More Information

My wife and I have been together since 1995 spending a couple of months apart at times. I am a 75 year old male retired from the merchant navy in 2013 after many years offshore as captain, marine pilot attached to the Royal Canadian Navy and tanker captain/fleet manager with coastal company based in Felixstowe, Suffolk.
I am 120kgs, 1.89m tall and love the countryside and seaside alike. I had my own dog until I had a lower leg amputation in 2015 he was an Alaskan Malamute. We now just have two male Tabby cats, one died last month, brothers, who are nearly 13 years young and are very independent. we also share the garden and feed a family of monkjacks, father, mother and son, who are happy to come in from the marshy woods behind us and eat apples.
I am used to doing handyman jobs and am happy to walk dogs though at a slower pace now having to wear a prosthetic lower left leg.
I am a non smoker since 1995.
I am a good cook and happy to share a meal with a dog or cat if they they are allowed to be spoiled. A full roast beef dinner is usually their preference along with fish and chips.
I have my own car, Chrysler Grand Voyager auto and frequently go for a drive on my own if my wife is working her usual 0830-1800 shifts 5 days a week.
I am not inclined to foreign travel now so would love to give others a break from home to enjoy the World. I have seen most of it from the 60's through to 2011.

I have recently acquired my DBS certification, having had many high profile clearances during my time with the Royal Canadian Naval Auxiliary from 1975-1982.

I have been accepted for sitting in Cleethorpes.
I had a great days in Cleethorpes house/dog sitting, lovely dog who was very affectionate and loyal, a good bed companion after a couple of days. Loved to play ball at the park. Happy to sit there again if requested to!

Sorry for any inconvenience but have to have ME time.
This year I have appointments to end of March but short dog/cat/house sits are available and hope to hear from prospective persons especially in Nottinghamshire areas.
Times booked at the moment are to end of March and mid July to 15 August when granddaughter visits from Singapore so this cannot be changed.
