Is anyone else out there totally fed up of all the sporting references EVERYWHERE you look? Every single advert on the telly seems to be connected to sport - even a famous brand of washing up liquid is counting how many washed plates make an Olympic athlete... I ask you..What Next??
I am not very interested in sport, I admit it, but I am growing less interested in the Olympics the nearer it gets. We live about an hour and a half's drive from London, which is great, because it means we can take day trips to see the sights, take in a show or a concert and all that kind of stuff. So, will we be going to any of the Olympic events?
I think not.
Firstly, getting tickets was such a farce and so expensive and I know people who have ended up paying a fortune for tickets to events that they actually did not really want to see. Marry that up with the expense and time and hassle getting to London on the day... no thank you. I think the best seat will be in my living room in front of the telly. Or better still in the garden with the telly off and a g&t in my hands - weather permitting of course. Don't get me started on the weather!
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.
