After a 25 year career in science and health and safety at a higher education institute in London I decided to make a few changes.

So without much thought to the consequences I relocated to a tiny village in the Poitou Charente region of France to enjoy much slower and less stressful way of life reconnecting with my yoga practice and painting and generally being creative.

I’ve taken on quite big project of renovating an old french house, gite, barns and gardens. Join me on my journey as a builders apprentice as I slowly start to learn new skills; plumbing, re-pointing, and up cycling bargains I find at the brocantes over the summer.
And as if that wasn’t enough I joined Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic as a consultant selling their lovely organic products.

And so the adventure begins……..
