Blog Award


What a surprise!

Pattypan from Tarragon & Thyme has very kindly passed on the award & this is what she had to say:
I love catching up with these two honest hardworking couple and their efforts to simplify their lives without leaving an imprint on this world of ours. I love the fact that they are not scared to be themselves or that they conform to what other people think they should be doing.  They are delightfully "alternative" and passionate about everything they are involved with.  They have home educated their children as well as running their own business and have been good role models in daring to be different and meeting their own ethical requirements rather than follow like sheep along a well trodden path.  There are always other choices and I like their honesty, sincerity  and most definitely their love for each other and their humour.
Thank you Pattypan!!! xx 

Liebster is a German word meaning dear & the award is a way to show support to bloggers who currently have less than 200 followers.

Elizabeth lives in a beautiful part of Southern California & shares wonderful photos & thoughts about her life.

Karin writes about her steps towards sustainable living, current affairs, spirituality & peace. She lives in South East England. 

Gai doesn't post very often, but when she does - she writes about life in Bristol, family, religion & sustainable living.

Mel lives in Canada with her family, she grows & preserves her own food, has a fantastic sense of humour & takes blog friends on a journey through the highs & lows of life. She occasionally talks about some sort of sport too...

Pattypan is always on the go - busying about, making, cooking, baking, preserving & ironing! An inspiration with her frugal living, lovely recipes & helpful advice.

Nic thinks her life's not very interesting, but she's getting married next year & is watching what she eats. She shares lovely foodie photos & hopefully she'll post more in the future!

Sooz is a vegan, knitting gardener. She is very keen to live as ethically & sustainably as possible & has a very happy & colourful blog!

Nic & family have had an amazing life-changing adventure this year. They have WWOOFed around the UK & are soon going to be starting a new life - though they haven't revealed exactly what they will be doing yet...


Thank you all for keeping us entertained, enthralled & educated. 
If any of you would like to have the Liebster Badge - please feel free to copy it & play the game properly!!! :)

We do have lots of blogs on our roll, but we probably haven't looked at most of them since first following them, we're hopeless. 
Perhaps this Winter we'll catch up...




The Rebels xx

To my favorite rebels - thank you for mentioning my blog. Some sort of sport - good thing I like you so much otherwise I would be upset.
Thank you Kath & Pattypan - you both make us feel very special!

Karin - Danke! Afraid had to google that bit of German...

Thanks for the recommendation. You're right. I haven't been posting very often. Not from lack of having anything to say, but from not being sufficiently organised to get it online. Will try to do better in the New Year. Now where have I heard that before?
Thanks very much!! What lovely words about my little 'ole blog! :) xxx

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 ric

Diet And Drugs

Some of you know about my fight with Graves Disease, an auto immune system disorder, which causes an overactive thyroid. Since I was diagnosed 7 years ago, I have made it my business to know everything I possibly could about the condition & this has probably saved my life. I have blood tests on a regular basis & in November last year, I was told that my T4 levels are normal & again in January the same.  My thyroid stimulating hormone was finally starting to work too, after 7 years of lying dormant, so I suggested I came off the anti thyroid drug & my GP's response was to continue for a while longer. A month ago, I rang my GP & suggested again that I come off the drug or at least halve it, as I was feeling so well  & was concerned about the drug pushing me into being under active. Again, she said to be patient & they would send for me when it's time for a blood test. I don't normally do as I'm told, but decided to stick with it a b

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
