Hello everyone! Since it's a drizzly grey August day, I thought I'd turn on my laptop and update you all on my current doings. If you follow me on Twitter and Instagram, you'll know that I'm currently at Luke's house puppy sitting the family's new addition, Woody. He's a beautiful black labrador with a penchant for tormenting slugs, attempting to chew anything in sight (wires, my iPhone, my favourite cardigan and sandals being his favourites) and waking up at the crack of dawn. He's extremely lucky that he is heartbreakingly gorgeous because it makes it difficult to stay infuriated with him for long! As you can imagine, puppy sitting takes up a lot of man hours so that probably explains why I've been quiet here at Viva for a few days! Anyone got any puppy advice/tips they think they should share with me? Feel free to leave it below. I'm going to be chilling out here for the next few days, watching the world go by and appreciating the silence of the countryside.
In other news, my health has been taking a little bit of a knock recently so I'm now taking even more tablets to try and stabilise it all. I'm pretty sure that people will soon be able to hear me rattling along before I actually come in to view. I do have to say a little shout out to the poor doctor who had to deal with me bawling my eyes out in his presence! He coped extremely well and soon the conversation turned to the Famous Five and our mutual fear of Uncle Quentin! I just take each day as it comes where my health is concerned - good days are often followed by 'oh god I can't move I'm in so much pain' days so it's difficult to really make plans, as such. Having said that, some of my closest friends from the old Sixth Form days are coming round this coming weekend for takeaway food, a movie and a chance to meet the little puppy so I'm pretty excited for that! Everyone seems to be growing up so much these days: announcements of engagements, babies birthdays and house moves are all commonplace on my Facebook feed of late. Does anyone else ever think 'Uh oh, time to get my shit together?!'.
Once everything has settled a little, I'll be sure to post some interesting things over here on Viva! Anyway, I'm going to leave this little update here because Woody is currently dragging my laptop bag off to his lair. If you'd like regular updates from me then please feel free to follow me on Twitter and Instagram - it's a lot easier to send a small tweet than to blog when my eyes are always on the pup! I'm off to do a little more puppy sitting and do some serious blog reading - leave me some of your links in the comments if you'd like! ♥
