Wilderness in London ~ Country Kids

I do love discovering new to me places and a recent stay at the in laws didn’t disappoint.

Considering I lived with them for a short while and have visited often I was beyond delighted to discover a lovely little wilderness park just across the road from them, perfect for the twins to have a run about and see a bit of nature.

One thing I can’t stand about London now it just how busy and loud it is, I’ve been spoilt by the coastal charms. Yet this park, right in the middle of a busy metropolitan city was perfectly peaceful and just…ahhh lovely, a great reminder that you don’t have to get out of the city to get back to nature.

Spring in Bloom–How Does Your Garden Grow

I think Charles Dickens sums up the past few days well

“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade”

Perspective

You’d be forgiven for thinking the most newsworthy events this week are some bloke leaving a band and some older dude getting sacked from a job he loved for no justifiable reason.

You wouldn’t think there is a General Election taking place in just over a month, nor that an aeroplane has crashed killing all 150 passengers.

You wouldn’t think there were countries at war: Yemen, Syria, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Cameroon, Niger, Chad, Ukraine, Burma…

In Kabul a suicide bomber has killed 6 people.

37 people died when 3 buses crashed in northern Peru.

It’s truly disgusting and a mark of just how disassociated we’ve become with real issues that leading news stories of the day are a boy band and an angry man who punched a work colleague.

It’s a sad day indeed when comments like “…the entire country is mourning” and “…gone forever. This is a sad day” refer to a TV show about cars rather than the senseless deaths of men, women and children.

The media, and many many people out there should be ashamed of themselves this week.

Making Time

As I was strolling along with Ahren to yet another set of appointments at the hospital for his hearing check ups I realised something; I only ever get one on one time with either of my children when they are ill or in hospital.

How Does Your Garden Grow

I may have found one of my most favourite gardens ever.

This past Mama Day I helped clear a garden for an elderly couple, it was hard work but it felt good to do something for someone else, and having a nosey around someone else's garden was kinda fun too!

Their garden is on a pretty steep incline, kinda wild and just…gosh darn pretty in a wild sorta way.
