I am a recently retired University academic and looking forward to having the freedom to travel more frequently. My husband Andrew is a musician and also a university academic. We are an active couple who enjoy gardening and outdoor activities. We both have always loved and cared for animals, including dogs, rabbits, chickens, ducks, birds, fish and mice. Currently we don't have pets at home and are always glad when we have the opportunity to care for them even if it is only briefly!
