Remember me? No? I’m Back!

painting-1

Things move quickly in the world of blog, and I suspect it’s going to take me a while to get back up to speed (although I’m not even sure what I mean by ‘up to speed’, I’ll figure it out later). Many moons have passed since I last posted (actually 3) and I’ve missed hanging out here, so I’ll be trekking WordPress over the next few weeks to find out what you’ve all been up to.

Me, I’ve been up to stuff also. In a fit of frustration at my job, I quit. It was the worst time of year for a gardener to leave a job, but after only a week of frantic wailing at my own recklessness, I got re-employed. I need to point out that the speedy turnaround was nothing to do with the state of our economy, and everything to do with the lack of people who want to be gardeners. Anyway, my new job is great, but exhausting, and in a different field to the one I’ve specialised in for the last three years, so it’s been a struggle.

Hibiscus – taken on my last day in my old job

I’ve had to learn how to drive a van very quickly because nobody at my new job knew I’d not really driven one before, plus remember how to start a hedgecutter.

More importantly, I’ve been visited by a fox

 

and a cat,

sadly the two aren’t friends yet.

Anyway, waffle over, stories and commentary on the world will start again soon. I hope you come back soon, and have a beautiful day.

  1. Great to have you back and to hear your news about a new job. Lovely painting of a leaf. Gorgeous fox. We have city foxes in our neighbourhood (they are all around Melbourne) and have seen one in our front garden. The dogs aren’t impressed either, like your cat.

  2. I’m so excited you are back!! Truly! I love your quirkiness, and the see-behind-the-curtain wisdom that so liberally adorns your posts… šŸ˜€

    If it makes you feel any better, the last few months have been a struggle for many, and it has shown up frequently here in the world o’ blogs. Myself included…

    Warm welcome back hugs coming your way…

    1. Why, thank you! And good to hear from you, I hope you’re doing fine and dandy. I think it’s probably healthier for me to have something creative going on besides work, and a chance to connect to other writers and see what they’re up to is always great šŸ™‚

  3. Lovely to have you back! Well done for getting a new gardening job and hope you settle in fine. Great leaf painting, liking the segmental approach too. Gotta be watercolour. Re time away, just goes to show that if you do a quality blog then people will await your return! Cheers!
