The Art of Doing Nothing

There’s been a bit of a theme in this blog over the past few months… about slowing down, lowering the expectations I put on myself and letting go of a ‘need to achieve’… The circumstances that were forced upon us in March induced a much steadier pace of life and a re-organisation of priorities, allContinue reading “The Art of Doing Nothing”

Lessons from the Lockdown

In my last post I approached the idea of designing a new world… of using this time of ‘lockdown’ to reflect on what is truly important to us.  To rethink our priorities and our values.  Now as we approach the possibility of businesses re-opening, are we eager to return to ‘normal’ or have we realisedContinue reading “Lessons from the Lockdown”

Designing a New World

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!Continue reading “Designing a New World”

Memories of Summer

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 timeContinue reading “Memories of Summer”

Our Wild Herb Garden

This past month (or more!) has been a busy one and I’ve been a tad guilty of doing exactly what this blog set out to prevent… rushing through my days without stopping to appreciate the small stuff… or even worse, the not so small but pretty amazing stuff! We’ve helped to fit out a newContinue reading “Our Wild Herb Garden”

Starting Over…

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 firstContinue reading “Starting Over…”

2018: An Update!

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’veContinue reading “2018: An Update!”

Christmas in a Caravan

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 oneContinue reading “Christmas in a Caravan”
