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
The quarter points of the year (March, June, September and December) mark 4 natural points to take a step back and review your life and goals. Quarter point reviews are in everyday parlance in the corporate world- 12 weeks make very good accountability points, and a great project timeframe. But these quarter points also happen to align with the equinoxes and solstices too, and doing a review that takes inspiration both from the corporate world and from mother nature makes for a wonderfully meaningful and seasonal deep dive.Read More

I actually like the quiet of winter for dreaming and planning and always have...
Spring is, in many ways, a much MUCH better time to set some goals and intentions and make them happen!
Have you ever made a goal only to completely forget about it?!
Yeah. So have I.

For years my hopes and dreams brought me a lot go joy and filled reams of pages in my journal….but they stayed as just that. Hopes and dreams written in a journal.
It wasn't until Idid the following things that I began to actually start taking steps toward my goals. Pretty mega steps actually. (quitting my job, moving house and figuring out motherhood sort of steps 😱)Read More
March! A whole new season! What a hopeful, life-filled month this is. The ground is already teeming with new life, evidenced in the delicate cups of the crocuses shyly opening toward the sun, and the hanging heads of snowdrops bobbing in the wind. Daffodils are trumpeting and the bird song is intensifying by a few decibels each morning too. If you manage to catch the sun in a windless moment, it feels gently warm on your face, a sweet promise of what’s to come.Read More
