On holidays in Patong, Thailand and for the first time in all my travels I feel like just another tourist. For a week we were booked into a hotel.

Once at the hotel we just had to be tourists and go site seeing. returning to our hotel at the end of the day to chill and relax.

So I put them in my pocket and took them home. Rather than letting them decompose slowly in a café garden bed. One of these little acorns will be given a new chance at life, just like its new companion and carer. Continue reading “Planting My Roots”

Follow your heart
Don’t settle for second best
So what’s in this stone?
