Often our clients and friends ask about our travels and our house and pet sitting experiences and we thought that a blog would be a good way to share our stories both past and present.
We have met and made friends with some lovely humans, canines and felines over the past 5 years and we hope that you enjoy reading about our pet sitting and house sitting experiences as much as we enjoy regaling our "tails"!

Diamond Jubilee Weekend
Is it over yet!
What a weekend! We have both been on different sits, Tracy in Pewsey, Wiltshire, and Della in Ludlow, Shropshire.
We have both watched the celebrations on the TV for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. We are feeling worn out we dread to think how the Queen is feeling.
It was good to see the country come together, and interesting to look at the archive film and photos of the last 60 years of the Queen's reign. I think we have reached our limit though now and are going to pack our Union Jack flags away until the next time.
Tracy and Della
Present location:UK and Europe
We are an English, female couple who decided10 years ago to do something different with the second half of our lives! We share a love of travel and animals and since "retiring" from our conventional jobs in finance and the Civil Service we have been house and pet sitting around the globe. We have had the good fortune to visit many beautiful places. We have spent a considerable amount of time in France (our first love!), we spent almost a year travelling in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore in 2008/09 and after a summer spent between France and the UK we enjoyed a marvellous month on the Greek island of Crete, 5 months living on Vancouver Island,BC, Canada, and then two weeks on the Big Island,Hawaii. We have been splitting our time between the UK and mainland Europe, pet and house sitting and looking after properties, wherever we are required. Life is good.
