Helping my wife pet sit

Some of you know my wife has her own pet sitting business. This year has been an incredible start for her, she has had many, many bookings. To a point where she's now struggling to keep up. This is both a good thing and a bad thing because she has a full-time job, she's trying to juggle her job and business together. She now has to turn business down and she feels bad for doing so. Another issue with pet sitting, you can't charge too much at least not yet. Because if she did, she would then get fewer clients, it's all about building a base, and then growing from there.

Roarfit (Newton Abbot Crossfit) Review

I've been going to Roarfit for over 3 years, and I believe a blog review is long overdue. I started going before it was called Roarfit, it started off as Newton Abbot Crossfit. When I first started, I was nervous because I didn't know anyone. I didn't even know what Crossfit was until I started. It all began because I took my cat to the vets and I saw a bunch of girls and guys flipping tyres.

Appreciation Post

As it's a Monday, and Monday's can usually bring us down. I thought I would use this post as a way of appreciation. I want to thank all of my blog, email, Twitter followers, friends and family. Without you reading my blog and the support you give, I probably wouldn't have created so many posts in such a short time-span.

Play Pick My Postcode (free)

For the past 2 months, I've been playing Pick My PostCode. It's much like the Postcode Lottery, except it's completely free. They get their money through paid advertisements. So far, I've won nothing as my postcode has yet to appear, but if you sign up, you might be lucky. My friend has won a tenner here and there. However, he still checks each day as you could win over £1,000.

Winning Spirit of the gym at my CrossFit box

Coming into my Crossfit box this morning for a workout and thinking nothing of it. That's until my coach, Matt announced that someone had one the Spirit of the gym award who didn't turn up for last night's social. He announced my name, and I was actually shocked! Honestly, I couldn't believe that all my Crossfit friends would vote for me. It's truly an honour to win, and it made me incredibly happy to win.
