So I haven’t been on here for QUITE some time… Almost two years in fact. During the past couple of years James and I have experienced a bit of upheaval, change and a rather large setback which thankfully we have managed to move past.
So to explain … We have moved from Malvern back to Bromsgrove, which is where we are both from originally. The main reason for this is that we both have new jobs!! James now commutes to London where he has a very swanky and important Software Developer job for one of the big consultancies there, and I am now working as a Manager at a rather large and well known chocolate manufacturers based in the midlands.
So unfortunately we left our rural idyll and have moved into a lovely Victorian semi with a lovely long but shadowy garden. We are settled here now and James is home each weekend.
The setback I speak of was a rather nasty horse riding accident that culminated in me fracturing my L1 vertebrae ( the very middle of the back) and needing three months of basic bed rest. So basically no garden action occurred during or in fact after my recovery period, sadly. I did manage to pot up and grow some beautiful orchids from bulbs though …
We also have a new addition to the family. I would like to introduce…. Claude the kitten, affectionately known as ‘Claudey’, ‘Monsieur le Claude’ or claudeyface. He will feature fairly heavily in the blog I should think, particularly as he is quite a character!
