What Work Do You Do?

Some of my Call Ducks
Some of my Call Ducks

A few days ago someone asked me what I did for a living and I was at a bit of a loss to answer. This led me to thinking about what I do each day and I thought I would share it with readers.

My first job of the day is poultry keeper to my eighty plus birds, feeding, watering and checking them all. From there I move on to the horses, taking on my role as stud proprietor and groom.

This brings me to the late morning when I take up my next role as dog walker and freelance groom for a friend who works in an office (a "normal" person!) as I check his horse, dog and cat at lunchtime.

On to the next job, which is back to poultry keeper when I get back home because they all like to have afternoon treats. Not finished yet, I take up my office work - depending on what day it is I am accounts administrator, personal assistant, internet entrepreneur or writer and sometimes several of these. If only it ended there, but no, I return to poultry keeper as I clean housing and put the birds bed before taking up stud proprietor/groom duties again for evening stables.

Once the horses are settled I only have to take a trip round with the terrier to check the bird houses are safe and I can return to the laptop to finish anything outstanding from the afternoon.

Somewhere in amongst it all I manage to eat and do things like shopping, washing, cleaning and other such things. I sometimes wonder why I'm tired...............

Mext time someone asks you "What work do you do?" take a few minutes to think beyond your day job and you'll probably be surprised at what you do in a day!
