Hello, and welcome to the May Sunday Supplement! After a break last month (I was launching the Spring chapter of my e-course and something had to give!) my monthly newsletter is back with 10 wonderful things to make, do and celebrate this utterly wonderful month of May. Spring is entering her maturity as the trees fill up with leaves and the first flowering bulbs and flowers finish for the year, making way for the May and June flowering shrubs and trees. It’s a joy- an actual cheesy joy-to take a moment and just take it all in; the blossom and bluebells and bird song.Read More
Welcome, July! The beginning of the second half of the year; the perfect time to take a step back and check in on those goals you made at the start of the year. I have been looking over my January goals, and have a blog post ready to go up tomorrow with my process. It has been, as usual, revealing, hard at times and liberating at times too. How are your goals or your word for the year holding up?
July is, for many, the pinnacle of the summer. The weather is warm and dry, the school summer holidays start in just a few weeks and the best of the seasons fruit and flowers are abundant. This summer in particular has been the warmest we've had in years and I am drinking it up! I'm living in sandals, sunglasses and sundresses and we are busy planning some summer adventures too. Hurrah!Read More
March, by Emile Maguin for HannahBullivant.com
It is currently quite hard to believe that March is really here; the UK is recovering from a Baltic blast of ice and snow that is only just melting. Schools and work places closed for much of the week (we do not have the infrastructure to deal with it here) and it has been sobering to realise just how much we are at the mercy of Mother nature. We were all forced to slow down, something I needed. But temperatures are set to rise quite quickly over the next few weeks and suddenly March, The Spring Equinox (20th) and a new season is before us. A whole new season!
My oldest baby turns 6 in a few days and underneath the thawing ice and snow hopeful daffodils open. The bird song will get louder and louder every morning from now on, and the increasing light is very welcome too. Spring is a wonderfully energising month, ripe for creativity and growth. I AM HERE FOR THAT.
Here are 10 wonderful things to make, do, and celebrate in the month ahead!Read More
Welcome to the first proper newsletter since Auden was born! And also welcome to October, month of true Autumn, and my birthday month. Hips, haws and sloes are bountiful, horse chestnut cases litter the ground, and of course their shiny inhabitants; although not for long before small hands gather them up greedily. The trees are turning resplendent shades of red, orange and brown, and the ground is carpeted in gold. We shake out our woollens, light the candles and prepare for the many celebrations that this season holds.
Yes, Autumn. We like you.
My sweet babe is 7 months old and my big girlie recently started a new school so we have been busy navigating the channels of change. We are excited to welcome the new season in our home by our fire, and around our table. I started a new hashtag recently called #embracingtheseasonsathome so I could nosy at the ways others celebrate each season at home and it has some such wonderful images in the gallery already! So, without further ado, here are 10 of my most favourite things to make, do, and celebrate this month.
Hurray for October!Read More
Despite the entirely misplaced snow flurries many of us Brits have experienced this week, there is no doubting the ever strengthening Spring. The Horse Chestnut is a joy to watch at this time of year; it's small, curved green fingers grow at an almost visible rate; blooming into graceful full bodied hands.Read More
