Be aware that JERRY our CAT is very old now, and so he is best left alone, as he can be grumpy sometimes. 105 in human years.
This is our home, bringing strangers back to our home at any time is NOT OK
We may accept very well behaved pets, but only after a conversation about it first.
I am Danish, born in Argentina.
I have lived in the UK for a long time.
I love gardening and pottery (it's all mud) I am now exploring the art of glass fusing.
Creativity and interesting ideas are a passion.
I love meeting and hosting all you wonderful people.
I speak -
Francais, Español, Dansk,
aber nur ein wenig Deutsch
I pretend to speak Italian and Norwegian, and I can say a very few words in Arabic.
Paul is English, from Bournemouth, he works with looked after young people and loves watching football and listening to music.
He is also a great cheese enthusiast!
We share our home with a crazy old cat called Jerry, he is about 20 years old, and a typical ginger tomcat, we rescued him 18 years ago from a Sanctuary near Bere Regis, called The Margaret Green Foundation = (good people)
We are careful to keep him out of your room, though you are welcome to say hello - Jerry can be a little 'confused' because he has feline Alzheimer's -
(he is old - about 105 in human years) So best to only touch his head.
