I am so sorry to my loyal readers… I have been having a fortnight from hell and I have not been able to get onto my computer to crank out a blog post. I do apologise… however, there are good reasons for the lack of communication.
First of all, it is the time of year when there needs to be a lot of work done in the garden. This year, being our second growing season in this garden, we have more work to do than usual! I have been planting up a storm since January and I am now taking care of the baby plants the best way I can. There are some which are already out in our little lean to green house, hardening off before they get put out into the soil, and then there are the ones I am trying to germinate. They are currently in the conservatory, and they seem to be doing okay in there, soaking up whatever sun there is!
We have taken out an old box hedge, we have painted the shed and the big greenhouse, we have taken possession of the big greenhouse and are planning what we are going to grow in it and we have begun to dig what will be the vegetable patch. We have raised beds to paint, we have dwarf fruit trees to plant, we have strawberries to revive and plant, we have raspberries and other soft fruit to fertilise and weed around. We have a compost heap to sort out as well and the flower beds all need weeding and getting sorted for the annuals and bulbs to show off later on.
Are you tired yet?!
Well, add into the mix of this, that the Adoption is beginning to get tricky as well. Not with the actual process… that is meandering about the way it does. But my patience is wearing very thin indeed. I needed to think very carefully about whether I wanted to continue with the process and what was I going to do if it didn’t work. Although everyone thinks that there is always a payoff of a baby when you go through the Adoption process, the facts are somewhat different and it is in no way guaranteed. Our process has already been so long and so difficult (and out of the ordinary – of course… I never do anything the easy or the ordinary way!) I am not sure how much more I am going to be able to take. It has been quite stressful and difficult as I am sure you can all imagine. There wasn’t much other head space for anything else, let alone sorting out blog posts.
All I can promise is that I will try and do better after Easter. I will even try and sort out some blog themes and interesting things to post about… and I need to get back to my studying. I haven’t done any lessons for weeks.
Happy Easter to everyone, and see you on the other side!
