I have had a whole week to to recharge my batteries and chill out. One whole week of catching up on life, and for me – enjoying a little time allotmenting. I’ve battled through the ‘holiday cold’, determined to make the most of the time!
Holiday bugs seem to be a hazard of doing a stressful job. I am often (and so are many of my colleagues) tripped up by a ‘bug’ or migraine, as soon as I stop and try to relax! It’s as if my body is shouting “Woohoo, it’s time to repair and recover”. Something switches off the need to override the aches and pains, stops the adrenaline flowing and starts the germs multiplying!! Of course, I would NEVER give in and admit defeat. Being time poor is one of the negatives of being working woman/man.
However, today I woke to find my ‘life battery’ was totally flat! No energy for my lovely allotment. No excuse – just tired. To be honest, I think I should have taken, at least one day, ‘to be busy doing nothing!’ So I decided to potter and pootle around the house and garden.
I did manage a couple of allotment ‘potters and pootles’ – I couldn’t resist…
P&P 1 – Finished my allotment bed markers.
P&P 2 – Managed to source and order some Mexican Tree Spinach seeds.
