Just half a glass of wine, please...
...to celebrate 100 posts. Okay, they are between this blog and Geranium Cat's Bookshelf, but it still feels like a small achievement. And I'll still wondering whether to consolidate into one blog, but worried that if I do, it will place somehow constraints on what I say. Can I be bookish (well, as much as I am anyway) and still maunder on about dogs and chickens? And the weather, which may feature rather too frequently anyway. Oh and food, of course. This is the place where I muse on the things that make life comfortable, and as the weather (there it is again) improves I shall be thinking about what herbs and vegetables to plant this year and living in fear of the Ivor the Tractor getting stuck in the paddock.
I shall decide after Easter when I have a little more time - life gets pretty busy at this time of year with a 3-day conference to organise in April, as well as all the more mundane bits of my job. Not sure how much I will manage to post during this time - I can get pretty snowed under - and I may have to choose between posting and reading other people's blogs. Alternate weeks, perhaps. After all, people seemed to manage to post while filling Christmas orders (I'm thinking of people like Jane at Books, Mud and Compost here) - surely I can do it while juggling room bookings and audiovisual aids. What's a son for, if not for transforming conference abstracts into an attractive booklet?
All this reminds me that I haven't done anything about the seed order yet - I shall be sitting up in bed with a gardening catalogue tonight, weighing the advantages of gold tomatoes over red ones.
