There I said it!
It’s good to get these things out there, so that’s what i’m doing here.
Welcome to the mish-mash that’s my blog – part lifestyle, part travel, a little creating, trying to be kinder to ourselves, others and our planet, some laughs and a LOT of old literature.
So if you enjoy a bit of free-range wandering, don’t mind a few affiliate links (that’s one of the ways I pay my bills) and have a passing interest in the Brontes, Jane Austen, Dickens, Agatha Christie, Sherlock Holmes, France, Japan, the lake district, the Norwegian Fjords, the seaside, caring for elderly parents, music, foraging, gin, handbags, True Crime, hand made earrings, cups of tea, parenting, The Clash, food, knitting, slime-mold, embroidery, eco-friendly life, cats, dogs, papier mache, jam, running, Whitby Jet, cocktails, books, cheese, fashion, crafts – (glueing & sticking), nature, interesting articles, shoes, art, ideas, vintage jewellery, snoopy, parabolic geometary – yes really, films, well being, biscuits and much much more (and indeed, who wouldn’t?) then you’re in the right place…… and breathe.
As you can see, I really love lots of things and people (mostly), as I’m sure you do too, and that can feel really busy – but, I’m taking a leaf from Emily Bronte’s book.
She famously, absconded from the daily hum-drum of her domestic duties and life and escape to the moors behind Haworth Parsonage. She was, as one of the Brontes so beautifully put it, ‘gone to the heather’.
Hence the blog title – this is our moor and our escape, so come and join us!
As final note in today’s blog post, I wanted to share with you my favourite book, which is Jane Eyre, written by Charlotte Bronte. It is the perfect escape from the frenetic-ness (no, I’m not sure that’s a word either) of our modern lives. I do believe that everyone should have a set of the Bronte Sister’s works and if you don’t, then why not indulge yourself in a firm act of self-care: click on the link below and escape to the heather….
A lovely set books featuring of the fantastic works of Charlotte Bronte, Emily Bronte & Anne Bronte.
Thanks & have a really lovely day.
