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.

Toad Hunting

I guess spring has been sprung for a couple of weeks now. Mind you it never quite feels like it until the weather catches up, which it seemed to this week. Our neighbours almond trees have been in blossom for about ten days, we thought this was a little bit early.

Ours are only now catching up, but they are quite young.

We had visitors this week and spent time sight seeing and eating out. This is nice for us, a break from the routine and a break from work. You don't realise how stuck in a routine you have become until you make a change.

It's been great having a like-minded visitor - knitting, crochet, spinning and weaving dominated the conversation. A colourful week!

Some things never lose their appeal though. What is it with me and the frog/toad thing? Last year I recorded their noises on our way to language school. This year I tried my hand at a bit of night filming. Sadly the camera isn't up to low light filming but we did our best. Warning! The following is 7 minutes of your life you will never get back but hey ho! This is how we roll here 😊
