Well now Dear Reader, Spring is in the air and all is well with the world. My absence here, not that I’m sure any of you noticed, has been due to having other fish to fry elsewhere which have been taking up lots of time.
I have long harboured a desire to make my bits of scribblings more than they are and I have been working hard to get myself out there to whoever is interested. This has been one of the most frustrating things in the known universe as it seems that these days, e mails and voicemails are things to be summarily ignored and there are very few people who bother to get back to you even if it’s only to say that they aren’t interested.
Finally though, after much wailing and gnashing of teeth, things have been slowly getting themselves together. I have been asked to write a gardening piece for a new digital magazine, have written some ad copy, have had a piece published on a ‘writers for writers’ website and may have got myself a copy writing gig. I have to say, that most of this success can be laid firmly at Twitter’s door. What a useful little tool that has proved to be and considering the fact that I only really started to use it properly in January, has reaped me much reward.
So things are moving forward. Slowly but surely. The ‘big’ project has ground to a bit of a halt as I wait for various people to do various things which is beyond frustrating and beyond my control. But I shall keep plugging away and hopefully get it on the move again. So it’s been a busy time. The holiday let is booked up for pretty much the whole of the Summer which will keep us out of mischief and the house like a Chinese laundry but it’s a relief when the bank statement comes!
The pictures in the post are of the weekend just gone which was glorious. We’re at a funny stage in the garden where all the primroses and tulips are out and so are the geraniums from last year which all survived a Winter in the greenhouse. I slaved like nobody’s business yesterday and came in bleeding and bruised after my efforts. But it is really starting to look good out there and the veg is coming along nicely in the greenhouse. Madam Rainbow spent the afternoon with me sunbathing and generally getting in the way and it was lovely.
I also finished off these little fellows which I had a mind to sell but wasn’t sure if they were ‘Eastery’ enough
So there you go. As you can see, I haven’t been idle and there’s plenty more where all that came from. Little acorns Dear reader. Little acorns.
