Jubilee Wharf

Yesterday it was cold, but sunny & we had to take Hugo to a circus meeting at Jubilee Wharf. Normally, we would relish popping into Miss Peapod's, but in our quest to save money, we refrained...

We did manage to call on Rose & Asa - we got to see their "Pot Of Gold" which they have started for our family holiday next year. We also briefly caught up with Sal, who was working, but nice to get the chance to say hello...

Last night, we had the coldest night since last winter, so we slept in long johns & thermal tops... We even had to get up & find an extra blanket. Must have been the clear sky!

Cold again tonight & although it's not nice, we all agree that the wood burner has made a massive difference - it's just wonderful!

Hi you guys its been freezing here talk about brass monkeys. I have the hot water bottle two quilts on top of the duvet cover and then dressing gowns flung on top plus the hot water bottle keeps me nice and warm. Reminds me of when we were little and used to go to bed dressed in thick wincyette pjs, thick socks, jumpers, dressing gowns, blankets and quilts and hot water bottles days when you only had one fire in the house if you were lucky and used to get dressed in front of the fire and have steaming bowls of porridge for breakfast cold but happy days. Would kill for an Aga and a wood burner. Hope you guys are okay and ready for Christmas utter bedlam here as usual.

Take care

Cold here too, so I gave in and put the heating on after the sun had set. I bought a couple of long sleeved thermal tops and wear those to bed -teamed with my fleecy pyjama bottoms and fluffy socks I'm toasty warm, and occasionally wake up too hot- but that could be down to my age! You did well to ignore the temptation of Miss Peapod's!

Yes, it's been freezing this week!

A stove makes such a difference!

We only have our stove and one storage heater in our little cottage.

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…

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
