Im back...
« on: August 09, 2010, 10:17:20 am »
I never really went away i just stopped posting! ive still been visiting and reading most days tho :)

My life has changed and i suppose gone round full circle since i last posted... im now single and dont have any animals at all... not even goldfish!

Following the death of my dad in May ive moved back in with my mum for a bit so have access to a small veggie garden and have started some carrots and parsnips in pots, im guessing im way too late for them to grow but thought id give it a go!

 :wave: :wave: :wave:

Morning, I keep posting but sometimes have more to say than others and with your change in circumstances can quite understand, our brains can only take so much, well mine can. Anyway, get your winter veg in and you will enjoy a good Christmas dinner with your home grown stuff. I did have an allotment some years ago and it was behind my back garden so ideal but boy was it FULL of weeds so we gave up, no time, no energy and no interest...that was then, working on the land, however small,even crowning in pots, is so rewarding and appeals to our base instincts....keep digging

Hi Stephen and nice to see you back on here. From time to time life can be cruel and tough but eventually, as you say, they go full circle and the sun starts to shine again. I'm sure we have all been there, hope you are enjoying your new life. :)

Hi, Stephen. Remind me - did you have oriental cats or am I thinking about someone else? Old age doesn't come alone  ::)

Good to have you back, Stephen. Even if your life has changed and you are on your own again you still have loads of friends to chat to on here - and perhaps you'll be able to have those 6 acres you dreamed of one day.

Sandy - Thanks im hoping they grow but if not i can raid mums veggies!

James - its a cliche but i dont think ive ever been happier... i feel like i know what im doing and where im going and how im going to get there... if that makes sense!

Rosemary - my ex partner bread cats... Oriental, siamese, bengal, persian, BSH.... I have no idea what has become of his cattery or the cats as we no longer speak. I miss them like mad tho and wish i could see them from time to time. Mum has half adopted next doors cat tho.. she has started letting him in the house.. well he has invited himself in but she dosent shooo him back out!

Doganjo - hello, im only 26 so ive got plenty of time to work towards the 6 or so acres! it is still a dream for me but one i will work towards and hopefully one day...

JulieS - Thanks  :)

Thanks all for the warm welcome back  ;D

Maybe thinking ahead of the game ;D  Perhaps you'll take over where Jamie leaves off?  Become a Country Chef maybe?
