    Phew – It’s hot!

    Blog 19th July 2022

    Phew it’s hot, but you won’t catch me complaining…
    We’ve just come back from a fabulous holiday in France to discover that the figs are ripe and fit to burst, the bees are busy scooting around for the final forage of the season and our sweetcorn plants are reaching for the sky.

    Midsummer Madness

    Blog 27th June 2022

    I love June and, whilst it’s usually mad dogs and Englishmen that throw caution to the wind, we’ve been getting out in the midday sun – and have had a great time!

    Often with the best weather of the year, we’ve been teaching in schools, running around after swarms of bees and cooling off with regular swims in west London lakes.

  • Those who have known me a while may remember the years that I spent working with ACET teaching sex education in schools, now I delight in teaching hundreds of children each year all about ‘the Birds and the Bees’

    12 Years on and still learning

    Blog 12th April 2022

    A Time For Giving…

    Blog 15th November 2021

    ‘A Time For Giving’ – Yes, I have got Cliff Richard singing in my head…
    As we approach the end of the year, it’s a great opportunity to take stock, give thanks and plan to give gifts to both those we hold dear and those less fortunate than ourselves.

  • As the clocks fall forward, the evenings draw in and we chop wood in preparation for cosy nights in front of the fire, I’m sure I’m not the only one that’s wondering what the next couple of months will bring and how we can hold on to traditions as we continue to navigate current challenges.
