About

A blog about smallholding and a 24 year old mad cat woman attempting to live a little greener and more environmentally friendly. Just a little blog here about all the trials, attempts, successes and failures of trying to live a little greener regardless of where we are living-including having livestock, gardening, herb growing, wood-work, eco-friendly ideas, nature watching and some cooking using home-grown products. Additionally, I take a particular interest in special diets-such as vegetarian new exciting dishes and gluten free options. I also try to keep up with the latest news on free range, organic and healthier ways of living.

I write for Smallholding magazines, and would love to work for the Countryfile team or to be a food/drink/countryside issues writer or presenter : ) I have a passion for sharing news and stories with others and making people more aware of issues. It would be great to hear any news from other people, discuss or share ideas to help smallhold even in the smallest/most random locations.

  1. HI thank you for popping by the other day – have meant to leave a comment on your blog as I think it is great but am not very good at the Blog v Painting balance at the moment. I really enjoy the mixture of short Posts with your lovely photos. So interesting to read about an ex-pat settling into a new country. Looking forward to hearing your news. cheers KnitNell
