Camping season has begun!

Camping season has begun!

We just had our very first camping trip of the year last week on March 22 when the campsite which had pretty much become our second home last summer opened up for the season. I haven’t had the chance to write about it until now because as soon as we got back I was inspired to create a new wall hanging, a weave using a fallen branch that I had found as my loom and now that it’s finished I can finally reminisce about our short but perfect little break away from it all.. …

My Mother's Day Walk

My Mother's Day Walk

A couple of days late but I really wanted to share some photos from this past Sunday. I had a really beautiful mother's day. All I wanted to do was go for a walk somewhere new and that is exactly what we did. …

Streams, Puddles & More Puddles

Streams, Puddles & More Puddles

The woods were so so wet, and the streams were flowing. This is Nixie's favourite environment and it took her all of 5 seconds before she was off exploring the path of the stream by wading through it and at times sliding down the sides or jumping into it or just sitting in the middle of it. …

Our first just-the-two-of-us adventure of the year

Our first just-the-two-of-us adventure of the year

This week marked the return of Kevin having to go back to work after 12 amazing days together. I was a little worried that it was going to be a bit of a hard transition for Nixie because she had been loving having him with us everyday and has become so attached to him. She wouldn't even let him out of her sight for a second! But she really surprised me with her maturity, the first morning she woke up and noticed that Kevin was gone, she just said, “daddy's at work, I miss him, I love him,” and just gave me the biggest cuddle and that was it! The last three days have been so wonderful, there's been no upsets, bad moods or anything... …

Holland's Wood Wandering

Holland's Wood Wandering

What an incredible day me and Nixie have had. I woke up feeling pretty rough, I had barely gotten any sleep, Nixie kept me up most of the night, wanting to nurse all of the time. She hasn’t been very well these past few days dealing with a cold that’s been wearing her out. Right after I woke up this morning I felt the strongest pull to go to the woods, i thought being outside would be good for both of us. Whenever i feel a bit low, I know that the best place for me is the woods. It always restores me in some way and gives me exactly what i need. …

Our New Life in the New Forest

Our New Life in the New Forest

These past couple of months have brought with them so many life changes. We relocated from the busy city of London where our everyday environment consisted of lots of cars, busses, fumes, buildings, pavements, ambulance sirens, noise and people rushing around in too much of a hurry to even say hello, to country life in the New Forest where our everyday consists of horses, cows, donkeys, forests, heathlands, fields, seaside, woodland streams and birdsong …
