About

I am aged 71 and my husband Doug is 73. We have always owned a home. We ran our current home of 20 years as a Bed and Breakfast establishment before we retired but now just enjoy having the place to ourselves. We rented a home for 12 months

Our experience

I have successfully completed three sitting positions in 2018 with good reviews. We have owned and operated a bed and breakfast establishment in a semi-rural/coastal setting situated on acres. Up until recently we have always had cats
