Ok so many of you may be thinking isn’t it a bit late for a ‘New Year’ post…?!! For me, however 1st February marks a significant turn in the seasonal calendar and a time for new beginnings. Recognised as ‘Imbolc’ in the Pagan tradition it’s also when the earth seems to awaken from it’s winter … More New Year… New Blog!
It already seems so long ago doesn’t it?!! The kids are back at school, nights are drawing in and mornings have a cool chill that suddenly appeared overnight… yes it’s September and summer is soon to be a fleeting memory. We’ve been pretty indulgent this summer (by usual standards!), taking quite a bit of time … More Memories of Summer
I started this blog two years ago because I wanted to share the amazing and beautiful things about our unique way of life… to inspire and encourage other people to appreciate the world around them. It was the first time I used the name ‘Positive Earth’ which now encompasses everything we do, and the first … More Starting Over…
I haven’t really been in the mood for writing lately… I don’t know why, just other priorities I think! My blog has become one of those things that never quite makes it to the top of my ‘to-do list… So I was sat here reading… chilling a bit after a day of heavy mental activity… … More Bamboo
Is it really March already? Doesn’t seem like it with the weather we’re having! That said, today has been a little brighter in Yorkshire and there are signs that spring is perhaps on its way. Apologies to any of you who have been following this blog, for the radio silence so far this year. We’ve … More 2018: An Update!
Brrr…. Winter has arrived all of a sudden! Don’t know about the rest of the country but up north it’s certainly dropped cold and we do find ourselves wondering whether living in a caravan was such a good idea! We got through last winter quite easily, but in fairness it was quite a mild one … More Christmas in a Caravan
Until I discovered Shell Island, I’m afraid to say Wales was never on my wish-list of ‘places to visit’! It’s somewhat surprising therefore that not only have we returned every year since but the group of friends joining us seems to grow each year too! I’ve never really been one for holidaying in the same … More Our kind of paradise!
How fast do the weeks pass by!! It’s two weeks since we came back from our family holiday in Wales – two weeks really?!! I had intended on writing something as soon as we got back… to share with you a few highlights of the trip and this beautiful little corner of the UK which … More Holidays…
It’s almost a year since we moved into our caravan and fast approaching three years since we gave up regular ‘9 to 5’ employment, to focus on our business and to start changing our way of life. Both of these were huge scary steps – perhaps even blind leaps of craziness, as we didn’t have … More “I beg to dream and differ”
A couple of weeks back we traded at Sheffield Steam Rally for the third year running… Now this may seem a bit of a random event at first glance but we camp over for the weekend and it’s actually one of my favourites. From a business perspective it’s fairly ordinary really – we sell enough … More Full Steam Ahead
