Ok, don’t look at me like that.
I apologise for abandoning you. I can’t remember when that was exactly, but I think it was sometime between lambing and the start of our direct selling venture. It must have been after we finished pruning our 1,000 odd apple trees, but before the hail netting in the orchard went up.
My memory must be going. I know that that the last post I wrote was before sales of lamb at the farm went up by 35% on last year, leaving me with 35% less time to blog. But I can’t remember if that was before or after my part-time job, or the time that time had suddenly run out and the children had’t done their homework and it was time to make dinner (again).
I guess you get the picture. Even if my website is right up there at the top of my list of “important things to do before I go to bed”, I still haven’t found the knack of turning it into a priority and putting it before hungry kids and a French husband.
A big thank you to those who left comments or emailed to check that I hadn’t gone missing in action in the sheep barn. I was very surprised and touched and it is one of the reasons that I’m back where I left off. The other being that blogging is a hard habit to kick and despite my best efforts to cut down, I’ve found that one quick drag has just brought me right back to where I started – a crafty half-hour in front of the screen deeply inhaling blogs.
I look forward to catching up with you all.
