So lets get back to catching you all up....I will tell you all some things I got up to but bare in mind these are in no particular order as i will probably just waffle to you all for a while and hope it brings you up to speed!!
I did mange to get a bit of work done on the allotment and now have seeds growing in the greenhouse that will soon need hardening off and there are root veggies in the ground but I am far from finished and probably a little behind planting wise but I'm sure things will catch up.
Of course the rain has been quite aggressive at times over the last couple of week which means the weeds have gone rampant again so I will have to get my back into hoeing at some point this week!!
I went to a friend of a friends for a free facial which was wonderful and some lovely product were used of which I treated myself to a few!!
I managed to get a couple of novels read...I love to read and find it relaxing to fall into a totally different reality at times...especially when the rain won't cease!!
My friend Juliette took on a new allotment this year and it was in quite a state and then she had so much work to get done that i surprised her by popping down one evening and rotovated it over for her so that it was ready for planting. She was really pleased when she found out and I was happy to help!!
This seems quite long winded and I have barely covered anything....bare with me whilst I go get my camera and lets see if we can find a few pictures to share....
I helped out at an open apiary with Grantham District Beekeepers and we had a glorious day for it and then went for tea and cake after to the Chairman's house. It was a great day and gave people who are currently on the course the chance to get interactive with the bees!
With the weather so unpredictable it hasn't been difficult to get a decent amount of work done down the allotment but things are in hand and slowly taking shape....
Did I really do so little?? Oh, I remember something else I did...
I made some bee sun catchers. These were some first off and not the final cuts but the finished ones will 'bee' along these lines (I know...really lame joke!!). Anyway, this year Grantham District Beekeepers are having a stall at Grantham carnival and so I offered (in my totally dumbass moment) to make some to sell. So far i have made about 65...only another 20 to go!! Then I just have the honey jars to decorate....I really do make myself a lot of work at times!!
On top of all that I have been sorting out membership and BDI stuff which will be of no concern or interest to you believe me but none the less it all takes time along with the usual day to day rubbish of washing, cooking, cleaning, working yadayadayada....we all know the drill!!
Oh just to finish off though...yes I am going to stop boring you all to tears now..I did go out for the day yesterday...Took my parents as My Mum's birthday treat to Burghley Game and County Fair.
It was quite a nice day out and they had some great falconry displays on so I will leave you with a nice pic...
I really am sure there was more to my absence but right now it escapes me...but don't worry, I'll be back as soon as I remeber!!!! LOL
