Hi everyone, anyone remember me?

I sort of drifted away from this site after having my 3rd baby (3 years ago now already - eek!) and never found the time to do any real life or virtual downsizing. I also went back to Uni and trained as a secondary school teacher which didn't leave me with a lot of time...

Now the kids are getting bigger and more capable and I am finished my training and in the throes of starting my own tutoring business and have just this summer turned my attention to the wasteland that my place has become meantime.

The next year will be devoted to clearing, grubbing, fencing, landscaping, chickens, geese, ducks and a puppy. Really looking forward to getting back into it - I've really missed it.

Hello and welcome back.

I don't remember you but then I joined in 2009 and you may have stopped posting by then.

Aw - really lovely to read your replies and to see some familiar names too! I'm glad to be back.

I've so missed pottering around my place but I just don't get any time. I really need to go back to work to help make ends meet (hence the teacher training!). Life with 3 kids is expensive.

Looking fwrd to getting back in the saddle again. Just getting ready to start phase 1 of sorting out our garden the way we want it and getting some fencing...

Sally Too - my hubby took over the bees for me when I was pregnant. He was brilliant. Worked really hard at it and did a wonderful job. Then the wasps moved in. That was 2010 when the wasps were just awful. They demolished the first colony. Ate all the brood, honey and even the adult bees. The other hive absconded. My husband was devastated. We still don't have any more bees but I think of them often.
