Catch-up time

Oops, there goes another month with barely a post.  But now it’s September, a new year beckons, and I’m ready to go with renewed energy and time.

I have some catching up to do, and some things maybe that just will never be caught up.

I’ve had a wonderful summer – I seem to remember mostly the sunshiny bits, whereas Malcolm mostly remembers the rainy days (perhaps because they were what stood between him and his plans to go camping more this summer).

I spent the time working my allotment, improving the garden back and front, cooking, crocheting, seeing friends, walking (a lot!), and continuing my love affair with Bath City Farm (including catching up with a backlog of things I’d said I would do).  There were visits from friends and relatives.  There were several trips to London to visit a friend.  It’s been lovely in all sorts of ways.

And now I’m ready for that September feeling of a fresh start.  Jewish New Year (21 September this year) has always felt to me like exactly the right time to celebrate and begin a new year.

and another, now finished and ready to sell….

The Kinks had it right….

(one of the things that’s got in the way of me posting on here is that I seem to have run out of space for images.  I’ve got round it as a temporary fix by removing some I feel are superfluous, but in the longer term I’ll need to find a better fix.  In the meantime, I’ll have to manage by using fewer photos.  I hope you can bear with me….)

Now I've passed 60 I'm still doing all sorts of things I haven't done before, as well as carrying on with the things I already love. I live a happy life with my long term love Malcolm. In my blog I explore local and low tech ideas, food, growing, making, reading, thinking, walking, and lots of other words ending in 'ing'.

    It’s lovely to see you back, Deborah, and I’m glad to hear you had such a good summer! I’m with you on September feeling like the new year … I’m looking forward to hearing about what that looks like for you 🙂 .
    (And the blankets are beautiful; it must be a wonderful feeling knowing your creative work supports something you believe in so strongly.)

    Good to hear from you and it sounds like you’ve had a lovely summer. Happy new year 🙂 x


I love to read your comments. I don't expect everyone to agree with me, and I don't mind if you don't. However, I ask you to respect the 'circle time' rules made by my son's primary school teacher: make a comment, ask a question or say something nice. Thank you!
