The simplest expression of this is that we are straightforward folk with no hidden agendas. We’re not perfect but we are comfortable in our own skin and we do like to get our kit off in the sun. And having experienced the joy of skinny-dipping we realise how bonkers it is to put clothes on to get wet! For us, being natural is also about working with nature, not against her. Wherever possible we harness nature’s energy and preserve the earth’s natural resources.
We are realists and we do what we can with the time, resources and budget that we have. We try and focus on the things we can change rather than wasting time on those we cannot. We are practical people in the sense of getting our hands dirty too! We love the satisfaction that comes from clearing our land, restoring terraces, making things and growing things.
We ditched our high-stress lives in the UK so we could kick the habit of only living for the weekends and holidays. We enjoy what we do and have lots of fun and giggles along the way. We try not to take ourselves too seriously and remember that a smile is a very simple thing that can make a huge difference.
Since it’s mainly my view of the world that you get to read, I thought I’d give a more personal insight about me…
What floats my boat…
friends, listeners, the colour green, open-mindedness, G&T, massage, a really good belly laugh, food, books, sunshine, singing my heart out, playing Bridge
selfishness, mozzies, insincerity, racists, cruelty to animals, grey drizzle, cigarette butts in the Bay, pointless time wasters
