Best workday ever!

My employer gives everyone a paid volunteer day. For me, there was no question of the type of work I wanted to do - I wanted to work at an animal shelter.

I’ve spent today at one close to me. I walked dogs, I cleaned catteries, and I washed food bowls. It might not sound exciting, and perhaps it isn’t, but it’s hard work and so rewarding. I am knackered after being on my feet all day - what a difference from sitting in front of a screen - and feel like I have made someone’s day - several someones’. Such happy dogs who got their walks and delighted kittens who had someone to pet them for a moment.

This is what life’s about.
