Hello, my name is Susan, aged 66 and a recently retired Diversional Therapist in rest home facilities. My earlier employment being Retail Manager, Nurse Aide, Rest Home provider & local school Teachers Aid. (all requiring police clearance). Now I have some spare time I am a volunteer each week to help run a local craft shop and run a friends gift shop when required. I enjoy
handcrafts, container gardening, caravanning and social outings with the Waiau Car Club. Also, my enjoyment comes from our family pets as my husband and I have always had some sort of furry creature under our feet. Unfortunately all our dogs have gone to heaven the last being our much loved pug 'Sophie' We now only have one Burmese Chinchilla X 'Fleur' after loosing our calico 'Chelsea'.
Steven - aged 69 born Christchurch NZ
Now retired, employment included : Cartage truck driver, Air Force Police, Tour Coach driver, Concrete Plant Supervisor. (police clearance required ) I have spent most of my working life behind the wheel of some sort of vehicle so now retired I can spend more time watching V8 car racing, doco's on aircraft especially spitfire, go to Air shows and caravanning with my wife of 46 years. We joined the Waiau Car Club to make friends and socialise and help put on events to help make money for various local community groups. Our Mazda Roadster gets taken out for a spin with the Club, I enjoy eating out and B B Q's.
My wife and I have very little experience in house sitting, only looking after our daughters home and menagerie in Kaikoura for two weeks, so now we are retired we would like to test our skills looking after somebodies much loved home and pets and hope that you would consider us as your very reliable house proud sitters.
Regards, Susan & Steven Harbott.
