The Back Garden Project and a New Friend.

Hands up! How many of us brought a new dog into our lives at the start of the first lockdown? That would be me! Our beloved German Shepherd passed away in the summer of 2019. She lived to be 12. It was quieter in the house even though she really wasn't a noisy dog, neither … Continue reading The Back Garden Project and a New Friend.

It’s been a while… again

Hello! I'm refreshing the website ready for a new year of growing. A spring clean. Last year was a write off. I had a lot of personal problems going on and my allotment was failing. I was unable to maintain it due to an op on my wrist and the personal issues. To top it … Continue reading It’s been a while… again

Happy New Year

I'd just like to take the time to wish everyone a Happy New Year! Thank you for continuing to read my blog and chatting about allotment life in the comments. I hope you all achieve what you set out to do in 2019.

Day 01 // 30 Days Wild

So for day one of our random act of wildness the toddler and hubby built a tiny insect house (I did say he would get involved unknown to him!). I picked up the insect house on a recent day trip and thought it would be a nice activity for us to do together. Then I … Continue reading Day 01 // 30 Days Wild

That's what I get for making sure the boy has sunscreen on and forgetting about myself! I've been super busy, we've been transforming our back garden and already we … Continue reading The Sun is Shining

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child!Excuse the dodgy photo-shop.At the end of this month I get to have a little mini break in London with T. The first time we spend two nights away from C. I'm slightly anxious already about leaving him, I know he will be fine with Grandma, but I'm worried he'll … Continue reading Count down to…

Summer, where are you?

This weekend we actually broke out the bikes. I finally got myself a helmet and gloves, we got trouble a trailer and away we went. We took ourselves off to Torside for a quick little bimble. It was a little late in the day and we weren't too sure how well C would take to … Continue reading Summer, where are you?


So I'm finally getting around to writing this first blog post! Hurrah! This is mainly because I'm procrastinating about all the other things I probably should be doing instead. Like the book keeping, the laundry, food shopping, Save the Dates etc. While the toddler naps I've been supping my cuppa thinking just do it, stop … Continue reading Hello
