1) I grew up with goats and anytime I am around them it feels like home. And as an adult I have developed a huge affection for the Lamancha. I mean, look at her. I can’t even.  2) I also love farm dogs. This is Frank. And when you have a 17 yo pug who hasn’t played fetch for years, you realize just how willing you would be to play fetch with Frank for hours.  3) We finally made it out to a tour @stepladdercreamery . What a great day. And although I knew this before we went, I was reminded that they make the best chèvre I have EVER tasted. It’s pretty incredible.
A fractious morning, which culminated in a ‘family meeting’ (oh how I used to dread those as a child! ๐Ÿ˜‚) and a whole lot of apologies flying around... then fresh air, ducks, a playground and a picnic - I love that getting outside always seems to hold the key to redeeming a day! Anyone else find that?? #savouringtheseason #thegreatoutdoors #freshairfixeseverything #mytinytribe #curiouslittleexplorers #liferoundours #childhoodunplugged
Today, we dodged the downpour of rain and managed to squeeze in a trip to the beach, followed by a 4km walking trek where we saw kangaroos and listened to the kookaburras sing.
Saying goodbye to the last weekend of summer ๐Ÿ’ซ I can’t believe that autumn equinox is two days away! How time flies. I plan on cutting all the flowers from my garden, then dry them and hang from my walls as autumnal decoration. I love dried flowers so much - maybe because they don’t fade or die away.  Wishing you a wonderfully sunny weekend and sending you abundant equinox blessings from my heart. X
Hello Saturday! After the busy Summer season we've experienced here this year, top of our list to visit in September was St Ives. The beaches are golden and with a beautiful blue sky, golden sand and palms you would think you were somewhere tropical. We started with a trip to the Tate. I was blown away with the views from their windows to Porthmeor and the roof tops beyond in such glorious weather. These photos will light up the darkest of days in the coming Winter months. Making the most of the morning with a little walk while the sun's still shining. Have a wonderful day and enjoy!

Is there any better way to start your day than your sleep thief child having a lie in?!๐Ÿ˜ feeling like a new woman today and going to have a little adventure day with my fav and make the most of this extra little patch of sunshine โ˜€๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ #fridayfeeling
Mama nature provides the best treasures, better than anything found in a toy shop. These treasures smell good, they feel good, they come in so many shapes & colours, each has its own story.. & they’re full of life force ๐ŸŒฟโœจ
I was thinking today, why do I like spring so much more than Autumn? There’s so many things to look forward to in Autumn. And I think it’s the thought that once Autumn is here winter is just around the corner. And that can only mean dark, cold days. I don’t mind some cold weather, but for me the colder months do drag and I long for spring to come again. So for today I’m throwing it back to some fun things we’ve done in Autumn and thought I’d share my bucket list of things to look forward to. ๐Ÿ‚ visit a pumpkin patch, we love it at @farmercopleys ๐Ÿ‚ crisp autumn walks ๐Ÿ‚ baking, although I may not be able to eat what I bake if I’m sticking to dairy free ๐Ÿ˜ญ ๐Ÿ‚ dressing up for Halloween ๐Ÿ‚ taking part in the #autumnhashtagchallenge with @littlepaperswan ๐Ÿ‚ and plenty of cosy nights at home. . . . Tell me some things you’re looking forward to this Autumn. Give me some ideas and help me get excited for the season ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ๐ŸŽƒ . . . This week’s prompt from @perfectprompts is Autumn bucket list #perfectprompts
I can’t find the words to explain why hedgerow doodles are quite so soul-soothing. But they are. Especially at this time of year and especially when a spherical wren pops by to serenade you. ๐Ÿ’š
Best buds since 2017... loved our day out on Tuesday! Fresh air and friends... the best kind of Tuesday morning... #oureliasboy #littlefriends #savouringtheseason #littleexplorers #letkidsbekids #curiouslittleexplorers
The prettiest glass house from our visit to @rhshydehall a couple of weekends ago. Also a quick reminder that the first sale @weald_preloved is tonight at 8pm. ๐ŸŒฟ

This picture makes me laugh so much... Ben's pulling that face because I made him sit on a tree stump that he felt was dirty... Apparently this is different to wrapping his legs around trees to climb them ๐Ÿ˜‚
Tomato party @ottolenghi using all the tomatoes we have grown in the garden along with oregano and mint which are still going strong with fregola, couscous and tarragon as well. Going back to cookery books I’ve had a long time such as ‘Plenty’ is such a pleasure when I remember recipes like this.  #icookedacookbookrecipe  #ottolenghi  #ottolenghiplenty  #plentyottolenghi #cookingathome #eatwelllivewell #feedfeed #foodforfoodies #savouringtheseason #seasonalcooking #instafoodies #lovetoeat #londonfood #inmykitchentoday #londonfoodie #myopenkitchen #seasonalfood #atmytable #eattherainbow #eatingwiththeseasons #vegetarianrecipes #saladdays #igfoodie #scrumptiousautumn # #vegetarianfood #healthyfood #eatseasonal #eattherainbow๐ŸŒˆ #
Plus how cute are these cyclamen with their little tendrils?? Popping up all over the garden. More of what looks good in my garden at the moment on stories... ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒธ
