Happy New Year!
The first thing that struck me when I awoke from my slumber on the first day of 2012 was chilli seeds then homework. Chilli seeds because February is the month I can start planting them. Homework because it is due in next week.
I managed to restrain myself from raiding the seed tin to find out what I still have in stock and whether it remains viable. I settled down to a big mug of tea and I set out my plant science books on the table. Except, I noticed the carpets were in real need of a vacuum. Then the house plants needed watering. Then I gave the kitchen a bit of a once over and finished off with dead heading the cyclamen. By the time I did all that, it was lunchtime. After some investigation of the fridge, I discovered bacon that needed eating. I revived a day old French stick, added ketchup and enjoyed a delicious bacon butty before doing the washing up. A cup of coffee and a glass of orange juice later, I was ready to continue with some plant science work. However, it has been preying on my mind that I have not blogged for some time, what with generally procrastinating and Christmas stuff. So here I am.
Of course then I thought I could decide my new year resolution(s). Maybe it should be ‘Stop phaffing around and get on with your homework, it won’t do itself you know’. Regretfully, that task will have to wait. I’ve just seen some recycling at the back door to which I need to attend.
