Where did the year go?

Nearly Christmas and 2010 has gone in a flash - how did that happen then??

Things dropped off at the plot a bit after my onion harvest in August, due to a combination of work, going to France to see my parents, ferrying assorted kids to assorted social/sporting/dancing events oh and moving house. Now settled into a nice bungalow - I never ever thought I'd have a bungalow - they are for old people!!! With Beccy & her girls, 3 dogds, 2 cats, 5 chickens and my two boys on regular basis - it can all get a bit hectic. Anyhow things are settling down, which means I've no excuses for not knucklig down and making a real good go of the plot next year.
I've not been completely idle - I'm part way through redoing the garden here - which was mainly paving slabs, have lifted what seems like gazzilions and free cycled them, reshaped the front lawn so it's not just square and started planting up the borders - but the snow and ice has stopped play for the minute - and also made it imposible for me to get my parsnips out of the ground for Xmas dinner - we've had to buy some which is a bit of a bugger.
Happy Christmas everyone
