In the Garden – November 2021

The garden in November was pretty, but brimming with weeds!  The weather was all over the place having us in short sleaves one day and reaching for the winter woollies the next!

On the 12th it began raining, there were weather warnings for a rain band that was going to produce unusual amounts of rain.  The rains continued through the next day, it just rained and rained and rained with our first reading of 60ml!  Flood warnings kept flashing up on the phone, but we are up high, so were lucky.  We’ve had more rain than ever this year, that is compared to what we’ve had in the past five years (that’s how long we’ve been here).  Probably not strange, really, because of the drought we’ve experienced since arriving.  Clearly the drought is over.

Since launching our small catering business many things have been neglected, including my blog, our garden and us!

In recent times the hours that we have been working were nothing short of crazy!  Things had to change, but how could we do it, and still look after our clients?  After many late night conversations, we realized that by looking after ourselves, we would actually be looking after our clients.  So we worked out what would work best for us, and in turn how we could make it work for those who ordered from us.  We now work three weeks, have our weekends back and take the fourth weekend off – well that’s the plan!

We are both looking forward to visiting, and spending more time with our family and friends; having time to get all the odd jobs done around the house and yard, to making the occasional escape to new places; and, just picking up a book or magazine and reading. Continue reading
