Sorry for the slightly autumnal looking image. It was actually taken last Sunday on an extremely hot and sultry day. We were on a family picnic to celebrate my Sisters Birthday, and visited a beautiful garden called Pyt House in Berkshire, open under the National Gardens Scheme. I couldn't resist snapping this amazing seed head of angelica. Don't you think sometimes seed heads can be almost as beautiful as flowers. So sculptural.
The garden was absolutely beautiful as was that of the cottage next door which was also open. Unfortunately I only had chance to take these three photos as I was kept busy with Hamish and Jossy our nephew and neice. Hamish and I spent quite some time watching the chickens pictured below and a rather beautiful cockerel. I was informed by Hamish that "He's a rooster actually Aunty Nonnie"! That's me told. Not sure if he's correct but knowing Hamish he might be. Very well informed for a three year old!
My second apology of the day is for my lack of posting. I can't believe it's been a month. I have no excuse really. It's not that I've been madly busy. I just haven't had anything exciting, pretty or positive to write about. I only ever want to put nice things on my blog. But the honest truth is I haven't had anything that special to share. I've been a grump and I've been sad a lot these last few months and I didn't want to share that here. Not what you expect to be writing when you're newly married but life isn't always nice to you just because you're newly married. We've had to deal with something totally heart breaking in the first months of our marriage and add to that the fact that I've now been unemployed for just over 8 months and feel totally depressed about it and you'll hopefully understand my absense.
But today I have a glimmer of positivity in that I have a job interview later today. My first in the whole time I've been jobless! I'm very very nervous but I'm hopeful too. My agent has told me I'm the most experienced candidate so I've just got to go in there and make them like me. I really need to get this job, both for my own sanity and for our financial stability. Don't get me wrong, I've kind of loved being at home all day and making things to sell, and I know that if I get the job I will be dreaming of being back at home all day rather than being in an office. But the fact is that I've had too much time on my own of late. Too much time to dwell on sadness. And not enough time making my own money. So wish me luck fellow bloggers and send me a few good vibes at 2.30 this afternoon!
I feel a little nervous having got that lot of my chest. This blog was not going to be about personal stuff but I just felt the need for a bit of sharing again. And just so you all know, despite the horridness, married life is still wonderful. Being married to my wonderful man is a very very positive thing in my life and I love him more every day.
I'm going to finish with a couple of pretty pictures. I snapped these pictures of the sky the other evening. I'm not sure they do it justice. It really was absolutely stunning. Thanks for reading. I will be back with prettiness again next time. x
