Hazel Catkins from jabblog
Things have been rather hectic at work and I’ve been struggling a little with my health, so I’m afraid the blog has been neglected for a couple of weeks. I wish I could say everything’s on the mend, but I have a week’s holiday booked from this Friday so I’m clinging on, and hopefully five days away in the van on Anglesey and maybe a visit to my friend’s small holding in Snowdonia will see me on the mend!
I had a great day out with the Wildwood which I’ll write about later on, but I haven’t really been up to much else apart from crawling in and out of work and swallowing paracetamol. The boss is on holiday and as usual I developed the flu. I only ever take one or two days sick a year if that, but you can practically guarantee that if I do get struck down with something it will be when I’m alone in the Office or there is something only I can deal with. At the moment we have the Auditors in and I’ve spent the last six weeks having my head pecked to produce x y or z. They’re running up to their deadline and so I felt I had to go in since I’m the only one left who can help them. This is the second time I have been audited in my working life and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. Talk about stress.
Anyway on a slightly jollier note, some signs of Spring. We had our first lamb in the field behind the house on the 21st Feb, and this morning there is frogspawn in the pond by the house. Mr Stoatie is making noises about ‘doing the garden’ now the nights are getting lighter. I wish I could feel excited about this but I really do find gardening a struggle!
