It’s Kentwell

Time with Joan. Time with crafts and friends and a campsite so quiet you can feel the silence like a warm soft cloak, and gather it to you to calm a modern mind. Time with fires and candles and communal meals and shared wine, and games of an evening and shared memories. Time past. My […]

(early) Saturday snippets September 23rd 2017

{heading} for bed very soon, as Kentwell calls. Our last event of the tudor year, and it’s just me and Small attending. Which will be a little odd tbh, but also quite nice to spend a bit of time with just one child. We’ve four days, and have borrowed a caravan so at least I’m […]

How to recover a day 

Eat Cadbury flake ice-cream and watch a film.  We went with Sleepless in Seattle. (affiliate link) It was good. (Yes, I’d seen it before. Big hadn’t. I had been remiss.) You can substitute something else if you really have to, although I feel the chocolate is important 🙂

Sunday morning coming down

(From a run. A 25 minute run at that. )

Saturday snippets 16th September 2017

{reading} the Loneliest Girl in the universe (affiliate) Which is so good! Full review in a few days when I’ve finished reading it. (The reviews on Amazon talk about a twist.

Post comtains affiliate links As part of the Blogtember challenge, today Katie, Hannah and I are talking movies. The suggestion was top 5 Disney titles, but I honestly couldn’t think of 5 films that I knew were Disney and I loved, so I’ve just gone for a generic top 5. Until the middle of last […]

Prisoner of Ice and Snow by Ruth Lauren

When 13-year-old Valor is sent to jail, she couldn’t be happier. Demidova’s prison for criminal children is exactly where she wants to be. Valor’s twin sister, Sasha, is serving a life sentence for stealing from the royal family, and Valor is going to help her escape…from the inside. Never mind that no one has escaped […]

Deschooling – a continual process

I can parrot off the law regarding education – something like a parent of a child of school age shall cause the child to receive a full time education, suitable to age, ability and aptitude. I can go further and say that a suitable education is one that fits a child for a life in […]

Slow Sunday

I woke up this morning stiff and full of pain. I should have done week 6 day 3 of couch to 5 k – there was no way that was happening. Instead it took me nearly two hours to stagger about hanging out two loads of washing with frequent rests, and by the time I’d […]
