    Let’s Take a Moment to Ponder 13th September 2022 Gratitude. A little word with a big punch. It saddens me that there is so little gratitude nowadays. Things are expected and taken advantage of, rather than accepted with gratitude and grace. Have we become so unbelievably self-absorbed, that the little things in life no longer […]
  • Tales of the Homestead- Mooey
    The Tale of Mooey the Maggie Where do I start with this tale? You see, this one is a hard tale to tell, and one I’d been putting off, as Mooey is no longer with us and it has left a gaping hole here at the homestead. OK, here we go, hope you have your […]
  • From the Apothecary 9/9/22
    Herbal Tea for Anxiety and Stress. I think in this day and age, stress, depression and anxiety have sky rocketed and we don’t tend to take the time to look after our own mental well-being. Although I don’t hold the magic cure (unfortunately), I do have a special tea blend that I make on a […]

  • Let’s Take a Moment to Ponder…..23/8/22
    Why do we feel the need to wait for a sign? Wait for the perfect time? Wait for a “Good Reason”? An excuse? Why do we have to wait to make changes in our lives? I truly belive that NOW is the perfect time. You just have to start with one tiny step. One tiny, […]
