About us

We are a hard working, family of eight. Swimming in the sea when we aren't busy on our small holding. Daddy dragon has to work away a lot, so this blog is to let him keep up with our adventures at home.

Weeks like these

That run, run, run.
Everyday feels like a spinning top, going round faster and faster.

And then I look up at the views that surround me and it all stops spinning.

We are so blessed.

Every hatchling likes a sling

We've had a few slings over the years - starting with a bijorn with hatchling no1 to a ring sling, to a moby wrap, then a connecta, and lenny lamb woven. 

I have borrowed a wompat from our local sling library in search for a sturdy toddler buckle option.

Hatchling no4 certainly approved.

(And before any feels the need to say, yeah I know the wrap is wat too loose, but you can pnly critique a twelve year old hatchling so much, and it was supervised.)

UFO cloud

It is funny what brings a community together. Over the course of an hour dozens of photos of this strange cloud were shared as hundreds gathered to discuss the sky above us.

Strawberry cream cake

It is cake week on GGBO.

So this is our cake contribution. Definately, wouldn't impress Mary Berry, but it was delicious.


You can smell it in the air, that change is just around the corner.

Our day light diminishes, as we speed towards the eqinox.

As such, we are taking every opportunity to play outside before the wind makes it such a lot harder.

First week back to school/ home education

It went well. 

Busy, as it should be with new schedules, activities,

And a hatchling or two missing from our home based activities.

Though we miss them, they are chasing their own adventures in the big world, and we are excited for them.

Back in our little bubble we focused heavily on art, litterature and spelling.

It wasn't without math, history or latin.

The hatchlings are actually incredibly eager to pursue si many subjects and goals, the main difficulty is fitting it all in.

It was a gentle and productive week, which I hope will be the exact start to go on that we need.
