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.

I LOVE Bread Making Day!

 Freshly baked English Muffins with lemon cheese, baby leaf salad and a cup of tea for the baker

...and last, but not least, the sourdough that took 2.5 days to make.... tara..... 


  1. Oh how maddening must your house have smelt on that day!


  2. You are sooo right Mr DTB... but boy am I getting to be a bread snob... just about to go to Scotland to visit aged parent and offerred to bring bread with me, an offer which was refused with a 'oh I can get bread don't worry about that'. It will be awful white doughy stuff from asda no doubt and I shall have to be polite and eat it. YUK!
