Everything that I said in my post back in January still applies. I want to go back to the roots of my blogging and make it more personal. So… how am I going? Well, clearly not blogging very often.
But how is everything else going?
The garden is looking pretty amazing at the moment. I’m really happy with it considering we are only in our first year. There’s plenty still to do, of course. However, we have a wild flower garden, fruit trees, vegetables, flowers. My most prolific plant has to be my courgette. My biggest disappointment are the gladioli which I had tied to support, and then a strong wind blew them so they snapped where I’d tied them.
Project INDEPENDENT INCOME
As you’ll remember from my post – Beginning at the Beginning, I started a new job in March for a children’s charity. I’m still really enjoying this job, and am getting to the point now where I can start to make suggestions to make it even better. Everything else has taken a bit of a back seat – writing, creating resources, crafting.
Project MAKE FRIENDS
I haven’t got very far with this yet. Hubby and I are now joint Membership Secretary at the Canoe Club, so that’s a start; I’ve made friends with one of Miss Busy’s friends’ mum; I’ve been along to a sea swim with the Bluetits group, but that’s about all. I’d really like to start going to Edible St Austell, and I’m thinking about starting an activity group doing different things.
Project ACTIVE ADVENTURE
There has been plenty of adventuring:
- theatre and music – The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain at Hall for Cornwall, Seth Lakeman at the Minack, Romeo and Juliet at Penlee Park Outdoor Theatre and The Tempest at St Austell Arts Centre
- cliff walks,
- sea swimming,
- a seafari and
- We’ve been to Brittany for a week with the campervan at Easter,
- and we’re off to the NW USA later in the Summer
I still need to work on my fitness. It’s still not anywhere near where I’d like it. I just get tired, and busy, and… I really need to make it a priority.
