I’m Going To Find A Happy Place…

We headed back to Anglesey for a few days at the start of July and stayed at "The Barn". We had 3 dogs with us this time (Meg was boarding with us, so we took her for a little mini break). We had lovely weather (apart from the last day) and even went kayaking & body boarding in the sea (no pictures of us in wet-suits!). Yummy cream tea on the last day at the fabulous Giddy Aunt's Tea Room - amazing scones & such an inspiring lady! PS - I don't have much to say … [Read more...]

Chester’s 4th Birthday

Yesterday my lovely Chester was 4 years old! He had a lovely day - filled with all his favourite things - homemade pupcakes, new toys, treats and a trip to New Brighton beach. I am so glad that we got Chester - he has brought so much love & joy to our lives. He is a very handsome boy and is very gentle and loving (although he can be a bit stubborn - maybe just cos he's a man?!). Here are some pics from his day: Every birthday boy needs cake. Here he is with a pupcake between his paws … [Read more...]

#BEDM – Walk To Work

...Does walking down the stairs count?! I am sooo lucky to be able to work for myself doing what I love (walking lovely doggies). As such, I don't have a walk to work but I have lots of walks that I do during my working day. I adore being outdoors in the fresh air (even in the rain) and I am so grateful that I have lovely walks like this near me: … [Read more...]

#BEDM – Passion Projects

My passion project at the minute is getting my dog walking & pet sitting business set up. I am a MASSIVE animal lover. My pets complete my life, wholeheartedly. I wouldn't be without them. I would even go so far as to say I prefer the company of animals to people! Walking my own dogs every day - come rain, hail or shine always de-stresses me & makes me feel better about life. So is it not a good idea to make a business out of something you love? Here is a fab pic I got over the … [Read more...]

#BEDM – 5 Fave Posts

Oh dear, well none of my posts have been earth-shatteringly (?) interesting enough to really want to share again! However, my favourite place is Anglesey and I came across this post about our most recent trip there. It made me smile looking at the pictures. More Anglesey posts & pics HERE. … [Read more...]

#BEDN – The Great Outdoors

I was never really an outdoorsy person until I got the dogs! I walk them EVERY day, rain, hail, snow or shine. And I LOVE it. I love getting outdoors, especially when I don't feel like it, as 99% of the time I feel a million times better for going outside and spending time with my dogs. My favourite walks are long walks on the beach or in a forest. Of course, the dogs love it too! :) Some pics of them enjoying their walks: … [Read more...]

#BEDN – Motivations

I struggle immensely to get motivated. Some days I just want to stay in bed and hide from the world, but luckily I have 5 hungry animals who need me! They are 100% my motivation - to get up in the morning, to earn money to buy them food, toys & treats and to be able to take them nice places on holiday. And now that I have started my dog walking/pet sitting business (Cheshire PAWS), it motivates me knowing I am heading to look after or walk someone else's beloved pet. I would love to … [Read more...]

#BEDN – Day in The Life

The nature of my work means that every day is different (thank goodness). Here I have given a little snapshot of what my day was like yesterday: 7.30am - Rise & Shine. Usually woken up by 1 or 2 cats sitting on top of me awaiting their breakfast! Feed the cats & dogs. Shower. 8.30am - First dog walk of the day or exercise DVD. 10am - Breakfast (I find having it a bit later means I don't need a mid-morning snack before lunch time!) 10.30-12.30 - Check emails, computer work, … [Read more...]
