A New Era

As you may have noticed, I haven't been blogging regularly for some months now. As those of you who know me in real life know, this is because of a major upheaval in my life. I met and fell in love with someone new and we have both moved heaven and earth, including splitting up our respective marriages, to be together, which we now are. And here begins the new chapter in our lives. This year is going to see some huge changes in our lifestyle and living and working arrangements. We are hoping to be able to buy some land and start some businesses on it, including sustainability workshops for children, managing the woodland, keeping chickens and bees, growing our own food as much as possible, wood-working, maybe charcoal-burning, meditation workshops. We are hoping to gain permission to live on the land in temporary, low-impact dwellings, preferably yurts, and thereby be mortgage-free and needing much less income. So far we are just in the planning stages and much depends on things that we don't know yet, but I'm aiming to keep a record of what happens here, and also to be able to promote our businesses as each gets up and running - hence yesterday's post about my life coaching and my partner's Etsy shop. I hope some of you will be interested in our journey, as the home education of my children also continues, and my partner's 2 children also join in our adventure as and when they are with us. As Imbolc approaches, I can feel the new season starting and the time for new ventures ripening. Watch this space...

Etsy shop

Well, it's been a long time since I posted anything on my blog and I'll try to get back into the habit of updating it a bit more. Life has been hectic and included some major and fundamental changes since last September. Slowly, a new life is taking shape but there's plenty more change to come yet, probably including a house move this year.

So, here's what I wanted to say today. This is my partner's Etsy shop - he's a talented wood-worker and wood-turner and he has some lovely stuff on there - handmade rune sets, wands and such-like. He can also do commissions or make stuff to order - so contact him via his Etsy page if there's something you want to discuss.

Also, I have now got my life coaching business, Firefly Life Coaching, up and running. So, if anyone wants life coaching, please contact me! I practise from a spiritual and intuitive perspective, but I'm also fully qualified and insured and can coach by phone wherever you happen to be!

That is all for now!
