December’s always an odd month at work as putting up the lights for the Christmas event, taking them down again afterwards and other festive preparations (not to mention the staff dinner and holiday time) tend to eat up quite a lot of the month. All that stuff is enjoyable but not really gardening! I guess the most productive thing this month has been putting in all those bulbs.
I… er…. forgot to water the Christmas trees that had been brought in. This is usually my job and one I’m quite vigilant over. But for some reason this year it completely slipped my mind until I was sitting opposite the boss over the Christmas meal and went ‘Oh No!’. He said he’d do it for me the next day which was very forgiving of him. I’m on holiday ’till the 3rd Jan at which point I’ll find out exactly how bad it was. Eeep!
