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.

A little piece of heaven

My book is now done and I have a little bit of time to take a deep breath, before jumping into another project.

There was never going to be a better time,

To go off and explore.

A few wrong turns,

but at last we found

exactly what we had been hoping to find.

A new woodland!

Oh, how we had missed the hundred acre wood.

Now, we have a new place to build memories

of fairy games, 

pooh sticks,


hide and seek.

This beautiful little piece of heaven.

The weather today was exquisite.

The sun shone

with only a whisper of wind,

and so we stayed and played

for hours on end.

Not a productive day in a working sense.

Just a hard earned day of enjoyment.

I think we shall have to venture back soon.

And for any one in my area, who hasn't found this place

take a left at the crossroads to the stones of Stenness, instead of a right,

and head for the trees.

Happy Friday!

A cute day

Today, we have been blessed with a day abundant in cute.

Campbell ducklings are so much smaller than our Aylesburys were.

The hatchlings threw the ducklings a birthday party. 

All the animals had to come dressed in their best.

(Puss is still refusing to come out from under the bed in his frilly knickers.)

Welcome to the world ducklings!

What we are listening to today.

I have like days until my fourth book is due back at the publishers...


And did I mention, all that accident stuff, took like a 30%, coughs 50%, bite out of the writing time I needed.

This week, I need to be unbeatable, because I am running beside a speeding train that is my deadline.

 I am looking forward to being done.

So, I can kick back and just watch our children run.

Wishing everyone a very productive week.
