Our Wild Northumbrian Adventure

I’m snuggled upon a bed fit for a princess…the most magical four poster bed, with posts made from the trunks of silver birch, wrapped in twinkling fairy lights….Arthur is sleeping soundly beside me, Dan is laid across the bottom of the bed, engrossed in a book, Ollie is sleeping on the floor, beside the fire….the…

Shamanic Retreat

I had planned to have have this post on much sooner, but truth be told I have struggled to find the words…. I was going to be attending The Shamans Path at Lendrick Lodge. It is described as a weekend of ancient rituals and ecstatic transformation…… I was full of trepidation going into this, as…

Feeling the fear.

I’m writing this (hopefully) short post as I know next week I will be writing all about my weekend and will no doubt have had an amazing time….and the fear I feel now will be forgotten. I wanted to document it, to hopefully help others or at the very least ,help myself, when I hit…

Our Lake District Adventure

I spoke in my last post about my New Year Intentions. One of the most important ones for me was adventure. To be precise, more of them! It really does spark joy within me to find myself in new places, exploring new landscapes….especially with the promise of a little magic thrown in. This month the…

Enchanted Escapes

One of our main priorities as a family for 2019 is connection and adventures. One of my favourite feelings in the whole world, is grabbing a bag, throwing a few essentials into it and heading off into nature. This year I am making sure that happens as much as possible. As a family we will…

2018 Reflections.

This post began with the title New Year Intentions and ended up the title 2018 reflections, although ramblings may be more apt! It has been a funny old year, 2018. It seems like not much has changed looking from the outside, but looks can be deceiving. This year has seen many changes for me on…

Arthur’s Christmas List.

I thought I would write a little blog to show you what we have bought Arthur this year for Christmas. He will be three in two months time and I think these gifts are very age appropriate. 1. A Kitchen. Arthur’s main present is a wooden kitchen. He has been playing with a basket full…

The Winter Solstice

The Winter Solstice, Yule, is the longest night and shortest day of the year. It marks the return of the Sun, from here the days begin to get just a little bit longer. Regardless of your beliefs, I find Yule is the perfect way to celebrate nature and our earth, and gives us chance to…
