House Sit Gone Crazy

We’ve not actually gone very far from our daughters, oops nearly said which is our home away from home but no we actually don’t have a home oh well we do it’s W3. We’ve just finished our 6th house since 18 December.

First off there was Kenmore Hills and Sheba the 17 year old staffy cross who we’ve looked after 3 times, then off to Toowong where we looked after gorgeous Pud the precious white cat. This overlapped with another Toowong house sit where we had Waffles the slightly psycho groodle, she had such a lovely personality and won our hearts very quickly. Then we headed south to Springfield Lakes where we had a small menagerie with Spirit the over weight lab, Felix the cat and his timid sister Shadow and there was also fish to take care of including a shark fish all of 8 centimetres long who had been banned from the main tank for beating up the other fish.

We were then back on the north side in the delightful Samford Valley and another menagerie this time 4 chooks, a duck and 2 cats both with great but different personalities. This is more remote than any other place we’ve stayed and I wondered how I’d find the 10 minute drive to the train but no problem there and it was so nice to come home to a lovely property and go for an evening walk admiring the neighbourhood. Thankfully Rob didn’t work while we were here unlike all the other places where he’s been gone more than he’s been home.

And that’s another story with the driving jobs to many various locations between Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. And a few mishaps with trucks thankfully none his fault and no injuries incurred.

Whilst it’s been good staying at all these places and enjoying the company of so many lovely pets it was nice to be back to spend time with our 2 energetic Granddaughters before we spent a few more days with Sheba.

Back with Cherie now for a couple of weeks before heading to another house sit. A good time to do more preparation for our big trip.
