This is a re-write of an old post about this incredible gut friendly drink. I've had so many enquiries about kombucha making since Lockdown, so it's an ideal time for a re-vamp! Yes, it's all about gut health and digestion. You all know I'm into gut health by including raw fermented foods into my diet. Sauerkraut is lovely, but not…

I had got myself into a flat spin and then I realised there was just too much noise! Right at the beginning of Lockdown I really panicked. I was drawn into the spiralling frenzy of 'You MUST diversify, you MUST change the way you run your business, and you MUST put everything ON LINE!!' Right now. Do it NOW. Hurry…

I am complete. I don’t have anything missing, I just needed a make-over. And I don’t mean I needed my hair done or new nails. More like a re-boot make over, like a car having a service. I just needed the time. Time that I would never ever have taken off if it hadn’t been for Covid19. An enforced sabbatical,…

We are on the fourth week of Lock Down and I've been going through a range of different emotions this month - one being guilt. I've been feeling guilty that I have a garden while other people are living in high rise flats in cities. In normal circumstances I would feel happy that I have a garden, but when I…

I woke up this morning in a bit of a flat spin! Should I go and shop…

Australia is on fire. The world is on fire. Unless you have been living on a different planet over the last few days, you will know about the crisis on the other side of the world. This is something that I feel very strongly about. So many people think that because this is happening on the opposite side of the…

This is a project that has been bubbling under for a few weeks. I've held off launching it fully until after the Open Studio here at Wayside House on 7th December, but I've already had a lot of interest so I think I will explain the reasoning behind it. Some of you will know me from my work with clients,…

From an early age - well about 12 - I knew what I wanted to do. I wanted to be a beauty therapist. Not a beautician, that's different. I wanted this so badly, but teachers told me that I should go into catering because I was very good at cookery. There weren't courses in beauty therapy in every college, and…
