To Get Lost

There’s a feeling I miss, the feeling of happily getting lost. It comes with being in a new area, city, country, the sense of wandering without an aim. To fall into the details of a place that isn’t known to you. This year it’s been nature that I’ve got lost in, which I love, but…

Golden Kisses

Golden hour, Norfolk, September 2020. Throughout this month I – along with many others – am taking part in NanoPoblano, the Internet’s least-official November blog challenge. Click here to see the full list of Cheer Peppers.

Cley next the Sea

In September, which feels so long ago – and yet, in this year, also not long ago – we went to one of our happy places. For a week, at the end of the month, we camped under the Norfolk skies. It was a week of all kinds of weather, including gale force wind and…

Walks and Talks

I took my sister into the woods today, during one of our regular walks and talks. There are barely many leaves left on the trees, save for a few that still have a head of orange. Autumn has almost passed; we’ve reached the stage where we are cradling two seasons. Look up, and it’s winter,…

Into the Woods

One of the highlights this weekend was the walk in the woods yesterday. It had been raining, but we were optimistic – I kept saying to the boy that it did not matter if we had to walk in the rain, it would make it quieter. We were walking for less than an hour, with…

Recording Life

Photography first captured my attention when I was a young girl, and my parents got me a small film camera. The photographs I took with that camera were not any that would interest many – pictures of our cats, dancing around with my childhood family friends at New Year, and random shots of my Barbies….

Glittering Eyes

A gust of wind created a magical moment this afternoon, a flurry of autumnal leaves detached from a tree, swirling beautifully in the air, slowly making their way down to earth; nature’s very own theatre. It happened when I was on a walk with my sister, we had paused to sit for a while when…

The One with the Allotment

In the summer, my brother-in-law made me cry. Thankfully, they were happy tears. During the first lockdown, both the boy and I had found it hard not having a garden. Whilst we made the most of local walks – and discovered some new green spaces – I had a deep longing to have somewhere to…

Moon Love

May we never stop looking to the moon in marvel and appreciation. I find myself catching my breath when I see her at the moment, a little spark of joy, bright in the sky. Always there, always here. The supermoon, Pink Moon, April 7th 2020. Throughout this month I – along with many others –…
