I’m back! Did you miss me?!
I had my full day of horticulture exams on Monday, so revision time is over and I’ve emerged, blinking, into the sun, like a little mole reappearing after a winter of hibernation. (Disclaimer: previous sentence may not be factually accurate. I’m not that sure that moles do hibernate, nor, in fact, could I really be described as particularly similar to a mole…)
My exams were harder than I was expecting, but hurroo hurray, they’re all over now and normal life can resume. A life where I don’t feel obliged to spend every second of free time reading up about fertilisers or how to T-bud a rose…
So normal blog posting will recommence this week, with all the half-written posts I’ve had sitting in my drafts for the past month. Oh, I’ll probably try and finish them first though.
I have to confess, though, it’s not all been revision revision revision over the last few weeks.
I went out elderflower picking a fortnight ago and made some lovely cordial (recipe to follow one day this week):
I amused myself hugely putting my partner’s sunglasses on my baby for a father’s day card. (The card read: When I grow up, Dad, I want to be just like you…)
And I massively neglected all the plants in my garden and house, but some of them managed to pull through, nonetheless, including these glorious cornflowers. (No time for gardening when you’re revising for gardening exams!)
Oh, and I managed to squeeze a bout of food poisoning in there too, but that’s not a particularly photogenic event…
So, tell me, what have I missed since while I’ve been gone?