Good morning.  No exclamation mark today, which might give a clue as to my *slightly* downbeat mood. Spoiler alert: this isn’t a moan, it really isn’t, but are there any other small business owners out there who find it hard to keep motivated at times?  Especially those who are a one (wo)man band. I have days where I feel super motivated and have bags of energy, and others where I feel the polar opposite and I’m paralysed indecision about what to do next. Then those niggling doubts kick in and I wonder, am I doing things right and, is this really worth it? So, my question today is this: how do you keep motivated when you’re having a “down” day? ๐Ÿคท‍โ™€๏ธ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  #greatoutdoors #aquietstyle #liveauthentic #momentslikethese #daysofsmallthings #liveunscripted #simplejoys #livefolk #itsthesimplethings #theslowdowncollective #littlestoriesofmylife #slowliving #liveauthentic #momentsofmine #holdthemoments #weekendmood #workwiththeseasons #simplebeautyseeker #savouringtheseason #seasonspoetry #moodcollectors #capturethequiet #quietinthewild #eveninglight #naturallightphotography #thewildernessoutdoors #myeverydaymagic
I love how a simple picture can hold so many happy feelings and memoriesโœจ On the day this picture was taken, my sweet husband and I drove an hour away to enjoy the almost-autumn weather on one of our favorite hiking trails ๐Ÿ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿƒ He has been traveling so much for work this year that I treasure every single moment we are together, even the insignificant ones where he is driving, I'm knitting, and we are having a jam session together in the car! ๐Ÿ’š PS. I am absolutely in love with EVERYTHING about this #warmembraceslouchy kit from @essenceofautumn ๐Ÿคค The yarn is incredible, the pattern is tons of fun, and they go together beautifully! Sheryl has several gorgeous color schemes on her website, and I highly recommend that you check them out if you haven't already!! ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿงก๐Ÿงก
Not the most striking photo from our week in Anglesey. Just a lovely reminder of a delicious, post lunch snoozette ... interrupted by Barney of course. . . . . . #welshlandscape #welshcoastline #angleseycoastalpath #sanddune #seascapes #itsthesimplethingsinlife #thislittlemoment_ #documentingmydays #savouringtheseason #chocolatecockapoo #cockapoolife #dogsandbeaches
Another slither of a doodle. It was too lovely a day to waste indoors so I popped over to #longshawestate to soak up the sunshine and gorgeous September light. Longshaw is definitely one of my favourite doodle spots in the Peak District, especially on a quiet day. ๐Ÿ’š
I don’t know if there’s anything more Salem than dog walks through the cemetery.๐Ÿพ๐ŸŒณโšฐ๏ธ
Loving the seasonal shift in the garden with the mix of blooms and dried seed heads ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ’› My roses have sprung into life again with this warm autumn weather!! Have a lovely evening all X
Travel journal 4: Belgium  Well, Belgium.. what do I do with you? ๐Ÿ˜‚ Do I remove the people, do I write down what I want to remember in hopes that my censored journal will eventually replace my memories? It's not that far off, actually. I won't lie here. But what's the harm in only keeping note of the good things? Oh, I know. It's easier to repeat mistakes if you gloss over the bad. But look, I couldn't have seen this coming. No way. My time in Belgium was full of twists and turns that would have made Agatha Christie gasp (yes you can insert the name of a modern author who writes great plot twists, it's just that nothing will shock me more than The Murder Of Roger Ackroyd did, what a masterpiece). So let's talk about the land. Let's talk about the day I came from France. I loved France, let me emphasise that. With its mint everything, bubble tea, pains au chocolate and the kindest people you can imagine, it was heaven. And yet. When I noticed the scenery change into familiar rolling hills and tiniest villages, I felt a wave of relief wash over me. I had arrived. I didn't need to go any further. The brick houses radiated calm, and a sense of caramel stuck in the air. The conductors changed from French to Flamish and I swear the train seats were made out of speculoos. The land of waffles had always been a sort of paradise, definitely a sanctuary, brought to life in my mind through the many stories of my granny, told to me through glowing eyes and excited gestures. It was the place where, finally, everybody cared for her, where she could be completely herself. Austria didn't spare her any kindness for decades, it was hardship and worries for way too long. But Belgium. Belgium meant sweets and secret gifts from caring nuns, groups of friends to just be girls with, it meant late-night cinema screenings and escapes to the sea, it meant frittes with Belgian pickles and time to write. It was full, it was safe, it was home. // continues in Comments //
There’s a change in the air... A slight chill in the mornings giving way to sunshine & a crisp breeze, perfect weather for meandering along winding country lanes framed by hedgerows full of vibrant berries and as the nights start to draw in candles & log fires are lit. Truly my favourite time of the year ๐Ÿ‚ ๐Ÿโค๏ธ #autumn #savouringtheseason #seasonalliving #naturespalette #autumncolours #countrywalks #countryliving #mycountrylife #englishcountryside #meandering #slowliving #aquietlife #noticingnature #naturaltherapy #mindfulnessinnature #gratitude #andbreathe #scenery_lovers #scenery #nature_lovers #igerslancashire
