I think we all have a secret something we wish would or could happen. Mine would be a shack by the sea. But I’ve found myself recently dreaming of mountains, snow and vistas of unending wilderness. In my mind I’m seeing this as a conscious unconscious dream, a mixing of lockdown, the same four walls on repeat combined with winter, an acceptance of hibernation and the colder season of winter.

If pictures are not enough, there are two Youtube channels I’ve discovered (I’m sure there are plenty more) that open the door to another world, if only for a little while…

This is Hannah Lee Dugan, living in her cabin. If she’s not in her cabin, she lives in her converted van.

This is Tova and her family, living off grid in the Forrests of Jamtland, Sweden.

Enjoy!

Call it the call of lockdown fever, the curse of cabin fever, but after a few weeks of containment – and despite this lockdown being different – my eyes start longing for far horizons and a glimpse of the sea. I saw this house in Architectural Digest and physically felt the pull.

Maybe it’s time to get the Christmas lights out early…

Summer holidays: Pine cones, roses, lazy days, lemon sherberts, tottering piles of books, picnics, Victoria sponge cake, tartan rugs, muddy wellingtons, ┬ádamp anoraks, salads, less but more, pots of tea, lashings of ginger beer, board games, walking, running, caring, but not caring, watching, listening, breathing. All summed up in this tiny cottage in Scotland that says come to me with it’s open arms of nostalgia and the warm embrace of simpler times.

This is the joy of summer.

And so it happens..

What did you have for Brexit today? I would like to be a million miles away, living the simple life on a beach, being independent, fulfilled and carving out my own little bit of happiness far away from contagious groupthink.

But that’s me.

Sadly I only have the urban equivalent.

Free to Roam..

The wander-lust is strong today.  Despite spotting my first snowdrops on the way to school drop-off this morning, spring and summer still seem a long way off and the routine feels monotonous.

I just want to pack our bags and head off in a vintage jaguar with crinkled beige leather seats.

I don’t care if it’s a trip to the crisp, cold mountains.

But truth be told, I’d prefer somewhere with colour and sun.

Somewhere where life is simple.

It’s probably to much builders dust and not enough vitamin D..
