Rewilding Our Lives

We have decided to take part in a 30 day challenge to rewild our lives. It starts tomorrow & it simply means we have to mindfully be outside in nature for 30 minutes a day. It's not always going to be easy, but now the nights are lighter - we want to make the most of it... Whether Bebe will join in, we don't know... Maybe it would be more enjoyable to do it without her. We shall see! We Are Wildness Kay & Sime xx

Candle Power

Our Earth Hour  celebration was lovely, although Bebe was confused & kept changing her mind about eating with us... In the end she ate before we switched the lights off & joined us for a candlelit game of Trivia Pursuit afterwards. Because of Bebe's sundowning condition, she automatically thinks that it's cold when dark... So even though it was very warm next to the woodburner - she spent the evening in her coat! She still managed to answer lots of questions... We were very impressed! Kay & Sime xx

Earth Hour 2014

For the past few years, we've been to our friends' at Cotna  for Earth Hour. We have always shared a meal & when the weather's been good - we've also enjoyed a bonfire. This year is different for us...  Bebe is here, so in less than an hour - we shall be eating a candlelit meal cooked on the woodburner. Is anyone else switching off for  Earth Hour ? If so, we'd love to hear about your evening. Bye for now. Kay & Sime xx

We Did It!

Hello! At last, it feels like we have finally found the right balance of work, Bebe, home & play... It's been a tiring few months of trying to do far too much, while coping with Bebe, who after the initial honeymoon period - has struggled to settle. We realise that she will never truly feel at home & instead, she talks of going home on a daily basis.  We have thought on many occasions since Bebe moved in with us that we have perhaps made a mistake bringing her here & that she would in fact be happier in a care home with people her own age. When she's with us, she often tells us that we are boring & that she is bored... She doesn't want to get involved in anything & her ability to concentrate is very poor. There are fleeting moments when she snaps out of her misery & 9 times out of 10 - it's because we put her music on.  We decided that for Bebe's wellbeing & our sanity, she needed to increase her days at daycare. First she did 3
