Still Going In the November Sun.
I will be back but at the moment I just seem to be chasing my tail. Having recovered from the flu and got my voice back I was looking forward to getting some garden time when the weather was reasonable but it wasn't to be. Two weeks ago last night Caroline cut her hand when trying to prevent a glass from falling off the draining board and ended up with stitches in her left hand near her forefinger but with luck it was only going to be a couple of weeks and then back to normal. She had no feeling on one side of her finger so had to go to St James to have it checked out Tuesday last week arrived home Friday lunchtime hand in a splint having severed a nerve and partially severed two tendons requiring three months off work so as someone said the other day I'm having to double job not only teaching but having to look after the horses and tack up for lessons so time and energy is scarce by the time I get back in well after 9pm each night- but these are the trials and tribulations of life. Everyday I look at the garden and think how untidy it is, will have to make time to lift all the pots into the tunnel as I'd hate to lose plants that would succumb to harder frosts also need to finish planting bulbs, off to do some work and then never know I might get a bit of time on what is a reasonable day at the moment. Have been checking in now and again to see what's going on but just cann't get into posting up comments hopefully I will be back soon.

In The November Sun
Hard to believe it's nearly 4 weeks since I've posted up a journal but with one thing and another I've been under the weather, not just the effects of the torrential rain but suffering from flu and laryngitis which is still lingering on. I wasn't fit to get anything done in the garden or feeling up to doing anything much, went for a walk around yesterday to discover I really need to get up and running to tidy up everything up for the winter, especially now that we've had a couple nights really severe frost lots of mushy looking vegetation to be removed. The last week has been busy due to courses and competitions so I missed the opportunity of being out working in the garden on fabulous autumn days which was a pity. Had hoped today would be favourable for gardening but it's sort of mizzling rain so I decided that it wasn't wise to venture out given that I've got to be fit to work, fairly difficult giving riding lessons by sign language. Hope to catch up on what everyone's been at over the next lot of days, thanks to those who sent pm's to me wondering where I'd disappeared to : Cloncaw is alive and kicking.
