And for my second blog of the day we are going to have a celebration.

My last blog was all serious and a bit of a worry.  This one is much more upbeat.  All the while that I have been pacing myself with my blogs, keeping up with my gardening endeavours and not spending too…

It’s the shortest day… Well I think it is…

I haven’t gardened in ages!

And it shows. The last thing I did was dig over the garlic bed two weeks ago!  I haven’t even had a chance to check the “to do list” to see what I’ve not been doing.  Luckily it’s not as…
