I like structure and this is evident in the way I organise my blogging activities. A two-hour commute to work gives me a chance to draft the following weeks’ posts. Then on Wednesday evenings I’ll tweak them while my other-half is playing video games with Ben; and on Saturday mornings when he’s at work, I’ll get them uploaded and sort out any images.
I also like cats, and since adopting her almost three years ago Zelda has become my furry blogging assistant. When I’m sitting at the table with my laptop she can usually be found lounging next to it – when she’s not walking across the keyboard and trying to get my attention, that is. She also tends to be not too far away whenever we’re streaming and sometimes makes an appearance on camera. Her latest trick is to sit directly in front of Pete while he’s trying to play The Division 2, which is annoying for him but also kind of cute.
Everyone likes posting pictures of their pets on social media and I’m no different. If Zelda’s doing something cheeky while I’m blogging, I’ll usually add a photo to Instagram or Twitter and this has caused several friends to ask whether she’s going to start a site of her own. For a bit of Friday fun – as well as an excuse for sharing more cat pictures – here is some examples of the furball’s finest work.
