Sunshine and Caravans

Waking up this morning to the holiday weekend, we are blessed again to be having some fine weather. What a difference it makes to wake up to beautful blue skies, bird song and a warmth inthe air.

I dont normally put the radio on unless for music,  however  yesterday I did. I heard a news report of convoys of caravans trying to head down west,  it defies logic I’m afraid as to why people would even attemp such a journey under present circumstances I simply dont understand!

The ” To Do” List

Changing the subject swiftly, this week seems to have flown by given our isolation and temporary clipping of wings and I am feeling very lucky to have all this extra time to do the things  I have been meaning to do for ages!

I have made a “list of things to do “ whilst on my three-month home retreat anb as of today I am on item number one still. However,  I don’t mind at all, I am lucky to be safe and well. Things will pick up again and I  have plenty of time to work through the list!

A Symphony of Sound and an Aviary of Bowls

I am an early riser and recently the dawn chorus seems to have become a veritable symphony of sounds. Combined with the sound of the sea, it  has lulled me into my own early morning sound bath!

On the theme of birds, I decided to open a box this morning which as of yet we haven’t peeked into. Very synchronistically after my bird song experience this morning, I came across an aviary of beautiful bird bowls made by the very talented Jo Bosley.

The bowls, which come in various sizes and a variety designs from blackbird to blue tit, are made with a gritty stoneware clay called crank. They have a uniqueness about them which gives you a cosy “stoneware cuddle” as you look at them! You can find out more about Jo on our website.


The Tradewinds team  hope that you all have a fabulous weekend, get creative and enjoy each other’s company, even if it is a virtual experience.
