Rambling with TOG24

30th November 2017

Over this past year it has become more and more apparent just how important having a good old walk is for my mental and physical health. Having swapped my office job for an outdoor one it has made a huge different to how I feel on a daily basis and that is down to being out in the fresh air day in day out. Walking/rambling is something that we can all do each day in some form. Whether it’s choosing…

Autumnal Favourites

29th October 2017

Everyone loves Autumn. You only have to scroll through Instagram littered with cosy fireplace shots, orange hues of leaf shedding trees and copious amounts of pumpkins to know this. I, very unoriginally, also love Autumn. It has always been my favourite season (I liked it first before it was even cool….) CLEARLY I’m joking btw. This Autumn has really been special to me. Its because it marks a year (yesterday to the day in fact) that I started work as…

Our farm wedding

23rd October 2017

2nd September 2017 Getting ready The day of our wedding I woke up and couldn’t believe our luck with the weather. It honestly was the most beautiful day, just perfect. I woke up and padded downstairs to a hub of excitement in the kitchen (having 7 bridesmaids will do that!). The lovely Susie was doing a great job at keeping everyone calm whilst doing everyones make up and my parents, auntie and uncle pottered around too. It was so lovely being…

Why you need the Toggi ‘Luella’ wax jacket in your life…

12th September 2017

So there are just items of clothing, things that you buy and instantly know that you’re going to wear ALL the time. This jacket is one of those things (Click here for link). I flipping love it. The fit, the colour, the material, and the fact that it is WATERPROOF aaaaand warm. The lining is also gorgeous too. Whenever I wear this jacket, I always get compliments. I think its because its a different colour to most wax jackets on…

A classic yellow raincoat from Lazy Jacks

15th May 2017

Anyone who follows me on insta will know how much love I have for raincoats. There is something nostalgic about wearing a classic raincoat/mac that brings me back to being a small child. A bit like donning a pair of dungarees, or a little backpack! I was recently looking back at old childhood photos and it made me laugh how little my dress sense has changed in the past 30 years! Give me a stripey top, a bright raincoat and…

Things I miss about city life…

23rd April 2017

We’re 3/4 of the way through lambing at the moment, and I’m actually writing this post amidst the orphan pen, so I can keep an eye on them and get some blogging done…rule no.1 in farming – multitasking you see. Lambing is a whole other post so I’ll save the deets until then, but for now I just wanted to talk about some of the things I’m missing from life before farming. I’ve found the last few weeks particularly challenging…

Spotlight on Gray’s Country Gifts…

13th April 2017

In the last two weeks the oil seed rape outside our house has suddenly gone POP. It looks flipping amazing. I mean, my hayfever is awful, but who cares right…makes for a great photo background. I’ve had this Gray’s Alice bag for a couple of weeks now, and because of lambing and generally being a shepherdess hermit, I haven’t yet been able to take it off the farm! Hence the yellow background in the shot! I can however tell you,…

Woodland walks with Toggi…

26th March 2017

We managed to grab a break this weekend inbetween sheep moving/checking, cow feeding and other farm related activities! We have been wanting to explore the woodland near our farmhouse ever since we moved in last September, and it didn’t disappoint! Sun dappled and covered in  rhododendrons, it felt like we could have been in the middle of a Canadian forest. I took the opportunity to test drive my new Toggi Rundle boots and Taymouth tweed coat. It was sooo nice…

Weekend getaway in North Devon

20th February 2017

Andy and I decided that it was probably a good plan to get away from the farm for a weekend before lambing kicks in (in April time)! We wanted somewhere that we could easily drive to, that we could take Juno and had nice beaches/pubs/walks. DEVON was the winner. We found a really sweet little cottage on Airbnb (here) which was near to the North Devon coastline in a tiny village called Buckland Filleigh. After much faffing around on the…
