It is nice to have something natural and beautiful to look at each day without having to venture out into the sometimes rainy, windy and quite cold November days we are experiencing at the moment.
Sometimes things just work out. We have a good friend who is a blacksmith and he has taken the youngest member of our family under his wing. We are delighted that Finley can spend time with him, learning the trade and enjoying the company of a truly great craftsman.
As most of our regular readers know, we like to recycle as much as possible and incorporate found and salvaged materials into our home and garden.
In the winter we burn a lot of candles. It is relaxing and comforting to watch the flickering flames and feel the warmth they emit when the rain and snow hammer the dark windowpanes.
We have many outdoor tasks to perform all year around and at the end of a particularly cold day it is lovely to soak in a warm bath and feel the whole body relax and rejuvenate. We like to use natural and chemical free products in the bathroom and wish to share our favourite bath salt recipe with you all here. We have been making bath salts for years and like to add different herbs and oils such as Rosemary, Eucalyptus, Lavender and Hemp. Read more
Last year we were quite worried about the youngest member of our family, Finley. Like so many young people these days, he spent a lot of time in his room playing games on a screen and did not seem to have many interests apart from this. In the end, luckily, he got bored and decided it was time for a change.
You might be a bit like us. We like to have fun and go to the odd festival or gathering. When attending such an event it is nice to get in the spirit of things. Maybe wear something that you would not normally wear. Put on some special makeup or face paint.
