    February has been quite busy for a short month, it doesn’t seem five minutes since my last post!

    It’s almost half way through July and we’re still living in Groundhog Day. I’ve still been keeping myself busy in the garden and kitchen which has lead to this post being delayed. I find it’s the best way for me to cope, I don’t think about the “old normal” and I certainly don’t plan for the new, I’m just grateful that I have space to lose myself in, whether it is knocking back a batch of bread or weeding a border.

    This month seems to have gone faster, although I’m still finding it difficult to differentiate between individual days. The good weather makes lockdown easier, you’re never bored with a garden and I am immensely grateful for that

    Seems ages since my last monthly update, I’m finding lockdown throws out my sense of time. Weeks blur together without the normal routine of school and work.

March was, well, we all know how March was. I’m at home most of the time anyway and but being told not to go out makes something I’m normally happy with an uncomfortable fit. On the plus side being stuck at home has meant I’ve been able…

    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.
