Decorating and gardening seem to have well and truly eaten in to my blogging time recently. I was a little bit naive to think that once the chaos of moving had subsided, I'd be able to write more. In fact, the packing and unpacking was only the beginning. Making our house a home has turned in to a permanent distraction at the cost of all other (somewhat limited, admittedly ... I have a five and a seven year old, after all) hobbies.
