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'm Ready for the Olympics...



I have sorted my stash of wool.... 





......and looked up some free patterns on Ravelry.  If you are not a member then join now, it's free and so are hundreds of knitting and crochet patterns.


I have bought some more of my favourite paint....  Annie Sloan's chalk based paints... marketed as 'Paint for Girls' - very sexist, and I am sure very incorrect since I know lots of girls who are very good at painting and decorating, but once you use Annie's chalk based paint, you will understand why.  Even the worst painter in the world ' aka me' can get a good result.


...I have some little sewing projects to finish...



 ....and sewing machines that need a little bit of servicing.


And we once again have viewers coming to see our house... hoorah!  I wonder why it was so quiet for the last few weeks?
