Some problems to solve: I’m not on holiday but I feel like I’m on holiday; how much cleaning should a house sitter do; and was the dog helping me with the weeding – or just wee-ing?
I moved from the city to the country, from cool climate to the baking plains. I haven’t yet resolved some of my old habits. I need to take a leaf out of my mother’s book. First thing, most days, she is outside working in the garden well before breakfast.
The dog walking saga continues, and I come to grips with taking out the trash. Surprising how many memories are associated with rubbish dumps.
Five lessons from my first week of house sitting. Dog’s remember routine; throw out the junk food; get the caffeine intake sorted early; you can’t do everything at once … and its hot (which is not so much a lesson as an observation).
