Key Under Blue Pot and Please Milk the Goat
This is a fictional account in the form of a humorous diary, written by Jean whose job is to stay in people's houses and care for their gardens and animals. Rarely do the house-sits go smoothly. Usually something goes wrong. In addition, Jean's children cause her angst, and her much-married sister and her in-laws add to her stress. The diaries are written in England, Wales and New Zealand.

Jean is a house-sitter. She travels around mainland Britain, looking after people’s houses, gardens and pets while they are on holiday. The animals she cares for range from chickens to goats, snakes to tortoises and innumerable cats and dogs.
Encounters with a panty nicker, a bigamist and an alcoholic septuagenarian and more, cause her grief. An indifferent husband, computer hacker son, multi-married sister and in-laws make for a comic look at life.
