Our meet up at Jugged Hare had a total of 14 people and I have to repeat it was fabulous. We came as strangers and left as friends and each of us gave and took something meaningful, inspirational and useful.
Great smiles and warm hearts.

Thank you Sam for organising the meetup and thank you Angela for your generous hospitality. It was my pleasure as a ‘newbee’ to meet all the experienced sitters face to face and have them answer my many questions. What a fascinating community I have joined. It is literally opening up a whole new world to me.

Hi @Surbitonsue welcome to our community forum and to TrustedHousesitters it was wonderful meeting you on Saturday thank you for joining us. Being new to our community please don’t hesitate to ask lots of questions (if you have lots of course) as our members are really helpful & supportive, we cannot wait to share in your new THS adventure.

We spoke about sitting locally to help you get started but here’s the million dollar question, with all of the amazing opportunities on the site, where would you ultimately like to sit, and what pet would be your dream companion?

We’d love to know. … :wink:

Hi @Angela
Thank you so much for your generous hospitality at the meetup on Saturday. Sam certainly picked a lovely venue and I will no doubt return there with friends for an impromptu drink and a snack in future if I am in the vicinity.

I have just linked my sitter profile to my forum profile and I would be grateful for your expert feedback. I am quite confident that I have written a good personal statement and that my references are as good as I could hope for. I received a couple of invitations within 24hrs of going live and another a couple of days later, so I took that as a good sign. Unfortunately I had to turn them down as they were too far from local and I am still working full time, so I need good public transport links. I didn’t put this in my profile as I thought it would deter people but maybe I should state a radius? I am open to suggestions as to whether I should add anything or leave anything out.

Having just received my first rejection for a local sit I was very much hoping to be picked for I wonder why they did not give a reason but I assume they had to read through several applications which was why they took a few days to come to a decision. Is it normal for HOs to not give a reason, and would it be a good idea to reply to thank them anyway for reading my application and say that I hope they will consider me for a future sit?

Once I have done a few local sits I’d like to spend a week in Edinburgh in October and maybe think about going somewhere special over the Christmas period. I haven’t thought about my ultimate destination yet but it would ideally involve siamese cats :smile:
