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.

BillyJon did it!! Telephone call a few minutes ago to say he had just come off the top of Mount Kilimanjaro!!!!!! He was totally exhausted and very emotional, was going to have an hours sleep before setting off for the journey back down - equally arduous if not more so - his splints are not designed to slope his foot downwards. They are all such brave boys and girls!!

We are delighted. It's champagne for breakfast today!!
