Garden Thrills

Garden Thrills Posted on 08/10/20145 Comments
Ahoy, hello! My name is Jenny. I am a thirty-something human female from Manchester in the north of England. I enjoy rainy days and sad songs, custard donuts and salt & pepper chips and beer, lentil dhal and fried okra, X-Files and Twin Peaks, fierce fat heroines and mental health advocates, dogs and cats and otters and a very special beirdo. To paraphrase Sylvia Plath: "I blog because there is a voice within me that insists on writing lots of ridiculous chuff".

So, dear blogging pals, the last couple of weeks has been CRAZY. I moved house. Again. But boy am I living in suburban heaven now. I am literally like a pig in muck, only with a huge garden, a dishwasher and a corner bath. I have trees and plants and a shed and decking and a STUDY ROOM YOU GUYZ. I am so disgustingly happy tucked away at the end corner of a little cul-de-sac 10 minutes walk from at least one place that is actually a “VALE” that I might explode.

My kitchen is an utter delight, and I’ve already been a bakin’ and a cookin’ more than I have for a while. I’ve alsoΒ been super duper busy starting my MA though, so who knows how long that’ll last (especially with a chippy just at the end of the road….)

More exciting currently is my bloody amazing garden. I have miles of garden (sortofnotreally), composters, planters, conifers, a shed, yehhhhhhh!

I have some daff bulbs to plant in tomorrow, and am super DUPER excited about my raised bed plans, as I have plenty of onion and garlic bulbs ready to go.

My house is tremendous, and Vulpe is thrilled at being able to run up the stairs, down the stairs, up the stairs, down the stairs…… The garden is a huge hit; even Miaowski has mustered up some enthusiasm…

Vulpe’s also been enjoying walking on nearby Sunnybank Vale, which is our new favourite walkies spot, and one that looks like it might be able to help me out with a crumble or two, when the time is right….

I’m enjoying my last few days off work before it’s back to normality πŸ™

    1. You are welcome to invite yourself over anytime at all! It’s a shame the winter’s coming in but it’s going to be great for al fresco dining in the Spring/Summer πŸ™‚ x
