You don’t drown by falling in the water; you drown by staying there. Edwin Louis Cole Hello, Lovelies. We undertook a dramatic rescue operation yesterday afternoon. As I was walking up the hill to water our fruit trees my fairy friend Sokli yelled out, ‘Hey, that poor friend needs some help. Hurry! Help him! He’s […]
‘Then I was standing on the highest mountain of them all, and round about beneath me was the whole hoop of the world. And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things […]
“People who enjoy meetings should not be in charge of anything.” ~ Thomas Sowell Once upon a time, I was a member of the corporate world. My meetings lasted hours and sometimes days. I wore a suit. I was often bored, or frustrated. Every hour a meeting dragged on made me feel a little more dead inside. […]
“I think there needs to be a meeting to set an agenda for more meetings about meetings.” ~ Jonah Goldberg My PA, Trish Lyons, turned up at the farm yesterday afternoon so we could have a staff meeting.

I’m crazy for leftovers. There is something completely satisfying about cooking a large batch of something and then being able to make easy meals for days.

When you bake red capsicums they end up so sweet and tender. Yum!
“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”
“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting today?” said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.”

“Coming home to friends with wagging tails and loving hearts makes everyday a good day!” ~ Anon I’d love to be writing profound things. But the truth is what I want to write is very ordinary. We came home to the farm late yesterday. We came home to our dogs. They were SO EXCITED to […]
Be kind to yourself this week while these energies make all of us empaths more sensitive than usual.
“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like “What about lunch?” ~ A. A. Milne It’s a known fact that historically Ben won’t eat two things – Brussels Sprouts and Cottage Pie (which he calls Poo Pie!) after bad experiences at boarding school back in […]
