Introducing Folklings.

So, my last post was titled ‘Hello September’ and we’re rapidly reaching October without me writing a single other post, so I thought I’d better get cracking!

The month so far has been filled with a return to school for the kids, a new job for me and a welcome home for Stephen. We’ve made a start on clearing our new veg plot of perennial weeds, making slow but satisfying progress. My new job has been taking up lots of my energy, and I’ve been managing everything with a cold that’s been just enough to make me feel rubbish but not enough to keep me in bed. Hopefully I can shake that off soon, because I want to spend time on doing more of the things I love. I slowed down my blogging over August for the holidays and haven’t quite got up to full speed again, but I will soon!

One of the other things I will be doing is contributing to Folklings, a beautiful new site from the wonderfully talented Annie of Manneskjur.

Beautiful and inspiring content curated by folk with a passion for simple and creative living.”

The site is updated each week with a range of inspiring content from a range of curators, of which I am incredibly flattered to be one. It’s a gentle, non-commercial site with stunning photography and the thread of slow, creative and simple living weaving all the way through it. It feels like the most perfect way to welcome the new season, curl up on the sofa with a mug of tea and be inspired. Do take a look.

As for me, this weekend sees the arrival of The Good Life Experience which I’ve been looking forward to for ages. I will be axe throwing, eating, drinking, listening to music and talks, bread making and doing a myriad of other stuff. I will also be finally meeting a range of incredible people–including Annie—who I feel like I’ve known for years yet never met. I can’t wait…

    Huzzah! Thank you for sharing! It was really nice to meet you at last and I do hope that you managed to wriggle into your tent and that you didn’t awaken to the smell of bonfire and scotch eggs 😉
