In February 2019 we accepted a 2 week house sit in Hampshire, England caring for sheep and pigs on a small rural holding. The sit would be in April and we were told that even though it would be lambing season there would be no additional responsibilities.

House Sitting in Mexico (part 2)
We did a total of 6 house sits during our 5 months in Mexico (Oct 2018 – March 2019). Our previous post “House Sitting in Mexico part 1” covered our first three sits so this post will cover the other three we did in Puerto Vallarta, Patzcuaro and San Miguel de Allende.

Jack & Scooby
This is our 3rd visit to Chiang Mai, Thailand but our first house sit in this city looking after 2 cats Jack & Scooby. The home owners are ex-pats from Queensland and have made Thailand their new home and we were delighted when they asked us to care for their precious fur babies while they returned to Australia for 2 weeks.
