My boyfriend and I will be back in the UK from mid Feb to mid May. We're looking for a house sit during some or all of this time, for anyone who's away on holiday. Willing to look after pets. Totally happy to contribute to bills too.
Our situation: we're both in the process of building up online businesses (web design and a climbing instructional website), so working from home. We have to return to the UK whilst our Canadian visas are being processed. We can't afford to rent whilst we're still getting our web stuff off the ground, but don't want to be stuck back at our parents' houses pretending we're teenagers again either!
We're 31/32, active climbers and runners. There's plenty of people on UKC who could give us both references if required.
If you're heading away on holiday for a while in the spring, we could save you loads in pet care costs, as well as keeping your house secure whilst you're gone! Please get in touch if this sounds like it could be of interest.
