Thoughts of a Dog Therapist – Where Do The Weeks Go?

OMG it’s Thursday and I haven’t written this weeks blog!!!
This is the thought that usually pops into my head each week when I suddenly realise how much of the week has disappeared again.
I don’t actually know where my weeks go, I don’t have children so it’s not taken up with school runs and activities (or homeschooling as it is at the moment) but then I actually sit down and realise what I have to do in a week.

I have my own business and five days a week I’m out walking peoples dogs until lunchtime, then after lunch is when I book in the training walks or canine therapy sessions.
I also have my own animals to care for, 20 dogs, 2 cats, 3 ducks, 4 sheep and a goat tend to keep me quite busy!
There’s Bella’s daily physiotherapy exercises and then her Hydrotherapy and Physiotherapy visits.
Then there’s the dreaded housework 😩 the constant washing, hoovering, mopping of floors etc.
Then finally I have my other half Kev, he does tend to take care of me and most days he brings lunch back with him to make sure I eat, but he still needs a lot from me as well. He runs his own business and I do his invoicing and banking etc.
Sometimes I actually look forward to the dog walking for a rest!

But I’m not complaining at all. I absolutely love my life and I’m so thankful that I’m able to do all of the things I do. I’m lucky to be in a position to have the animals and to be able to run my own business and see it grow day by day during a pandemic. I’m also very lucky to have a supportive partner who just lets me get on with it and even bought me the van when my last job was going downhill to kickstart my business.

So if you’re like me and you’re wondering where your weeks go and why you’re not finding more time to do things and always doing them at the last minute then just take a second to think about what your life involves. I bet you’re actually doing bloody amazingly and getting that extra thing done however last minute is actually a small miracle.
