$300/week47 year old female

Hi, my name is Gertrude. I am 47 years old and undertaking a new journey in my life as I to prepare to graduate from university at the same time my youngest daughter graduates high school. I am seeking long-term, granny flat type accommodation closer to uni and work for the next three years and am looking for a long-term lease preferably, please. I study full-time at Griffith and I work part-time in the Valley so am hoping to find somewhere close to the train line. I share custody of my 15yo daughter with her dad and we are very good at co-parenting whilst being accommodating and flexible with each other’s schedules. We have been lucky to remain good friends since our separation 11 years ago. My daughter and I are verified and trusted housesitters with the TrustedHousesitters.com community and we love it. We love animals so I’m a bonus pet sitter for you if need be. I am very happy, optimistic, calm and quiet person by nature. I’m very much a homebody but can be run off my feet some weeks where I am hardly at home. My studies and my job requires me travel at times so secure parking is somewhat of a priority. I don’t drink or smoke and I don’t like to go out much as I don’t enjoy the binge drinking culture or feel safe at times. I prefer to watch a movie and relax on the couch with a bowl of popcorn. I’m an extremely private person so I don’t have parties. My home is a sacred space and I don’t let many into my sacred space. My focus is on my studies and fulfilling my dreams, now that I am in a position to do so. I’ve spent a lifetime caring for others, recently having cared for my Dad for the final 5 years of his life. I’m a caring and creative soul, a Musician, Singer, Published Writer, Songwriter, Actor, and Visual Artist (in training). I’m blessed to have a deep sense of community and an inherent need to do good and help others - Important values instilled in me by my parents. No one walks this earth alone. I have everything I need to furnish a home so I prefer unfurnished spaces but am flexible here. I was born and raised in the Atherton Tablelands so I am a country girl at heart. I loved my childhood and inherited my musical abilities from both sides of my family. My daughters also have been blessed with those gifts. I am so proud of my girls and I’m proud of the job I did raising them with the help of their Dad, and I acknowledge he is a fantastic Dad. If you’ve made the effort to read my bio, I’d really love to hear from you if you think I would be a great tenant for your granny flat. My current lease expires in early November 2021, so I am starting my search now in the hopes that someone would love to have me in their property. Sincerely, Gertrude.
