morning sun

Most weeks I travel 40 mins to go and visit my parents. Yesterday as I was driving, the sun was shining and it really felt Spring was on it's way! We are pretty high up and usually it's a lot cooler where we are. It felt like traveling through the season! Our daffodils are up with buds but only a couple have burst into bloom. As I drove, even just a few miles down the road the colour hit me and soon all along the side of the road was full of yellow. By the time I got to Mum's, we were in full Spring and her garden was full of pretty primroses, daffodils and other lovely flowers.

It made me really feel like I am stepping into something. God made me a promise back in January, and even gave me a time. I really had a moment driving over there yesterday that like stepping into Spring, I was stepping into His promise!

Outside, this morning looks so different. Yesterday everything was so clear. Today although the sun is SHINING LIKE MAD there is a  white mist down the valley and its just like a glowing light and the dew drops are like diamonds on the hen pen!

magpie monday :: goblets

One of my favorite presents for Christmas was a couple of beautiful goblets that match the pottery I collect ...

and last month I won on eBay these two beauties ... a large goblet and little lidded bowl ... for £1.00 and £1.50!! There was a little combined p&p but they were still a great bargain! And my goblet collection is growing, which is good as I only have 2 very small wine glasses :)

Have you found any bargains this month or been given any treasures? x

some snow and some water

We have had quite a few snow showers and days of snow this winter, but I haven't got round to taking many pictures, but this morning I grabbed my camera and went out in my dressing gown and boots and snapped a few shots!


the hen pen was c-o-v-e-r-e-d with snow!




Last Sunday, after doing the grocery shop, we decided to drive on up to Elan Valley and look at all the water pouring over the dams after all the rain ... it was spectacular!!


It was BITINGLY COLD but I did manage to take a little video ...

the woodland way

Some of you may know that I have been a little obsessed with essential oils over the last year. I surprise even myself when I think about it sometimes! These wonderful essential oils have not just helped me with my health and happiness, they are also providing an income! I have a small but growing team of oil lovers that are on this journey with me.

This amazing business is like a wonderful community, its supportive, fun, challenging, creative and pays amazingly well!

I have created a little website for our team www.thewoodlandway.net if you want to check it out!


We would love you to join us! If you have any questions, please, please just ask!

my brave boy

My little Billy-boy is not the bravest boy when it comes to interacting. He takes a little while to warm up in a crowd and usually wants a cuddle for about 20 minutes before he feels brave enough to toddle off and potter around. I think both Steve and I were very like that when we were little too.

Yesterday we went to an indoor play area with a load of friends. This play area had a tots area and then a big climbing frame area for older kits.

As usual Billy took a while to want to have a play, but once he started, he loved it!



One thing he really didn't want to do was go down the slide .... he kept climbing up the soft ladder, but then came down feet first the same way ... until about 10 minutes before we left when I was a little way away from him ... and he did it ... feet first, but he did it!!!


I love my little brave boy!

oh goodness

oh goodness this poor blog has been rather neglected this last year or so! But I guess thats what parenting does to you!

We have had a bit of an up and down year. I had a miscarriage back in November which has been heartbreaking. Billy has grown into the sweetest boy who loves the outdoors, his dogs and Shawn the Sheep. Steve has got a lot of new (well new to him) machinery, which he has had fun and not so much fun tinkering with and fixing!



I am still filling my day with essential oils and making things.
I feel like I started a bit of a wellness journey last year which I am still on. I have a lot to learn and a long way to go, but its all baby steps in the right direction!

I have so many plans and goals for this year.
Grow my oils business (if you are interested in trying essential oils, then please check out my website or our team website)
Declutter - basically have a HUGE clear out and sort out!
Make some headway with the garden and make the yard a nice area to be in!
Do some more of Offa's Dyke walk that mum and I started a few years ago ... and just do some more walk around our home.

I am so excited about this year though :)
