So we have made it to December!! We don’t normally put up the Xmas decorations until a week before Christmas but 2020 has been a bit different with Covid, and so we bit the bullet to brighten up the place. Recently there has been much debate regarding trees, CO2 and our planet and rightly soContinue reading “December 5th – Christmas & cards”
We ventured out for a woofer walk this afternoon, and were lucky to avoid the heavy storms that have been hitting the UK over this weekend. The ground was a tad soggy, but the dogs didn’t seem to mind, and it was good to be out in the fresh air. It has been mentioned manyContinue reading “November 15th – Winter walk”
We came across a rhododendron in flower in November whilst walking the woofers! It was in Cornwall but they are usually in bloom in March. There are over 1,000 species of this plant and it enjoys cool climates with well-drained, slightly acidic soil. They are widely cultivated for their beautiful fragrant flowers and ornamental leaves. These leaves are arranged in aContinue reading “November 2nd – Rhododendron”
The weather in the UK has been dire over the last few days, but thankfully I always have 2 ‘to-do’ lists on the go, one for inside and one for outside, which keeps me busy and distracted from the gloom wet days. One of the current indoor projects is the creation of a photo bookContinue reading “October 4th – Wet days”

Last week we were melting with temperatures in the mid to high 20’s. This evening we lit the fire…. What is the weather doing?? We did get some rain for the garden finally, and lots of indoor chores done which have been neglected whilst the weather was so brilliant, so not all bad.
Not the best photo in the world but seeing a plane in the sky this afternoon seemed like a rare sight these lock-down days. As someone that cares about the planet, seeing less aeroplanes is a good thing. But on the other hand I love travel, and also having step son who is a pilotContinue reading “April 26th – Lockdown thoughts”
Another fabulous day in Portugal, really warm and still only early March, our 4 legged, furry children are glad we’re not here in summer, camped by a fabulous reservoir. Travelling in a motor-home, especially off grid, does make you consider water usage a lot more than we do at home. We can carry 100 litresContinue reading “March 7th – Water”
Why is there no bark on these trees?
A rather depressing landscape compared to other days
