Hello…

This is a sacred space. This is where I share my experiences of being a woman in the world and maybe bring some light or share some lessons I’ve learned. This space has morphed and evolved A LOT over the last decade. If you scroll back to older blog posts, you’ll find stories of some of the experiences that led me here. You’ll read about joy, grief, shame, struggle,  acceptance, truth…my experience of being human.

This year, I’m exploring my relationship with the land, the sacred gift  of writing and my respect and fascination with the wisdom of the Celts. Dip in at your leisure, you never know what you’ll find.

A few years ago I would have said I didn’t choose this life, but now, I feel it’s exactly what I chose. This is precisely where I’m supposed to be. I hope some of what I write here helps you…to feel less alone perhaps. Or to groan in recognition of a sister doing her best with what she got. Or maybe to understand a life very different to yours. You’re all welcome here…x

I’ve been neglectful

It's over 8 months since I wrote anything here. I could claim buying a new house with my husband (yippee) distracted me. It did. I was verra distracted. Is that the reason though? I feel kind of ashamed. Where does the shame come from? Probably a learning from my...
