It has been a bit of a tough week so far, and it's only Tuesday! Yesterday I found out that I was too late to apply for a job that I really wanted and then I found out I was also too late to apply for my dream training course and will have to wait 6 months until the next application process. A lesson in organisation right there.
On Sunday I went to help out on an allotment in Richmond. It's a really lovely patch, there were never any flowers planted but nevertheless foxgloves, poppies and nasturtiums seem to have grown up all by themselves, no doubt their seeds were carried over on the wind.
I spent the day picking (and eating) strawberries and ended up taking home close to 1.5kg, due to become jam very shortly. It dawned on me that I have never lived in a property with a garden, perhaps this is the reason why I am so obsessed with them! I would love a little patch of my own one day but for now I am happy with our tiny balcony, indoor growing and the odd visit to other people's allotments.
