I started my blog for many reasons, one being a reminder to switch off from work and concentrate on the things I enjoy in my life.
Gardening helps me to achieve a healthy work-life balance and it hasn’t been a problem lately. In fact I’ve been outside so much that my blogging balance has taken a serious hit! I also work for a much better company now and I’m not subjected to 24/7 corporate bashing anymore and I find it far easier to leave work behind.
Talking of which, this week I do feel in need of a rest, I want a break! So I’ve taken myself off to the plot with Molly (my newish dog) to do some serious chilling out.
Adam’s been building a new shed (wait till you see this ‘shed’ – it’s more of a summer house/chalet!) so there’s bits and bobs of rubble all over the place waiting to be re-homed.
I’ve done some pottering and I’ve also been chatting to my fellow ‘allotmenteers’ Norman and Bill. Oh to be retired and do this every day!
I’ve also been sitting in the sunshine with my feet up, watching all the bees doing their work in my higgledy-piggledy wildlife border.
I’ve lost count watching the bumblebees buzzing in and out of the foxgloves.
I loved sitting and chilling but as usual the British weather has brought the clouds, so I’ve decided to catch up with my blog.
I’ve plugged my iPhone into my laptop and turned on its wireless hotspot. I’ve successfully uploaded my photos and typed up this blog post on-line from the new shed! Let’s see what happens when I click publish…
I could really get used to this lifestyle! If only the ‘shed’ was my full time home office.
Have you ever thought about working from the garden? Do you find time to chill out and enjoy your outdoor space?
