enjoy a change of scene and seeing other parts of the UK.
I have looked after friend’s houses and their pets when they’ve gone away on holidays. Most people describe me as sociable, capable and dependable but with a sense of fun. I do enjoy keeping a place tidy and clean and would always seek to keep another person’s space in a good and tidy order, (because it’s your home - not just a house). I am well capable of hosting, i.e. making people feel welcome - as I have noticed that a few Mindahome members have holiday let(s) attached that may require greeting your paying guests. I understand the importance of friendly hosting, but without being intrusive of course. I like going on dog walks (about 3 to 5 miles) and would be sensitive to animals that have conditions, like arthritis for example, who may require a gentler pace and shorter strolls. But equally happy to cope with those who have more energetic needs. I have a small, peaceful whippet; she rarely barks but is totally friendly towards other dogs and cats. I have had her since a pup and she is well socialised, has manners and, like me, is fully housetrained. So that’s “the package” or the team. If you think I can help you let me know. If you want to meet up first, that’s fine too. I have no concerns whatsoever about providing formal security checks etc.
