.....Well it is when you have nothing much to say and manage avoid writing a totally boring topic-less post like I did for so long. But alas...it will come to you now as we are nearing the end of January and this is my first posting of 2013....seriously only the second time I have written that date too so i am impressed I keep getting it right!!!
So why haven't I written anything?? Well it's not that there wasn't anything too write...there is always 'stuff' to be said whether it's on or off topic of the blog but the fact is there is nothing going on down the allotment and if I'm perfectly honest I haven't even been down since before Christmas as everything is at that stand still time of year and I so badly want to get started and at the moment it just isn't possible!!
So I just avoided everything 'allotmenty' for a while and played my game instead....which incidentally is about farming and growing crops and stuff so I guess I couldn't totally leave it alone. I was told by a work colleague last week that I 'Need to get out more.'....and I am in total agreement with them, it's high time the weather picked up and I could get back down the allotment> Another colleague told me how they had been watching 'Allotment Wars' on T.V. and thought of me. Guess it's nice that they take the time to think of me out of the workplace!!
So we are already on the 4th Sunday in January which means that next week will be taking us into the second month of the year...kind of scary how quickly the time goes by but I guess it's no quicker than normal....just seems that way when you can't get on with the things you really want to.
We saw the new year in with some mild weather and I remember saying to my Hubby the first weekend of the month how if i didn't know better I would think it was mid April. Of course all of that changed as the cold snap enveloped us and the snow hit. It wasn't too much snow to be honest, and I certainly didn't get any time off work for it, although somehow the bin men managed to get a week off and I was told by the local council that my bin would not be collected for a fortnight due to health and safety. Funny how they didn't give everyone the time off and pay them....surely the rest of the towns safety was at risk?!?! OK, rant over and moving and moving on.....( just so you know apparently it's been that long since I typed anything I keep hitting the 'caps lock' button instead of 'a'...how bad is that!!)
Anyway the weather warmed up yesterday and for the first time in a week and a half I saw my garden....WHAT A MESS!!!....please come back snow!
I'm not a fan of the snow...but it does mange to brighten up the winter a little. Of course if it just thawed I would be out there getting on with something...but no it has to warm up and pour with rain and get windy all at the same time. You just have to love Mother Nature!!
Hhhmmmm....With all that said I now sit here wondering what to write. I do actually have a few things up my sleeve but nothing that should be put in this post to be honest. Also I need to get back into putting up some recipes....and talking about seeds and gardens and nature and taking photos. I'm sure it will all come flooding back to me very shortly and I will get into the swing of things again.
I really should have got out with the camera during the snow......maybe got finished knitting that cardigan.......or planning what to plant.....guess there is some stuff to get done so I will leave you all alone now (breather a sigh of relief!) but I will be back later in the week with some good news...until then.
(See I told you silence was golden!!)
Oh hope you all enjoyed whatever way you chose to celebrate the New Year coming in.
