    January 2020 Garden

    This was supposed to be part of my overall January post but as you can see it got quite long. The mild winter (so far) has meant that there are plants budding all over the garden. There is a standard rose about to flower in my front garden!

    This month has felt very long, which is probably why I’ve been able to write this post on the 28th. Already settled back into the routine of Crochet & Residential Care Home Classes, in the latter we were making pictures to fit into fridge magnet photo frames. In between classes I’ve been busy crocheting and even a little gardening.

    Nearly forgot to do this post, the “annual review” ticked off the “I’ve summarised stuff” in my head, but thanks to my second year of Bullet Journalling I’m being slightly more organised.

    2019 Review

    Last year’s review was quite useful in helping me set targets so I’m giving it another go. 2019’s Targets Continue classes at Wool Haven and residential homes In 2018 7 sets of beginners classes & 1 intermediate  at the Wool Haven A full year of residential home classes at 5 homes plus a new one started in September. 2019 was disrupted slightly by a house move but we still managed to squeeze in 7 sets of beginners and 2 mornings each of Tunisian and Amigurumi introductions.

    A walk in the garden

    We’ve recently moved and our new home has a much larger garden. I come from a family of gardeners and have a lot of plans for this space.

    Another month has flown past and that’s still my excuse for the delayed post. Which is additionally embarrassing as it’s such a short one. ? I had hoped to complete all the squares for my flower blanket but due to classes, impromptu furniture painting and a lost crochet hook I’m about a week behind where I should be.
