I realise what a long time it is since I last wrote a post but life has been so hectic over December that by the time evening has come I have just wanted to relax and sitting at the computer hasn't seemed very appealing at all, but now with a break and all the shopping and nearly all the wrapping done I find myself being a little more relaxed and not so rushed at all.
We had a couple of weeks of cold spell with hard frosts and sub zero temperatures but I was quite happy with that, today and for the past week or so the weather has been nasty, and damp and it's looking like a dreary dark Christmas for us weather wise. Having said that at least the house is decorated with pretty sparkly lights and the lounge is cosy with a warm glow.

My Hubby just asked me why I was taking photo's of the tree, I told him for my blog and he said, 'But I thought it was about the allotment??' I told him that it is but the pictures are far nicer of the tree that the dreary weather outside, he replied with, 'But that's real and the tree's not'. I guess he's right in a way but my blog has become more than just about my allotment and has become about the person I am and I like that little personal touch so to him I just say..' :-P '!!
So are you all ready for Christmas?? I think it is one of the busiest times of the year trying to get everything sorted and remember all the little things even busier in a way than the Spring planting as you are so tidied to a deadline on everything there is more pressure to it. I know it's supposed to be a joyous occasion but it certainly has that element of stress that I don't think you can really stop no matter how hard you try. Having said that I do enjoy thinking about what to get people and adding little personal touches to things!. I was really late with a lot of things this year and wonder if my Christmas cards will reach people before the event....if not they will know after Christmas that I have been thinking of them!!
I never did quite get the winter dig finished on the allotment before the cold spell hit with a vengeance , that was mainly due to not being well but I know that I can get it finished early in the springtime. I haven't done any work up the allotment at all but i was up a few times last week as I was looking after someones chickens for a few days. They belong to the Chair of the Committee and his Wife and to be honest I felt quite pleased that they had the trust in me to ask me. Plus they said I could keep any laid eggs so I think we will be having omelette's for lunch today!!
Even though I haven't written for ages I do have lots to tell so will hopefully get caught up on that over the Christmas period, but feel free to ignore my posts if you get to fed up with me!!
Well I guess that will be it for now ...time to go and catch up with all of you and see what has been happening in the big wide world I think.
Hope you all have a lovely Christmas whether you choose to have elaborate busy ones or close relaxed family ones.
Merry Christmas to all my readers. Enjoy the holiday.
