Where did that go??

I am of course referring to the last two weeks!! I had a week off work and now I've been back at work a week and I can't believe the time has gone by so quick.

I wouldn't mind not posting if I had nothing to write but I Have plenty in my head to tell you (even though you may not want to!) but the time has just run away. I mean can you believe that it's March next week?? It really has gone fast this last two months.

On the plus side the days are getting longer again and as I leave work i can see it's a little lighter in the horizon which is a really nice sight!!

Today is lovely...beautiful in fact compared to yesterday's storm Doris, Hope everyone got through it mostly unscathed! I had to do a quick emergency repair to a fence before it a0 destroyed the neighbour's car and b)meant Polly could have an unsupervised walk.

Apart from that everything is fine at home though I have to admit to not going and checking out the allotment yet to see if there is any damage, I didn't see any beehives fly past the window and the wind was heading my way from the allotment so I hope they are all fine too...we have had worst winds and they have been fine so fingers crossed.

I have took the opportunity to get in the garden a bit this morning with the weather being rather was actually great to get out in the elements after being cooped up all day yesterday...I do hate being stuck inside all the least I hate it when you have no choice but to be stuck inside!!

Wow, all that and I still haven't really said anything..though to be honest all the other stuff going round needs breaking down into separate posts so it's noether long winded or gibberish. This I am going to attempt tonight after work...right now I am just sitting waiting for dinner to cook and the hubby to get home from work so thought I would touch base with everyone. I will however give you a brief list of what has been keeping me so busy!!

Housework...there's always plenty of that but some major cleaning was needed so I got on top of things last week but that kind of takes a lot of time...I find it very satisfying though!!

Polly...well she always keeps me busy...but it's always a wonderful busy and I do love the lengthy walks across the fields with her. She is great with her recall now so gets plenty of time off lead to run around and chase the birds!!

The bee course...this is running again this year and starts next week..eek...I'm not a student on it though but I am teaching one of the sessions...which I have yet to finish writing...just as well I'm not teaching the first course!!

Helping out a fellow beekeeper.

Garden remodelling.

Getting distracted but the life that is coming back with the seasons changing.

Postal deliveries!

Just spending time with family, I always make sure I have room for is after all one of the most important and my all time favourite things (That is when I'm not wanting to murder the children!!)

So there you have it...plenty to tell you about which I am going to tell you all in due course.

It's a bit wordy this post isn't it?? Hang on...let me get a few pics for you to look least it will be finishing on a less boring note!!

Okay, just snapped a few randoms for you.

Just one of the beautiful dozen Red Roses that the
Hubby sent me for Valentines!!

A beautiful and very sleepy Polly!

Crocuses are starting to bloom!

and the daffodils too, really letting us
know that spring is on it's way.

...and not forgetting our beautiful Alfie who so often
get's overlooked in my posts, 'Sorry Alfie'!!


  1. We were lucky Doris just skirted past us - we had worse nameless wind early in the week.

  2. Welcome back again! I look forward to all your upcoming posts.

  3. Everyday life getting in the way of blogging is what has been happening to me too. I wish my dog would face the camera like that. She always makes a point of looking away.

  4. I'm glad everything is calm after storm Doris passed your way and I hope the allotment has remained unscathed too. All your photos speak of happy moments for you and your household and surroundings although I'm sure you lead a busy life. All the best with the beekeeping course and your involvement in it.


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