Sometimes I write an article for a magazine that really leaves me with a warm glow inside... Plants Are Magic is one such magazine.
Filled with inspiration for greater connection to the earth, you will find articles from artisans the world over so I was thrilled when Editor, Rebecca Desnos, asked me to write about the story behind my handcrafted family business Little Loquat.
My article 'Beauty in Nature' appeared in an issue focused on local and you can read it by clicking the image above.
My latest article for JUNO Magazine ~ I am Consciously Unplugged and I am Conscious ~ is all about my need to switch off from technology and the busyness of life and reconnect; with nature, my family, myself... and how I achieve this on the waterways of England.
It is now available to read right here.
My most recent article for Canal Boating Times ~ My Waterways ~ is now available to read right here.
This month’s Bird Watching Magazine (October 2016) includes a little article from me about my experiences bird-watching from my narrowboat. It was written a while back after a trip from the Grand Union up to the Shropshire Union… reading it now takes me back to that glorious spring/summer on the water.
Available in WH Smith and various other newsagents, I’ll also post a copy to read here, sometime in October.
I recently wrote an article for the lovely JUNO magazine and it appears in this months issue ~ September 2016.
It’s all about my trip from the North to South of England by narrowboat and how it gave me a much-needed break from the busyness that life can be, and particularly from technology and that feeling of being ‘always on’.
It’s about switching off and reconnecting with the people around us and nature.
You can pick copies up at WH Smith, independent shops and also direct from their website and you will be able to read the article on my website in December.
JUNO is a natural parenting magazine and always makes for an interesting, thought-provoking and inspiring read.
My latest article was written for Canal Boating Times and is all about raising children on narrowboats.
I have spent many years living on narrowboats (on and off) and love every minute of it. In particular I actively chose such a lifestyle for my young daughter and feel she has benefited greatly from living on the canal and I can't recommend narrowboat life enough for other families looking for a different way.
I hope you enjoy!
Back in the Spring of 2013 I headed off for a month-long adventure with my then 7-year-old daughter and 74-year-old Dad. We took a plane from the UK to Malaga and then worked our way along the South coast of Spain, into rural Extremadura, across to Lisbon and then into the mountains of Central Portugal... all by bus.
It was a wonderful trip, not just for the things we saw, but mostly for the time we spent together.
This article, written for the June issue of JUNO Magazine, tells the story.
I hope some of you will enjoy!
