Happy Mother's Day

Wishing all the wonderful mothers out there a very Happy Mother's Day - Mine and Scott's in particular...

Hi Everyone

I hope you have all been keeping well.

Where have the past few months gone?! Like all of us, I've been busy over Christmas and New Year with work and projects at home.

I am gradually getting on top of all the Spring chores (flicking through seed catalogues; pressure washing patio; sorting the greenhouse, to name a few) and beginning to have more time to focus on MINIS !!

I have small plans for the upcoming year! Ordinarily this would not be something to be shouting about, however, on this occasion it is BIG news! I've spent some time thinking about what stresses me out with my mini obsession and realised that its all about commitment - in particular, being scared of it!! By that, I mean I am often daunted and ultimately put off by the scale of a project which leads to despondency and eventually disinterest. Also, perhaps, because results are less instantaneous. All silly I know, but what with juggling an ever increasing workload and a garden that is as demanding as the most spoilt of children, sometimes the [self imposed] pressure of "creating" falls further down the list of pleasures.

So, with this in mind, I am downsizing my current project. I have salvaged key pieces from my current house (see previous post) and allocated them to a new smaller project which, I am sure, will be much more enjoyable and should allow myself to simply enjoy the process rather than resent it.

Anyway, I'll sign off there before I ramble on much further. Have a wonderful day, what ever you get up to and whom ever it is with.

Best wishes
