What are we all about?

The focus of this blog is simple - and that's the goal too. A more simple way of life. A life in tune with the rhythms of nature and of human nature. Where everything has its time and place and purpose, including us.

We have left the rat race behind and taken on new challenges. We aim to tread as lightly as we can upon the planet, to reconnect with nature, to eat good food, drink excellent wine, enjoy the best of company.... even if that is sometimes just our own! Please feel free to eavesdrop from time to time on our lives and see how we are doing and if you are ever in Extremadura... drop us an email and we'll give you directions.

Fergus gets a short back and sides!

This is Billy Fergus our Bichon Frise after 2 and a half months of not going to the hairdresser:

If Bichon Frise fur gets matted and isnt brushed out properly before bathing it goes into 'dreads' and is impossible to untangle... the only thing for it is to chop it off...

While Fergus was having his pamper session we went to Faringdon and had breakfast in a little cafe called Sadlers. It's one of those very ancient buildings that dates back at least 300 years and had been a shop and someone's house in the past. All the floors were uneven and some of the doors were squint and the stairs were a little odd too. It had loads of atmosphere and the food was good. I took a couple of photographs but they don't really show how quaint it was.

You can just see where a door has been blocked off by a table but it looks like you can open the top half like a stable door in the summer. Perhaps that is why there are wasp catcher bottles in the window.
