I did a little experiment recently… and thought I would share with you what I’ve learnt. As part of my #30DaysWild Challenge (a campaign by the Wildlife Trusts which I do every year) I decided I would ditch the phone and laptop for a whole 24 hours and see if I could be gadget free … More Ditching the Devices
Some thoughts on moving beyond anger and frustration; Finding peace in nature and changing ourselves in order to change the world. … More Transcendence
It feels like an understatement to say the world has changed somewhat since my last post… For the past few weeks I’ve felt driven to document the history that we are creating right now, but yet too exhausted to put pen to paper… lacking the head-space to fully process my thoughts… it’s all too surreal! … More Designing a New World
Despite my love for the natural world and appreciation for the changing seasons, it’s fair to say I’ve had quite enough of the weather just lately. Is it just me or is there a connection between the division and hatred sweeping our country and Mother Nature showing us the strength of her wrath? Like an … More Weather and Walking
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.

A project aimed at highlighting the benefits of spending time with nature and therefore encouraging more people to appreciate and protect the natural world around us. I have always been passionate about protecting our … More A Wild Weekend
Bats!!! What first comes to mind when you see a picture of a bat? Answers in the comments please! Is it vampires, caves and spooky stories? Or an important and protected mammal which is a vital part of our native wildlife? I know they’re not everyone’s cup of tea but personally, I find them fascinating…. … More Not just for Halloween!
Late to the party I know, but this week has been the 10th anniversary of ‘Zero Waste Week’ so I thought I’d find out what it’s all about and also reflect on my own journey to reduce the amount of plastic our household throws away. Launched in 2008 by Rachelle Strauss, Zero Waste Week is … More #ZeroWasteWeek
Now this is a topic I’ve been wanting to cover for a while, as the use of plastic is a real bug-bear of mine… I hate it but yet can’t seem to avoid it no matter how hard I try! Reducing and re-using waste materials has been the driving force behind our lifestyle and business … More My War on Plastic
