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.

Value your dreams

Your time is your life. 
So when you surrender control of your calendar to other people, 
you put them in control of your destiny. 
Our globalised society has broken down the natural boundaries on how 
and when people can tell you what they think you should be doing.

My goal this week is to focus on reclaiming more of my family's time. We it is a loosing battle we keep fighting.

Risk more than more than other think is safe

Care more than other's think is wise

Dream more than others think is practical

Expect more than others think is possible

And only spend your time, money and love on what is genuinely valuable to you.

Time marches on

June has stormed in,

with a scroll full of projects.

There have been smiles


time to go out and explore.

We've grown

along the way.

The weather has not always stayed steady,

and many times we've been exhausted,

but overall,

life is


and the future

is bright.

There is a lot more work to be done.

My next book is finished though,

and for that,

I am glad.

Only a few more loads to complete,


we can start on new pursuits,

find a little downtime,

and through it all,

be thankful to be on this journey, with such wonderful company.
