Thoughts on Home and Family ๐Ÿ’ž

Iโ€™ve written many blog posts on the subject of home and family over the years, since I first started writing so long ago about life in our little corner of the world. Back then, home was a tiny one-bedroomed cottage, just the two of us and our beloved pets making up our family unit inContinue reading “Thoughts on Home and Family ๐Ÿ’ž”

Last night of the holidays

Itโ€™s the last night of the Easter holidays, and itโ€™s been a really lovely couple of weeks here in our little corner of the world. Weather wise it couldnโ€™t have been more mixed, with whipping winds, days of glorious sunshine broken up by a string of unexpected April snow showers – a December-worthy blizzard swirlingContinue reading “Last night of the holidays”

Lockdown times at the farm

Just a little good morning from our corner of the world… hope you are all well despite the times weโ€™re living in, and are finding ways to navigate through these next few weeks. Here, weโ€™ve been back to a life at home, trying to keep the little ones busy and happy, stay as connected toContinue reading “Lockdown times at the farm”

Autumn Term & New Beginnings ๐Ÿ‚

The summer holidays have drawn to a close here, and – this year for the first time in five months instead of in six or seven weeks – the schools have started back. This time last year that meant me and my biggest girl we were slipping seamlessly back into all our usual toddler groupsContinue reading “Autumn Term & New Beginnings ๐Ÿ‚”

Holidaying at Home

The last little while has been our summer holiday, with my husband off work for two lovely weeks. We originally had a caravan holiday booked (pre-lockdown!!) for what would have been our first trip away together as a family of four. We had planned to go to Haggerston Castle near Berwick on Tweed for aContinue reading “Holidaying at Home”

Thankful Thursday #2 ๐Ÿ’›

There is so much to be thankful for here at the moment, and I started the day in my very favourite of places to reflect on it all this morning, out for an early-morning hack with my boy – something Iโ€™m so grateful for in itself. ๐Ÿ’› The last week has seen some changes inContinue reading “Thankful Thursday #2 ๐Ÿ’›”

Thankful Thursday ๐Ÿ’›

This week there has been so much to be thankful for here in our little corner of the world. With lockdown measures easing for the first time on Friday, we found ourselves able to meet at least a little with others once more; and over a long weekend we managed to catch up with ourContinue reading “Thankful Thursday ๐Ÿ’›”

The Sunshine in Lockdown

As we come to the end of the first phase of lockdown, I look forward to being able to be with family and friends again, albeit at a distance, more than I can say. Weโ€™re reaching a time it sometimes seemed would never come and it will be beyond lovely to sit outside with theContinue reading “The Sunshine in Lockdown”

May Days ๐ŸŒธ

Life is moving at a very swift pace as weโ€™ve somehow made our way through April and arrived into May. Our youngest daughter has just turned 5 weeks old, and so for us these weeks have been centred around settling into life as a family of four. The first couple were undoubtedly a blur, sleepContinue reading “May Days ๐ŸŒธ”
