Time flies too fast!

It's been another month since my last post and I just don't know where the time is going.
I'll admit that I've been quite directionless of late, not being able to settle to anything and flitting constantly from one project to another. I think, if I'm really honest, I've been suffering from depression. It varies from mild to almost a deep black pit.

Since my son came back a few weeks ago, things have improved and I've been tackling some long neglected jobs, like my poor garden. The trouble is, I've overdone it again and now I feel worn out! This earnt me a thorough lecture from both son and partner so I sulked a bit but they are right!

My son helped me to build this arch for the beans, which are finally romping away since this photo. Nettle fertiliser and rain have heped.

 This was the state of the front garden which has been thoroughly neglected in favour of the potager! It took me the whole weekend in searing heat to clear it.
 I also built a low dry stone wall to stop the grass from encroaching again and it was good to find the original path below all the weeds! The rest of the garden is still overgrown, but the ponies will eat that down in no time!
So, today I'm feeling a little better, my lovely son has been so sweet and I'm being a little gentle with myuself. I have a craft group to go to this afternoon which will do me good. They're lovely ladies who just natter and paint or sew. It's good to be part of a group again.

Where I go next with my business plans though is anyones guess!
