Hi there, I am Olivia!
I hope this message finds you well and if you’re reading this that’s already a brilliant sign so thank you for being here! I am a considerate, mature, independent dreamer, who mostly enjoys the company of animals, trees, a pen, a sandwich, a book, or a new person to chat with. I am fascinated by other peoples views and am very open to what everyone has to share.
I love the peace in being outdoors whatever the weather, so I enjoy walking with a dog, swinging in a hammock in a forest and being beside the sea. I have an adaptable nature, in an ‘on’ setting I am very enthusiastic, playful, eager to listen and learn and might talk your ear off 😉 but in an ‘off’ setting I really appreciate quiet, stillness and privacy, which is probably why I often say I prefer animals over humans, because I can be with them at all times! I am really grateful to any pets or animals that need or want my company. I love music and dancing but I appreciate the calmer moments in life and don’t usually party or drink.
All my professional experience lies in all things hospitality - where I have 10 years experience in front of house and housekeeping (ranging from hotels/restaurants/cafe/pubs/sport clubs), child minding, recipe development and teaching English (short term) but the rest of my life experience is with animals, cooking (vegetarian/vegan food), creating, writing, meditating, exploring, lending a hand with whatever was happening! I am solution oriented so nothing is impossible, and I like to think I am a fast learner and am great at getting on with the job. I like to keep a tidy space and clean up after myself.
I believe children are gateways to knowledge we have forgotten, so I am always blessed to sit and play with children, and try and encourage their exploration and just listen to what they have to say. I can have fun with them and be responsible, and try my best to be a great role model.
Animals really are a highlight of my life and I have loved being able to care for them in different settings around the world (animal welfare centres, house sits, adoption agencies, my own animals). I have a lot of sympathy and patience for their sometimes traumatic lives and hope I can help them in any way to have a better experience in the end. Mostly my experience is with cats and dogs, though all animals are absolutely certain to feel my love for them.
I eat a rather varied diet of predominantly vegetables but it changes day to day depending on a range of factors, I know this may be inconvenient for many people so I usually try to feed myself if that is okay with you. And if you feel like enjoying some good food I can cook for you!
I try not to use chemical and unnatural products, and I am conscious of my footprint on this earth, what I take I use wisely and I do not take long in the shower ha ha.
My current bigger dream: to offer modest sustainable housing in an eco-estate-concept! Think yurt community! I’d love to hear your thoughts on life and share a cup of tea or go for a wander! If you’ve any questions please just shout, I know I might seem a bit quirky - I am! But I can promise I’m hardworking, conscientious and you will not regret taking me on.
😁 Thanks for the chance!

Régime alimentaire spécial
I eat predominantly vegetables but depending on the day, weather, mood, I eat whatever I want. It is therefore much easier for all if I can feed myself
