I work 3 days a week, by choice, looking for a work life balance. This works well for me. I have an active lifestyle and enjoy cycling, walking and the gym. As a family we enjoyed the company of 3 dogs and 1 cat, all sadly no longer with us. I have done housesitting for my children and friends at times - looking after a variety of animals and have also tended to my garden and home. I would like to try something new and house sitting more regularly sounded like an excellent idea.
