I’m Sorry

Cancer Is Horrible, But I Need Treatment To Give Me A Bit More Time

Chemotherapy treatment is having an effect on my House Sitting

I’m completely frustrated at being unable to do any House Sitting at the present. Because of my cancer issues I have to be close to my Chemotherapy treatment. The Chemo treatment is supposed to go for a year, and I get it weekly. I never thought that having to get Chemo (Chemotherapy) would impact on my House Sitting, but sadly it has.

Receiving Chemotherapy is hindering me to write posts and the newsletters

Receiving Chemo is also making me struggle to get to writing posts on this website. So you will now know why my posts are a bit erratic! I’m sorry for this.

Can you help me with any interesting news for my posts and the Newsletter?

I have been  hoping that House Sitters, House Swappers, from around the South Pacific, Australia, New Zealand regions, may be able to send me in some stories of their House Sitting exploits? You can do this by emailing them to me Here

Look out for more erratic posts, and another newsletter coming soon!

Keep your eyes open for another erratic House Sitting Club.com Newsletter. I promise to try and keep up with these posts and the newsletters as best as I’m able.
