    Shadow Work

    “I am Half Sick of Shadows,” said the Lady of Shallot. Alfred, Lord Tennyson ┬áThe deepest shadow is cast by the strongest light is not just a metaphor; it is literal truth. In darkness, contrastingly, we look for birth, transformation, and new beginnings. The Journey […]

  • Those infamous words: let’s make a gingerbread house

    We are totally addicted to Masterchef in this house – a TV cooking show where the contestants are pushed to the limits of endurance, before having their dishes picked apart by the odd couple of Michel Roux Jr, and Fat-Boy-who-the-fuck-is-he-anyway-Greg-Wallace. But I always say, that […]

  • Happy days

    Today didn’t start out promisingly. Boy with temperature home from school, girl with the ever-lasting screaming whinges, baby with lentils all over the floor, house a tip… But then I created some divine coconut kisses… recipe on Queen of Puddings…how I love creative cooking… and […]

  • A Wishing Day

    Today has been a sunny wishing day. Timmy has been home from school for the past two days, awaiting spots, which never arrived! I have enjoyed our couple of home-schooling days. Since we can’t formally flexi-school, then we are freestyling it. We take a day out of […]

  • If You go Down to the Woods Today…

    If you go down to the woods today you’re in for a big surprise! We were there first! Weaving our magic. We made a sun web out of catkins… And rearranged fire stones to make a heart … A home waiting for fairy folk to […]
