Under An English Sky Yarns

Do you know, I have found this transition from homeschooling to trying to figure out what my new purpose so difficult. I am pretty sure that it is a problem that most mums who have wrapped up their homeschooling have to navigate. As you know I started a degree last year and really enjoyed learning about the law. I thought that …

Dandelion Yarn

I love how this time of year just keeps throwing up seasonal treasures week after week. Often these treasures are fleeting like the bluebells and others last a little longer like the cow parsley that is flooding the verges at the moment. About two weeks ago the fields, lawns, verges and country lanes were awash with yellow dandelions. I just love …

Initially I listed three just to get a feel of the market. Well they all sold out so there must be a market for …

Homemaking Monday – Running a Small Business

How many other homemakers combine keeping home and family with a small business? On Saturday the house was rather quite. Our girls travelled down to Oxford to take part in the National Young Ringers competition (they came second btw), so DH and I had the whole day to ourselves.  I spent just over an hour in the morning finishing off some …
