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.

Windy, wet days need rainbows

It is wet and windy,

everyone has colds and the car is in the shop.

So we mixed up rainbow bubbles, 

to cheer a grumpy hatchling.

Once we had gotten the food colouring out,

it seemed a good idea to bake cake,

and make more play dough,

and try out making rainbow spaghetti.

Now, half the hatchlings are busy playing play dough while the other half are making crafts with the spaghetti.

Through the sound of the music playing we have playing, I hear laughing and happy chatter. Which is exactly the change we needed from this mornings congested grumping and back ground whinge.

Wishing you a happy day with rainbows, regardless of how hard the rain comes down.

Bunny had a secret

We had suspicions, but we'd suspected before, and it came to nothing.

So I didn't want to pressure her; hence, we left her be.

Happily, we found she'd been keeping six adorable secrets.

Now, I just have to convince the hatchlings we don't need to keep them all!

Quiet days

There is a time for all things.

Someone wise once said.

And these days, have been, in a hairy and slightly topsy turvy way,

quiet days.

Days, where we make 15 phone calls to unravel the days plans, because the winds roar with indignation and the sea stands upright, ready to high five anyone gutsy enough to ask it to settle down in the face.

There have been storms all over the country, which have undoubtedly changed many lives. I can only hope that they are able to find peace at the end of this season.

For us, plans foiled, have meant more afternoon naps. 

Less running from one place to the next.

Lots more time to spend together,

 indulging our interests.

This winter seems determined to go out with a bang.

Yet, spring is just around the corner, crouched down, poised to released its boundless energy, and I wait with anticipation for what it will bring.

Until then, I will treasure these quiet days.

It may, after all, be another year before we have another.

Home education is...

And it is not 

like this.

It is 

like this.

But it isn't anything like


It is a lot more

of this.
