About

Hi there. We are Mike and Diane, 70 year old active retirees. We have been together for 20 years. Mike was an electrical engineer by profession and now does voluntary work for the British Heart Foundation. I was a Jack of all Trades

Why we want to house sit

We have only just joined Trusted Housesitters. A friend recommended me, and I thought it sounded an excellent idea, because we know just how hard it is to put some dogs in kennels, and how hard it is to find someone willing to walk a dog

Our experience

I have been a dog owner for 59 years and Mike has owned dogs almost as long. In the past I have kept sheep, goats, geese, ducks and peacocks. I can also milk (apparently it's something you never forget how to do, like riding a bike)
