First off I want to start with the apology. I have not been posting as I hoped I would. I don’t have anything simple to explain it with other than… “Life”. To expand on that a little. Life is simply getting in the way of my posting. I have plenty of things to talk about……… Continue reading Hiatus, Explanations and Apologies
https://youtu.be/_e51MCBNzM8 This was a dead quick vid of something I found out today. One, well, the only school we deal with now is showing just how good it really is. This for me is how all schools should work. They should being nature to it. Teach the kids where their food comes from and…… Continue reading How Some Schools Are Getting It Right
Today was a wonderful day. Sunny, fairly warm and in it I found a couple of nice things. First up was cherry blossom on the ground in one of our parks. Rreally nice if you like to sit and enjoy the view. It was a shame that I had to blow it off the path but…… Continue reading What I Did At Work Today
Two posts in one day? I’m not sure the internet could stand the strain! This morning I topped up the soil in my potatoes as I said I would yesterday. Nothing too bad here.

So in effect I have gone from only basic exercise while unemployed to walking about 15 miles a day! So, yes… I have been absolutely knackered by…… Continue reading A Very Busy Week
Normally I don’t post my failed photos… This one I decided to post because… 1. The photo didn’t turn out too bad actually. Although the subject of the shot is out of focus the light on the bells in the background isn’t too bad. And 2. This is the first actual sighting of a Common…… Continue reading A Buzz About Nothing
As was mentioned in a blog post by Growing out of chaos, the adage of ‘April showers’ has been severely lacking so far this spring and we have not actually had much, if anything in the way of rain for a few weeks. Well today it is finally raining. Nothing torrential, no no, that would be…… Continue reading It’s Raining
Today, despite the weather being less than wondrous, I was feeling brave and decided to have a go at my second, and hopefully last, big project of the year. Last week I bought a bit of guttering so I could make a couple of planters for my strawberries. Today I got the whatsits in hand to…… Continue reading Planters Planted.
A tiny fly and an even smaller bug on an Honesty flower. I have only seen flies, hoverflies and small bugs on the Honesty. No bees or other insects. Strange.
