I've been absent this month as I've been to busy with work and have had far too much going on in the family for my liking thank you very much.
I wont bore you to much but Robs job in Mauritius has fallen through well put back until next year. The group of ten going over in July had to be cut into two groups of five. One group travelling as planned in July and the second group to follow on next year. Rob was placed in the second group so has technically been left without a job. I'd love to have a look at the two contracts he signed one with the university the other with the Welsh Assembly. The variation of contract would be of huge interest to me also. I'd also like to deliver a few hard slaps to some of the smug people who have enjoyed Robs misfortune - manners and my over whelming feeling of sadness for him have stopped me from doing so.
Mike has been having medical investigations for the last few months. He was finally given the all clear Tuesday.
Harry suffered vision loss towards the side of his eye last month an emergency appointment found nothing but to be on the safe side he has been referred on and has a hospital appointment next month.
Apart from the above I'm fine thank you but have been very neglectful of mine and your blogs.
We have been busy in the garden though
An awful photograph but we now have a little orchard. Mike has planted all but two of the fruit trees and not to be out done I've scattered some wild flower seeds and transplanted some fox gloves and cowslips. I've just noticed Rocky hounds bottom in this shot. How rude!
Mike has turned the greenhouse on its side which has given us a huge amount of space for an eating and cooking area. Mike looks a little like Father Christmas here pre season.

The fig tree is flourishing this year. I think there are twelve figs on the tree
While we have a large bay tree in the garden Mike decided he rather liked the twisty stems on these. I shall start a production line of dried leaves and hope to make my first million next year.

Hope you are all well I hope to start commenting again soon. Take care xx
