nearly two months

I can't believe that it's been almost two months since I last posted on this blog page, the time has flown. It's not been a good two months either as already I've had the oncoming signs of the depression that always gets to me at this time of year, but trying to keep myself busy and get on with the various projects that I have on the go can only help. I sometimes feel so overwhelmed with everything going on in my life that I find it hard to cope, but cope I will.

I managed to finish the cardigan for Rachel's baby so I must get a photo done to remind me of what I can achieve. I also bought some more wool, a lovely shade of pink to make another little jacket that is covered in a heart pattern, I can't wait to get started on it. I've also finished the cross stitch exchange and already have ideas for my next one. I do so enjoy my cross stitch at this time of year, it's a good excuse to snuggle down in front of the fire and not feel guilty about not doing work outside.

We did manage to have a good go at the garden last weekend when the weather was so nice; the vegetable plot is now almost dug over ready for next year and the flower garden only needs a bit of sprucing up and that should carry it through until the real work starts again in Spring. I'm still contemplating whether to go ahead and have some chickens for next year, we have the space and I have the time so there's nothing stopping me, but I'm still not certain. I like the thought of having fresh eggs and knowing where they've come from.

That's it for today, not a lot to tell.
