Day 5… A patio with a view today… a little peek at the gardens of our current abode here in Spain…

web-large-IMG_2559

It’s warmer outside here in our (for the next three months) Spanish house. The inside of the house, at this time of year is not warm at all. I usually do some cooking to get warm and this morning we made a big pot of vegetable soup before coming outside to have coffee in the sunshine. While inspecting the garden and pulling up the odd weed we notice lots of flowers appearing. It takes a while to get used to such a change in climate. But it does still get cold here when the sun disappears and so we need…

Day 4… So engrossed in a project today I nearly forgot to blog!

2015-02-14 15.42.46

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope all your days are filled with love and not just today… but it’s nice to focus attention on love and have everyone else do it too! Today wonderful things are happening and I am so grateful. My friend sent me a message to say her baby had been born and I really, really LOVE this friend! I am so happy for her. Another friend’s daughter has got engaged today… mmm mmm love, love, love… more love and just when I couldn’t stop thinking about LOVE I got an email with this great free gift from…

Day 3… changing ‘challenge’ to ‘fun!’

2015-02-12 15.51.59

Since I believe thoughts and words are energy and have the power to cast spells impacting our realities I am therefore using the wrong word by calling this a blog ‘challenge!’ Nooooo!!! So, I am changing this to ’30 days of blog FUN!’ Then hopefully it will be a fun project and not feel like a challenging climb up a very steep mountain. Unfortunately today has felt exactly like that! Everything is feeling today like one of those dreams where your feet get stuck in a mysterious gloopy ground whilst being chased by the nasty monster! So, although the sun…

Day 2 of blog challenge… Playing in my journals.

20150212_155031

Sometimes when I start a new page in one of my journals I am inspired first by a quote and this is one of those pages. As I said in yesterday’s post, I just don’t feel like unpacking all my art and craft stuff yet. I haven’t defined a space to work and as I am just settling in, I don’t like to be overwhelmed with my stuff! But, this doesn’t mean I don’t have access to my journals and a small amount of art supplies which I keep within really easy reach. I have a tiny, tiny ‘art office’…

Setting myself a 30 Day Blog Challenge!

web-large-IMG_2543

After realising that I haven’t updated this blog in about two months I thought I would set myself a 30 day challenge; to write a short post everyday, for the next 30 days, without exception! I have seen other bloggers do this and loved following each day to discover a small snippet of real life rather than their usual longer and more edited posts. So here goes! Day One… Today marks our two week anniversary of us living in Spain. Our camper van is not finished yet but it doesn’t matter as we are house-sitting for a few months and…

Part Two… of listening to my heart

web-large-IMG_2464

As an adult, I didn’t expect to be following procedures and rules just because ‘someone says so.’ Carrying on teaching didn’t align with what my inner soul KNEW to be true. As children, some of us are used to hearing… ‘because I said so,’ and yet there I was, an intelligent professional adult, earning a good income as a teacher (see how successful I was!!) and I was following stupid rules that I didn’t believe in. All those wonderful inspirational reasons that I went into teaching for, that I gave all of my energy and precious life time to, that…

Learning to listen to my heart… part one

2014-10-19 09.36.50

Over a year ago I created a morning routine to support my well-being and I rarely stray from that, but this morning, I did. I left the house early to go for a walk and to enjoy the rare sunshine. A crisp, bright frost and a brisk stomp (as my nephew would call it) out into nature. Very uplifting I have to say. And I was thinking, I haven’t updated this blog in so long. I wondered why that was… and I know that I have been hiding as per usual. But why? Writing this blog makes me vulnerable and…

We have moved 54 times in the past year!

2014-06-29 16.20.29-1

I have not updated this blog for about 2 months as I have been completely hiding and hibernating in 10 or 11 different places…  a bit shell-shocked by the pace of life in the UK. But, as we are coming up to our one year anniversary of when we began travelling on the ‘no plan plan’, I decided to write something at last. And, just for fun yesterday, we worked out how many different places we have stayed during our first nomadic year. And it is 54 (I think!). I hadn’t realised just how many it has actually been.     It…
