At our happiest Outdoors




One of the things we realised looking back over the last year, was that as a family unit we tend to be at our happiest and most content when we are outside. It doesn't matter whether its at the beach, the woods, on the allotment or on the moor, it just seems to be that open space surrounded by nature suits us all. So with this in mind and the fact that the children are now at ages when they can keep walking for quite a while before the youngest says 'pick me up' we have been making a conscious effort to get outside as much as possible lately. Wrapped up warm, with a flask of hot chocolate for them and coffee for us and of course a treat of something sweet like cake we have already done quite a bit of walking this year. We are lucky enough to live on the edge of Dartmoor, which is a magical moorland that covers an incredible 954 square kilometers, so gives us plenty of space to explore! And with the first signs of Spring appearing and the prospect of warmer days to come I am really looking forward to our explorations as a family this year.

How my mind wanders..............





Oh how my mind wanders at the moment. I am having terrible trouble focusing on the tasks at hand. My mind wanders off and I lose my train of thought which often ends up with me completely forgetting what it was that I was doing in the first place! With the help from visually inspiring sites like Pinterest {which I'm sure should come with a health warning along the lines of - 'not for the easily distracted' } I have allowed my mind to indulge in thoughts of the warmer weather to come and to start planning trips and adventures, on seeing images of beautiful white tulips I have found myself drifting out of shops with a bunch in hand having completely forgotten the important necessities like milk and bread! I find myself craving for a home with white walls and lack of objects which is at least helping to spur me on to de clutter, a job that I think could take forever and all of this done with a coffee in hand. I can't imagine not drinking coffee, I enjoy the whole ritual of putting the coffee pot on. I could map my days out in coffee, and I am intrigued by images of Vietnamese coffee being made and I'm very tempted to try one of these coffee filters. Maybe a change in coffee will finally help me to focus!
