More information about this house sitterHello all, my name is Sue and I would like to introduce myself to prospective home and pet owners.
I am new to this particular house/pet sitting site but I have been sitting for a long time now with another housesitting website, a worldwide company that I have used for quite some time now. I have 15 reviews currently on that site and have copied those reviews for people to read, attached. I have worked very hard in acquiring my five star rating and hope to be able to continue that now that I am also registered with Mind A Home. So please, have a read through my profile and reviews and I also will give you below, a brief outline of my life to date, for your interest.
After many years of international travel, I have now succumbed to my inner gypsy and have begun home and pet sitting on a permanent basis. We only have one chance at life and my plan is to see and experience as much of it as possible through travel. In February this year, I sold my home, packed my bags and began what was to be travel and house/pet sitting throughout the world. I was booked up with sits until September throughout Asia and the UK and the plane ticket was in my hands. Unfortunately, this dreaded virus struck and my dreams were shattered. But now I am travelling Australia and sitting where possible, until once again our borders are open to the world and we are hopefully free to once again travel internationally. I am now based in Queensland which has always been home.
Before retiring, I worked in customer relations and sales for around 30 years. Previously I was a legal secretary and also have worked in the departmental office of a former Prime Minister of Australia. For the past five years I have hosted international language students in my home and also been an Airbnb host. A very independent and capable lady, there is very little that I cannot achieve or do. Show me a task and I will do it and if I cannot do it, I will find a way for it to be done. Never say die attitude! I love all animals, my Ziggy Dog was my whole life, like my child, but sadly I lost her a few years ago - she cannot be replaced. She is the one with the big "Christmas ears" in my photos! I have a great zest for life and always bond with people from all walks of life, be it in a hostel or a 5 star hotel, there is no distinction between age, race or ethnicity, diversity is what makes the world go round. Travel certainly broadens the mind and instils an amazing sense of companionship and friendship with all those we meet along the way. As mentioned, I owned my own home for the past 22 years until selling up recently. Previously I have had darling doggies, very beautiful cats and also fish, rats, birds, name it, I have had them all - all creatures great and small. I worked on a cattle property in outback Australia and also worked with sheep shearing teams as a cook and a roustabout in both New Zealand and Australia in days gone by. I love wide open spaces, rural areas and countryside, Australia certainly has plenty of that! I also enjoy city lights and activity. Being a very capable female, I know how to care for a home and for property. Quite the handywoman, there is very little I cannot do. I enjoy gardening, mowing lawns and any small maintenance work that needs doing and created my own sanctuary at home with palms, ponds, gardens etc.
I have attached a few photos of some of the adorable furbabies which I have cared for. Each and every one I grew to love so much as though they were my own. It is very difficult not to become attached but attached is definitely what happens! Every one of my babies has had their own special ways and I so much enjoy all the little talents and behaviours that they display. They all give love and companionship, asking nothing in return but a nice belly rub, cuddles and food of course! All very special. Even the chooks I have cared for liked cuddles!
So that's a little about me. If you would like to consider me to care for your home and/or furbies, I am happy to chat online via Skype, WhatsApp, Messenger, phone or whichever communication works best for you, I am available 24/7 if need be.
Thank you for taking the time to read all this, I look forward to sharing the love.
