Rewilding Our Life - Days 17 and 18


Thursday, we went to The Eden Project for dinner in the Mediterranean Biome, which is as wild is it got that day...
We are struggling to keep up with the activities from the challenge, as they arrive via email daily & usually long after we have left the house - so it's difficult. 
We are still making the effort to be mindfully outside for at least 30 minutes every day, but we're just doing things our way - which suits us & maybe we'll incorporate rock sculptures & conversations with the younger generation on others days - If or when the opportunity arises.
Anyway, back to Eden... We arranged for Bebe to go into respite for a few days, so this enabled us to get out in the evening...

We enjoyed a couple of hours amongst indoor wildness...


Time with Magie & Patrick...

And a vegan feast...


We were the last ones to leave...

As always, a lovely night.


On Friday after work we were exhausted - caring for Bebe, being up at 6am & sometimes not getting into bed until after midnight, with some nights disturbed by Bebe trying to leave the house or knocking us up to see if we're ok is just so tiring. We expected to be out every night making the most of our long weekend of freedom, but no - the last 2 nights we've been in bed for 10pm!!! 

Friday's rewilding was popping into the back garden before retiring, Sime zoomed in on the moon between the clouds.

I love Eden but have only been during the day with my children. The food looks great.

It all looks wonderful. I think Bebe needs to have a drop of Sherry to help her sleep, my old Nan used to swear by it :-)
Eden has been on our "must visit" list for so long, I look forward to seeing it all.

Our Neighbours

The ladies next door have been giving birth in the field. Their babies are like any other babies - they sleep, they feed, they follow their mums everywhere, they run around, then fall asleep again.  These little beauties are completely unaware of their fate... But we know... And this is one thing which makes living here difficult. How can people eat other beings without feeling terrible?     It just doesn't make sense. Both the posters are from the  Cornwall Vegans  website. If you are in Cornwall or will be on Saturday 22nd April - do support this event! Perhaps you have been considering veganism - this  Vegan Starter Kit  will help you to get started and if you have any questions, need help or ideas for recipes - just ask, we are always happy to talk to folks who want to change their diet for the better. And in case you haven't seen this on iplayer - Here is  Simon Amstell's Carnage . Please, please think seriousl

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

Spring Forward

We are gradually coming out of our winter hibernation and two weeks of pet sitting on The Roseland in Cornwall has been a wonderful way to slowly "wake up" and enjoy being with one of our favourite furry chums. We are all enjoying being outside more and after 5 years of caring for our little pal - we have finally made progress with her ability to listen, focus and follow commands! She has always been a delight to be with, but her excitable behaviour tends to get out of control...perhaps she is calming down as she gets older or maybe we are more relaxed around her. We have certainly felt our bond with her has strengthened over the last two weeks and in turn she is eager to please. She can now have time off her lead and is thoroughly enjoying beach play time, with excellent recall.  We had almost given up on the idea that Mabel could enjoy such freedom, so it is a joy to us all! We do hope that she will continue with her Mum, but are confident that we will slip back into our ne
