Today I’ve been helping my Dad and Mum move into their partially built house today. No really, partially! These too are absolutely crazy, but also ambitious, hardworking, kind & generous hearted, creative folks. They are far from perfect but I’ve never known anyone so good at proper hard graft as the McClure clan. They’re about to move into a house which doesn’t have a front door, internal partitions, water, electricity, a bathroom or a kitchen (that’s just the start of it). And Dad leaves for Africa to lead teams of young people in serving the community all summer in 4 DAYS. As nuts as this seems it is pretty normal for my folks. Always stretching themselves, sometimes too far but often further than I can imagine is possible. I haven’t yet worked this out for myself. For now I’m just looking at this house my Dad and brother built with their bare hands in less than 6 months and thinking of how proud I am of all their hard work and that unbelievable determination.

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.
