It’s interesting how the word ‘social’ can be used in both fun and absolute opposite contexts. Continue reading “Summer Social”
We’ve just come back from a lovely wedding in Swansea. Good weather, great people, and lots of love.
This time last year we had quite a different adventure. Continue reading “San Salvador Al Revés”
Life has become very chicken-orientated. Continue reading “Hens and garden”
It’s May, it’s hot, and we’re going to Portugal next week to meet my Mum. It’s already been a year since her last visit. Commitments and responsibilities increase with chickens and seedlings, but without a correlating decrease in time away from home. Last month we spent three days in Madrid, joining the start of the Extinction Rebellion protests on April 15th. Nik knew more about … Continue reading Following the Moon

Last year we were swiftly escaping a rather dramatic workaway in an abandoned village in the middle of nowhere, and were left in limbo as we had little money and nowhere to go. Continue reading “Olive Picking in Las Alpujarras”
It’s that time again, where I have an itch to write and a lack of suitable space to scratch it. Not really, though. It’s so easy to fall down the perfectionism road and waste hours trying to come up with a new blog name, something that encompasses everything whilst being relevant and not too specific at the same time. Nevermind. Peace and Pollen will do … Continue reading Vidanueva
