We're both psychologists. Bob is an academic, a longterm professor at University of Southampton; Sue is a clinical prof, with great experience of working in NHS services for mental health, as well as honorary university appointments.
Now we're both semi-retired, but we keep our hand in very occasionally with some teaching, consultancy and writing work. Although we miss the conference travel - we loved our trips the USA and Australia! - we still get away whenever we can in Europe and further afield.
At home, we love gardening, reading, cooking, and cultural activities.
We have now acquired a beautiful, well behaved cockapoo dog - Chloe - who will accompany us on our travels/exchanges. We are using our psychological skills to ensure she is a well behaved dog, who will respect your home. We also have a cat - Tabitha - who will remain in our home. Tabitha has her own cat flap, automatic feeder and water fountain and is essentially self sufficient, only requiring an occasional stroke.
We're lucky enough to have an annex that's separate from the house that we've listed. This means that if we're not travelling, we can sometimes nevertheless make the house available, and if necessary decamp to the smaller space.
We've always done home exchanges, so we're used to hosting like-minded people: it gives us great satisfaction to hear from guests how much they have enjoyed their visit to our home.
