Ahhh what lovely weather its been, the welly's came off and the walking boots were back on and when i was just doing Mobile Cattery visits the flip flops even came out. Which did mean i had to give a little TLC to my feet, after all the months of wet weather and just wearing wellington boots, you do forget to pretty up your toe nails. I have to give you a mental visual of how i look when its a wet day...I have my black water proof Jacket on, uniform of black fred perry top and combat trousers, wellys and i wear my cap, which is a bakers boy style, its black and i like it, however i did get mistaken for a man twice on one day??? oh my goodness, not a confidence booster that !! The pet service is hard work and a physical dirty job at times, still i dont think i look like a man...do I ?? oh eck. To be fair the first confused person was only looking at my back as i was leaning in the car tying the dogs in...he called me MATE when asking me a question, when i turned around and looked at him he saw i was female ! the second time it was the early evening and we had finished for the day and weekend so popped into a lovely country pub for a well earned pint of Guiness,still in uniform, i was following paul from the bar and i was putting my phone away ( again head down, cap on ) when a man let us pass and said there you go FELLA'S, so i looked up wondering who he was talking too then realised it was us....thankfully on both of these mistaken identity moments i had my lippy on and false lash mascara so these chaps could then tell i wasnt a DUDE. It made me chuckle though and i got apologies when they did see that i was LADY
I hope you all have a lovely Easter Break, we are already in the swing of things with the services, its a very busy time for the Mobile Cattery Service and Small Pet Visiting. The Easter bunny will be leaving some treats for the clients for when they return. The Dog Walking service is still busy only a few dogs have gone on their holidays. We have Kirk our new Dog Walker in training and he is enjoying meeting some of the Gateshead Dogs that he will have on his round.
Bye for now
