Where to start! I have been happily married for 30 years and have 4 children- 27 yrs, 25yrs, 24yrs and 15 years old. Not sure where all that time has gone! Ha!! We live in the countryside and have and old horse for a pet and two loveable dogs. I enjoy a bit of painting too and have had a couple of exhibitions in the past- all good fun. My husband Billy works as an aircraft engineer and I used to work as a classroom assistant but gave up to concentrate on managing our flats for holiday accommodation. I love meeting people and hearing their stories - so this is the perfect job for me! We love to travel and explore new places when we can. Absolutely love the choice Airbnb gives you.
