The planet is our home; we need to be more responsible. Here's what I do.
I’ve been doing the blog thing. Some of you have become keen regular readers already. This gives me joy and makes me feel impressed and unworthy at the same time. It’s coming to the end of my first real month blogging so that’s why I’m feeling modest.
Some of you may have found last week a little curious. I was slightly quiet. Basically I’ve been away but I managed to schedule posts to keep up the momentum. I had a tiny bit of online access while I’ve been gone too and tried to prioritise replies to comments as much as possible.
So now I’m a little reflective.
Why misery Monday?
A friend on Facebook just wrote something with that expression. I spent a good bit of my off line time drafting posts and trying to create a strategy for each day’s posting theme. Monday was missing.
So now I have it.
Am I miserable?
Why might I be miserable?
Well The truth is it’s gone from holiday and back to work. However try as I might I’m not miserable. The trip was great.
Today I woke up in daylight which is a nice change and it was still light at 6.15 when I got home. Plus the sky was/is like this.
Bright and clear.
I suspect Monday could have been miserable. But today it was alright. It’s good to be back.
The chickens have started to lay as well.
And there’s this:
Our first iris and snowdrops in a bulb strip on the allotment.
The chicken holiday chalet at the allotment for visits and a fresh dug field ready for the peas and beans.
And I’ve got my best Monday stats ever! Thanks to you! Definitely not miserable.
