Pumpkin Soup

a weblog with an allotment attached

8 January 2009

The Soup is back in town.

I’ve been gone a very long time, haven’t I? Sorry about that. I tend to hibernate at this time of year and that tendency was compounded by me feeling completely overwhelmed and stressed at work leaving no space in my brain for soupiness. Please forgive me.

I am just about emerging from my wintry state and am venturing back into the world in many different ways, one of which is by starting to write here again. I’ll fill you in over the next few days about what we’ve been up to, including our new year trip to Whitby where we met this lovely little chap.

So, it’s late, but happy new year to all my readers (if any of you are still around!). Thanks for your patience.

    A previous lurker I would just like to say it’s good to see you back. I am no longer working but remember that overwhelmed and stressed feeling all to well – sometimes you have no surplus energy left for other activities. Look forward to your posts in 2009. Happy New Year !

    I know what you mean. I thought I was a nice flower picture back in September when I took it, but I’m a bit sick of it now too. Nice to hear that you keep coming back though. It really won’t be 4 months to the next post – I’m working on something for tomorrow.

    Welcome back.
    You’ve got to love a Robin – such pushy little birds!

    As a longtime lurker and admirer of your photography, I was a bit shocked last night when I clicked on the link and the browser timed out! I rather thought another allotmenteer had bitten the dirt, but glad to see you’re still about.

    Welcome! Delighted to see you back in harness. Now let’s hear some stories and see some pictures from that potager; I’m keen to hear how it’s working out!

    Good to see you back. I also hibernated for a bit!
    Nice little red robin you have there.
    Take care.
