I should really come down to the allotment early in the morning more often. This morning was beautiful. We had rain in the night so the recent humid air had cleared leaving a sparkling blue sky and sunlight twinkling on rain soaked leaves. Even today, I’m only passing through, dropping off some bags and containers on my way to the station so that I can harvest supplies for tomorrow’s party to celebrate my dad’s retirement.

There’s been a few gaps in my blog lately. As a freelancer working in the arts, my work sometimes swings from feast to famine and recently I’ve been completely caught up in work so that spending yet more time at a computer hasn’t really appealed. It’s been a time to escape to the garden and enjoy it for myself to clear my head.

One project in particular has been taking up a lot of my time and energy but in a really good way. It has huge potential and I’m proud to be a part of it. As a result, I’ll be taking another break from blogging over the next few weeks as I head up to the Edinburgh Fringe festival in my role as Producer of Solfatara by Catalan theatre company A Tres Bandes from Barcelona. I don’t normally plug my professional work here, but can’t resist this time as it deserves to be seen by as many people as possible. If you’re anywhere near Edinburgh in August, please come and see it. And do say hello if you do.
