This was my first proper week back at work. Last week was a gentle introduction. It didn’t really count. The weather and my burgeoning cough necessitated a slow and steady pace. We needed to re-aquaint ourselves. This week was fully-fledged, back to normal, let’s get going, shake a leg, gardening. Wonderful.
It might seem contrary, as someone who so magnanimously took a whole month off, to say that I have missed my work. But I have missed the gardens and the forethought, but mostly the people. It is not a secret that plants are my passion, but even more important to me are my relationships with those that I work for. They are stars, one and all. And, if I was to be very honest, paragons.
