It may seem that I have been quiet on the blogging front on Sim’s Life this week, but I can assure you it has been anything but quiet!
A break away from the normal routine has meant that I have actually been puppy sitting this week, alongside typing away at my laptop and it has been totally full on! My own dog Honey, who you will have seen on the blog and Instagram before is an old timer now, so sleeps most of the day… Oh Wow, how I had forgotten what it’s like to look after a puppy!
My Week Puppy Sitting A Springer Spaniel
My companions this week have been a super cute 9 week old Springer Spaniel and his 5 year old big brother – they don’t answer back and have let me get on with my work for the most part, but blimey is the puppy jumpy! Springer Spaniel’s are renowned for being highly energetic dogs and I have to admit to enjoying the peace and quiet when the youngster is asleep and the chance to get an unaccompanied bathroom visit! I am pretty sure at times if the older dog could roll his eyes he probably would!
It’s amazing to see them both developing with each other and as an older dog, I can imagine it’s hard to share what has been your own territory for so long with a puppy who is very jumpy and likes to bite!
I may not have been able to fully concentrate on writing my usual meaningful, well thought out posts, however it does mean I have been able to take a step back and work on the back end maintenance. Checking backlinks that may have expired is time consuming, as is going through images, adding alt text, catching up with emails and sprucing up older posts. I am a total glutton for punishment with several sites, including Manchester Mummy which needs some TLC at the moment to look after. Although I have found a renewed vigour for Travel Guide Blog this week and have included some new content and spent time commenting, something which always evades me.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my working week so far, it has been much more productive than I imagined and I’ve managed to squeeze in puppy cuddles! There are times when I really love my job and this is definitely one of those times! 🙂
