Today I am another blogger conference, yes I know non-blogger readers might not be interested, but I’m still writing it. These two, Mel and Lucy are fun to be with. I talk to them often, and not just blogging stuff. Real life and family, gossip and current affairs. Making friends online is so less scary than making friends down the pub ever was. You see us bloggers, we overshare our personal lives and our feelings. You know before you ever meet them in person if you’ll get on.
Right now I am sat in a session at Blog Camp. Sally opened with the title “Pro blogging is crap” which made me laugh. Saying that really those 50 quid blog posts are under minimum wage when you factor in the blogging and photography and editing and administration and and and …. She’s right. It’s very low pay really, but I like it. I like meeting new people, well I do and I don’t! Most people are lovely but some are just so different from me I struggle to talk to them, to relate.

With the current rain it’s boggy out there! The front garden is smaller, and with no fencing but has better drainage and supports a lawn, woohoo. It’s good enough to keep trees alive and happy.
Tots100 have set another blogger challenge so I thought I’d join in.Any old excuse to get out in the garden.The tots100 challenge is to blog anything to do with growing. It’s for a chance to win a center parks family break, so how could I resist. This follows on from my recent post It’s Raining It’s Pouring where the weather hindered my gardening plans.Cheap bulbs, from Wilko. Seed multipack from a pound shop. Mixed up bulbs, like lucky dip. I do not do perfect straight line planting in my garden. First I dug over the messy messy flower bed. We have clay based soil, which is heavy and clumps together awfully. To combat this I often dig holes and fill them with home made compost, which is why you might see bits of sawdust and hay mixed in the soil. It’s slowly helping fix the issue. Pre dig photo. My […]
