This road we’re walking on is exciting, but it’s far from easy at times. Today’s to do list included everything from popping into Southampton for a few essentials from Go Outdoors, to packing our suitcases, to organising some bits of furniture which my wonderful sister-in-law Sarah will be taking off our hands as she starts setting up her new home.

But I have a comfy chair and the turret window I am sitting in allows me to look all around at the trees and gardens Continue reading
Once upon a time there was a monkey. This monkey noticed that in the river there was a fish splashing around and clearly struggling against the flow of the water.
