Handmade Coconut, Lavender and Chamomile Balm

Coconut, Lavender and Chamomile Balm and Bath Melts

A few of my favourite things..

Beautiful

Adventures in Devon

Antique Shop, Buckfastleigh

Frey and I took a little trip down to Devon this past weekend to stay with his Daddy in his lovely new cottage. It’s not so far away at all, but it’s a place we haven’t really explored, it was so lovely to get…

Joyful days in Mells

Flowers of Joy

I discovered Mells when I first moved here five years ago, and it’s always been one of my favourite places to visit. There’s a lovely village shop and cafe, miles of walks along the riverside amongst scenery that always feels a little bit magical, and an…

A Bank Holiday Brocante

Vintage Brocante

Frey and I were up and about early on May Day Bank Holiday, to drive down to the beautiful Larmer Tree Gardens for the Vintage Brocante. If there is one thing that will get me up early in the morning on a Bank Holiday (apart from a baby who wakes…

Living Arrows 14/52 – Frey’s first word

Frey and Bob

Of course Frey has been chatting for some time now – and he says ‘Mama’ and ‘Dada’ and a noise that sounds like ‘Quack quack’ when we play with the ducks in the bath. He also says ‘Baba’ whenever he sees our…
