Finding Myself...

Do you ever feel like that?? Like you've kind of lost your way a little...and maybe a little bit of who you are?? It's how I've been feeling just lately...I'm not entirely sure why...maybe I've been trying to live up to expectations...going a little out of my way to please others which isn't really who I am.

The problem is the more you do things that you wouldn't normally do then the more you keep doing it...the more you keep doing it the less of the real you there is left. I don't mean this to be a depressing post and yet i think it's coming over that way....but I'm not down...just the opposite....but I think I am only getting things back together now and remembering who I am.

I hate the fact that I've not been keeping up with my blog, and my gardening and knitting and other stuff I enjoy so I am going back to my basics...after all when I am happy then I am healthy and in control. I love organisation and I'be been losing that a bit lately as well so I am going to take back the aspects I love and drop those I don't and get myself back to my happy place.

It's been a long time coming but life is good right now..I have my health..and my family. These are the things that matter and with these things in my life I can move forward with a spring inmy step and organisation in my mind!!

That being said I have yet to start on the allotment but I am ready to get back into it and get things fact i am desperate for the better weather...I really hope we get a few decent days next week as it's half term and I can really get stuck in to both the garden and the allotment in preparation for the coming season.

I didn't get finished tidying up last year and the new greenhouse is still only a frame without glass but I'm not worried. I don't intend to make plans...just do what I can when I can and let the progress work at i's own pace and just be proud of any accomplishments I make.

I did pop down the allotment a couple of weeks ago on a rather sunny afternoon to have a quick look at the hives. Two were flying gloriously, the third was a little slow...could be a number of reasons for that but can't do anything about it with the weather still so cold....put some extra fondant in and cross my fingers is about as much as I can do with that one.

So enough waffling...I hope you are all well and I'm sorry for neglecting my favourite blogs for so fact I am going to peruse them as soon as I have finished writing this post but just before I go I will share a couple of pics with you as you have just read probably the most mundane post in history!!

Polly enjoying a bit of sunshine.
She is now just over 6 months old.

Enjoy your evening...I will be back soon...probably won't have much to say but you should be used to that by now!!


  1. Happy to hear you are getting back to what you love. And mundane is fine. Not every day is sunshine and sparkles so why should every post be?

  2. It's always good to look back and enjoy the things that you have achieved rather than worrying about the things that you have yet to do. Everything will get done in due course.

  3. I know exactly what you mean and I think it's great that you're going back to the basics of what makes you happy.
    Making a plan and working on a schedule doesn't often work for me and leads to disappointment so a little at a time doing what I can when I can is a great way to get things done. Those little accomplishments make you feel more successful.

  4. Life often goes off at tangents so it's important to reevaluate and get back on track like you're doing, it does make us happier if we're doing the things we love.

  5. Good to see you back. Still plenty of time to get things done at the allotment. I think that is a good philosophy to just do a bit at a time and things will get done in their own time. Enjoy getting back to the things you love.


keep it clean...keep it relevant...I look forward to reading your comments!!
