Well what can I say, two posts in one month is not good. I had started the year so well and really enjoyed blogging regularly but with one thing and another this month has just flown by. Here is a little run down of where my time has gone.

  • Work, joining http://www.notonthehighstreet/ has taken up most of my time, oh and the lovely new addition of a mountain of stock that then needs to be photographed with my swish new SLR camera, wow it is amazing to use, hence me taking hundreds of photos compared to my usual few. I love photography, a passion I discovered when I started up the website. But this did then equate to three times the amount of editing. Then all that needs to be added to the website etc... a job I have yet to get round to finishing. Oh and there is even more stock arriving which will need to go through the long process. Fingers crossed for some lovely sunshine but at the moment that doesn't look very likely (rain and dull grey clouds here).

  • Having fun. It was my birthday the other week so a great excuse for meals out with friends and family. Not to mention fun days out with Ella at half term.

  • Gardening, not much but enough to keep me happy, lots of prep for the year ahead. We will be planting our seeds tomorrow ( Ella and me that is), we have decided that we are going to grow our own veg and salad things this summer. Only a small amount of space but that wont stop us. Vine tomatoes, lettuce, peppers, carrots, spring onions oh and Ella's favourite runner beans.

  • Being ill, oh how I hate it, especially when I have a huge to do list.

  • Making lots of things for orders through the website.

  • A house that never stays tidy no matter how much I try.

  • The gym... the one place I can completely switch off and relax mentally. I gain so many benefits from going so was rather down when my back was playing up. Fingers crossed it has been ok recently.

When you write it down like that there really isn't very much, but boy do they all take time up.

Ella is asking for a drink... for the tenth time that is, so I really better get off and sort one out. Bye for now...

I know how life gets in the way of everything you are trying to achieve. Let us know how you get on with Notonthehighstreet. I am planning on spending tomorrow in the garden!

Your life sounds just like miNe Faye! Just nice to hear from you, don't worry about how often you post. Lovely photos as ever, (what a nice planter with the heather)
Enjoy the seed planting. I'm rubbish with seeds, I shall watch and learn!
Have a fun weekend.

I know how you feel, I was full of good intentions when I started my blog too but seem to have fallen by the wayside! Never mind,your blog friends will still be here whenever you have time to spare, it's nice to hear what you've been up to.

Glad you had a nice birthday faye - I have a little something for you I was meaning to post, so it may need to be an Eater pressie instead (sorry!). Thanks for the comments about my flowers - I was pleased with them but no matter what I did I couldn't get a decent picture of them in the evening - roll on summer eh?

Hi Faye, you've been busy! I discovered a great thing about housework... no-one seems to notice when I do the housework and no-one would dare to complain if I didn't, in case I suggested that they do it instead!
Chat soon, Liz
