I'm rather pleased I don't have a house sit at the moment. It is so cold right now - in fact the coldest June day in over 80 years. A good time to be at home.
Last year I went away with a friend for a couple of nights and a similar but not so severe cold snap made our first night very very uncomfortable. Last night the westerlies howled around the house and it was good to curl up on my own bed and keep warm.
The cold wind seems to penetrate all one's clothes - very hard to keep warm.
I've been looking at all the house sitting opportunties - but the dates and places are not suitable to me. It is hard when I am working right now.
