Last Night...

It's always nice to get-together with all the kids... 

It's also very rare!

But last night we managed to all see the old man's band play...

Which was a nice thing to do, though I have to admit - I really didn't like the pub!
There were certainly a few characters around. 
Being country bumpkins - a Friday night in a large town centre pub isn't really my idea of a good time & I just found myself feeling very uncomfortable in that environment, just so glad the kids were there too!

There wasn't any trouble, but it felt like there could have been at any time!

The band played well, but only the landlady of the pub seemed to really appreciate them.
Such a shame for great musicians to play to a disinterested crowd, but that's the way it goes...
 I suppose these experiences will only spur the guys on to get what they really want & take a step up to the next level - where they deserve to be! 
Here's a video of them performing California from last night.



Bye for now.

Sorry you didn't have a good time. At least the kids were there with you.

I wrote a reply to this yesterday and blogger lost it, so I shall try again.

It was pretty noisy in that pub, wasn't it? Let's hope it won't be long before the band is playing to audiences who actually want to here them, rather than just happen to be in the same venue, although some people may have been more aware of the music than seems the case.

I know what you mean about having all the family together. I'm looking forward to this weekend, when we are all going out together.
Hi Mel & Karin, thanks for your comments... Always nice being with the kids!

Take Time

How often do you take time to be thoughtful and quiet? To breathe and be in nature? Do you start your day slowly, even when busy? 
We like to spend our mornings gently waking - reading to each other, writing, sometimes singing, making breakfast and taking time to leisurely eat and digest our food before we begin our day. We choose to live in the slow lane, from where we observe others rushing through their days, often stressed and with a need to fill every moment doing what they consider to be meaningful.  We feel no guilt in being lazy and happily sit around chatting instead of doing what we loosely planned to do. You may think it's procrastination, but we prefer to think of it as "going with the flow". There is more to life than filling your days with stuff, working hard, keeping up with your neighbours and it's not until you get off that treadmill that you can see for yourself just how great life can be. Part of the process for us in slowing down was to write mor…

Soil, Soul and Society

Please take some time to watch this video.
Take some time to look at your life and learn how to live differently.

If  you are unhappy, make changes to your life.
Find gratitude in each day.

Try not to criticise others and instead feel compassion.

Enjoy time in nature.
Be quiet and calm.

There is so much anger and stress surrounding many of you out there at the moment...
Take care of yourselves, take time out from the news and stop worrying about how many times your neighbours are venturing out. Occupy yourselves doing something new and interesting instead.

Most of our days are spent weeding, planting, cooking and eating.
We go to bed earlier than we have done in years, usually aching...pleasantly so though!
We are learning about growing vegetables, enjoying playing with soil and it feels good spending lots of time out on the land.



Sending you all much love,

Kay and Sime xx





Nettles

Our garden yesterday.
Tall Nettles TALL nettles cover up, as they have done These many springs, the rusty harrow, the plough Long worn out, and the roller made of stone: Only the elm butt tops the nettles now.
This corner of the farmyard I like most: As well as any bloom upon a flower I like the dust on the nettles, never lost Except to prove the sweetness of a shower.
~ Edward Thomas ~
Every time we venture out to pick nettles, Sime always goes on about this poem!

Anyway, thought I'd share with you the article I've written for next month's Parish Magazine...


Our hedgerows are coming alive with food aplenty, but hardly anyone really notices the nettles that surround us, they grow quietly while using their juices to produce a medicine that can bring health. Anaemia, arthritis, rickets, tuberculosis, respiratory diseases, colds, catarrh & lymphatic problems can all benefit from this wonderful wild & free super food.
Nettles are rich in calcium, iron, phosphorus, potass…
