Bumper strawberry picking session today with the cousins on their flying visit. (Of course we had the obligatory meltdown there too, something about a fight over a booby shaped strawberry. I didn’t catch it all, I was too busy ugly laughing). Such a treat: seeing cousins AND strawberries. We see my scrummy little nieces rarely so it’s really treasured time. Every visit I’m more grateful for them and sad to see them disappear for another 6-12 months. A bit like home grown summer strawberries really, except they don’t like a bed of straw and they’re less prone to slug damage. They are both a treasured seasonal appearance. Fleeting but well worth all the work.

I am, primarily a Christian. I am also the mum of our wonderfully creative and dynamic (highly functioning) but beautifully autistic school aged boy Levi and our crazy extroverted people person toddler Elsie. I'm a keen advocate about truly honest community parenting. I'm truly passionate about Horticultural Therapy, hoping to see it prescribed by the NHS increasingly in the coming years. I spend my spare time (what spare time?) doing voluntary School Gardening at my sons mainstream school down the road. I'm completing my training this year as a Lead Forest School Practitioner with FSE. I'm the wife to a busy active shift worker, Andy. I do a bit of craft (not as well as I'd like) including some crochet which people have started paying me for (much to my surprise)! I'm keen to share conversations with you all on all of these things, and more. Join me on the journey as I dare greatly.
