Today is an exciting day for a number of reasons…
Firstly, and most importantly, my first ever blog entry is being published. I started setting up the site several weeks ago, but have been putting off writing any entries ever since. But today is the day and entry number 1 will be posted (actually it already has been posted, but I accidentally deleted it… grrrr!).
Secondly, I have cut my grass for the first time this year. This is always a day to celebrate. I love the smell of cut grass and the look of a newly mown lawn.
And finally, I went to a meeting of organised the the local group of the National Garden Scheme (NGS). I went because in September we are opening up the gardens of Wigan and Leigh Hospice for the first time as part of the NGS. I am very excited about this, as well as rather apprehensive. There is much to do between now and then to get the gardens up to scratch, but it’s a great challenge to have. I’m sure that I will write much more about the garden opening in the future.
Well, that’s it for now, blog entry no. 1 completed (again). Short and sweet. I’m off to open a bottle of nice red wine to celebrate. CHEERS!
