Hi,

It is almost Christmas so I decided to post a short video instead of writing a long post.

If you are thinking of a vacation and want someone to look after your home please visit our website and register as an owner. It is FREE.

Register as soon as you know your vacation dates, don’t leave it to the last-minute, as that way you will have a much better range of sitters to choose from.

If you want to be a sitter and to enjoy a rent-free vacation then we can also help.

Have a look at the website for the details. CLICK HERE

God bless you,

Ray

Research that could save your health, your job and your family.

Off on holiday

A few days ago I was reading news about research into the habits of  UK workers and their annual holidays. (For readers in the USA read holiday as vacation).

I saw 2 different news reports that looked at the same problem from slightly different points of view. below are extracts from them and links to the original articles.

The first article showed that not taking leave is causing serious problems.

British workers left ‘stressed, rundown and depressed’
because they are not taking enough holiday time.

Overworked Brits are being left stressed, depressed and rundown
because they are not getting enough holiday time.

That’s based on research which claims a third of employees are left failing to take their annual holiday allowance ………….  Mark Cropley, Professor of Health Psychology at the University of Surrey, added: “The research found that more than two thirds (68%) don’t get away for short breaks, however, mini breaks can be a great way to recharge the batteries, whether abroad or in the UK.
“Not only do they force us to distance ourselves physically from work, they can also give our brains a mental holiday and allow us to spend quality time with family and friends without the distraction of work.   http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/british-workers-left-stressed-rundown-7238571

The next article (dated 1st Nov 2017) tries to explain why leave time is not being taken.

Why UK Workers Are Not Taking All Their Annual Leave

The average worker in Britain still has six days to use up before the end of the year, which, if left unused, would mean a staggering 134 million wasted days as a nation. A third of employees have as many as 10 days still to use up, found the survey of 1000 workers by Jurys Inn.

The most common reason for having annual leave left? That’s also pretty surprising, given that being “like, ugh, so busy right now” has become a status symbol in our culture. The top explanation was not knowing what to do with the remaining days, the Mirror reported.

Other more optimistic employees (11%) purposely save up their holiday days until the end of the year with the aim of booking an exciting trip – only to find that by November there are no holidays available that tickle their fancy. A further 11% said they simply didn’t have enough money to spend on holidays.
If you’re among those with holiday still to use, with just two months of the year left, you may want to think about taking action or risk losing them altogether.   http://www.refinery29.uk/2017/11/179232/wasted-holiday-days-annual-leave-uk

Time Flies but Memories last

 

Time fliesOK please tell me where this year has gone……

It can’t be November already can it?

Christmas is just around the corner.

I was in a shop and they are starting to put out Christmas decorations.

Oh well, must be because I am getting older that time seems to fly so fast.

If you are planning to be away later this year (or indeed next year) and you would like us to find someone suitable to look after your house and if necessary your pets, free of charge, while you are away register as a Home Owner now. It will not cost you anything. It is FREE

Last Christmas was a little sad as a number of houses were only made available at the very last minute and by then sitters had made other arrangements.

Time flies but memories last

You can’t slow down time but you can use it to store up wonderful memories. Vacations are a time when many family memories are made.

Take a look at our website and see how we may be able to help you.

We have members all over the world. Some are wanting their home looked after and others are available to look after a home in return for a rent-free vacation.

We welcome both types.

God bless you,

Ray

I just had to share this picture. It came by email with a message saying:

Dog with luggage

Because I work for a Christian missionary society we could not have afforded it without your help.

Thank you for making such a difference.”

Do your family a favour

I was saddened to read a newspaper article that a friend sent to me. It is from The Independent 22nd June 2015.

Yes, I know it is 2 years old but I suspect that nothing much has changed since then.

Here is an extract from the article.

A simple break can help build families’ relationships with each other and improve children’s learning and behaviour in school

Holidays matter. They are our lifeline to sanity, a chance to step away from everyday life and reconnect with the people we love; a time to relax, to be the real us, or indeed to be whoever we want to be.

And once the sand has been washed from the toes, holidays can leave us with a suitcase of life-long happy memories.

Yet today in the UK at least 1.46 million families can’t afford a single day out together, let alone a holiday night away from home. In one of the richest countries in the world, nearly five million people haven’t even one day’s outing to look forward to.

Millions of British children this year won’t get to paddle in the sea, build a sandcastle or lick an ice-cream on a prom.

Nothing to report when they return to school in September.

No happy memories to sustain them through grim times.

So sad.
So damaging to family life.
So unnecessary.

Through Christian House Sitters you can enjoy a great holiday rent-free staying in a house, not a tiny hotel room. All you will need to pay for is your meals and if you want to you can prepare yourself if you want to so they will not cost more than they would at home.

If you are worried about leaving your own home unoccupied or if you have pets then we can even arrange for someone to look after your home and pets free of charge.

Do your family need some time away?

Would you like rent-free accommodation?

Would you like someone to look after your home and pets while you are away? Free of charge.

A short video of the past 3 months

Here is a short slide showing just a few of the houses around the world that we have been able to offer rent-free during the past 3 months.

Do you know anyone who may benefit from this wonderful opportunity?

What about you?Have a look at our website and contact me if you have any questions. CLICK HERE

  • Christian House Sitters is not a money making business but a ministry to support the work and people of God.
  • Christian House Sitters started in order to provide rent-free vacations for Christians and reliable House Sitters for home owners who need someone they can trust to look after their home, pets and garden.

  • House sitters are only charged £25 per year and in return for this many enjoy numerous rent-free vacations each year.

Don’t be jealous. You too could experience this.

As I looked out of the bedroom window this morning I looked at the lovely garden. The picture only shows about a third of the garden. It is almost like having a private park. What a blessing.

Just looking at it helped me to unwind.

No, it is not my garden. We are house sitting while the home owners are away on a vacation.

Out of interest, I looked online a few minutes ago and a house like this, in this area and at this time would normally be rented out for around £180 ($230) per night. We will be here for 20 nights so if we were renting it would have cost us about  £3,600  ($4,660).

So how much are we paying?  Nothing at all!!!

What do we get for that? A 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom house with someone who comes once a week to look after the grounds and a team of cleaners who also come once a week.

What do we need to do in return for staying here? Put out food in the bird feeders for the wild birds, water a few indoor plants and keep the house safe by keeping it occupied.

Now, in all honesty, not all houses made available through Christian House Sitters are to this standard. Most don’t have a team of cleaners or a gardener. Many will expect you to look after pets BUT in return, you get to live in a house not a stuffy, noisy, impersonal hotel room and you get it rent – free.

We have houses available all over the world.

So how can you enjoy somewhere like this? Simply register as a house sitter. It only costs £25 per year (all of which goes to support vulnerable children in a Children’s Home in Kenya) That is your only expense apart from your food and transport.

Ahh, but what if you are the home owner needing someone to look after your home and possibly your pets. Great! Register with us free of charge and we will try to find you a suitable sitter.

All the details about being a house sitter and getting a sitter for your home are on our website.

So in summary:

Christian House Sitters offers rent-free vacation accommodation to our members all over the world and if you need someone to look after your home and pets while you are away we can help there as well by finding someone suitable who will do it free of charge.

God bless you,
