Well, today is the day where I usually create content like videos for my YouTube channel, because the girls are in childcare. It’s also a morning to recalibrate and refill the well.

If you read my last post, you may have noticed that I have a slight issue with the fences in the garden (!) Fear not – Stage One (Project Conifer) has now been implemented! Because Kendal is the Place Where Rain Never Stops, this took a couple weeks in total because the top foot of…

I’ve been a bit quiet the past few weeks. Shh… Okay, so MAJOR shit (both good and the really nutty kind) is going down at the moment!
