Hard to believe we are rushing towards another Bank Holiday weekend. Although I no longer 'go out to work' (I work from home) I still look forward to weekends, and Bank Holiday ones are just as welcome as they were when I was a wage-slave. Hope the weather is good as we are holding a birthday BBQ for a friend of ours - nipping in and out between rain showers to do the cooking is never that much fun (but I do seem to be able to delegate this job to Richard). But then isn't that what Bank Holidays are for? Dodging the rain, hoping for sun and getting a mix of both?
Because of the changes around me and changes in my life, I had to make decisions to give some things up. Sadly, I decided I had to give up fostering kittens for Cats Protection. It was a very hard and difficult decision and I really do miss having them here, but it became harder and harder to fit in the viewings, vet trips, the support they needed, and it also often felt unfair to my own furry gang. I still support the Woking Branch in ways that I can, but I do miss those kittens. I also had to give up managing the accounts of a friend's church - again a hard decision, but necessary.
Now I think I am bang up-to-date with life in Christmas Pie-land. I am off to Chelsea tomorrow - really looking forward to it. I go every year with a good friend who like me loves to garden and it is the highlight of our gardening year. I get to meet my favourite Heuchera people again, Plantagogo, and this year I also want to check out Euphorbias - lovely structural plants.
Have a good week everyone, and enjoy the Bank Holiday no matter what the weather does.
