Gardening cat seeks company
I am retired but seem to be busier than ever! My family is scattered across the globe and I like to visit them as often as I can. At home, I enjoy yoga and tai chi, singing and playing the piano when I am not knitting, crocheting or reading. The garden is large and keeps me busy throughout the year.
Our Home & Location
The house is mostly on the ground floor although there is a study upstairs. It is situated in a small village near to Hinckley and historic Market Bosworth, site of the famous Bosworth Battlefield. There is a bus service to Hinckley several times a day but no shops within the village. Leicester is about half an hour away by car and boasts a large covered market. There are many walks within easy distance and the Ashby Canal runs nearby.
Responsibilities & Pets
Marmite, the cat is an active 15 year old who enjoys company but is not allowed in the house which he does not always remember. He needs feeding once a day. Occasionally he brings gifts but they are usually dead. Fish may require occasional feeding in warm weather. In summer the courtyard has a number of planted containers which being south facing, may require watering in hot weather - there is a handy hose pipe! If I am organised, the greenhouse has a few tomato plants and the small vegetable plot has a soaker hose for ease of watering.
