I did my best to blog daily during 30 Days Wild. I missed a few days and I’m now finishing up with the multi-day post. To be honest I’m still pretty pleased with how well I’ve done. Given the health challenges I face during heat waves, a house move and a total lack of Wi-Fi…Continue reading The End of #30DaysWild
At this point I was still very much in recovery mode. Busy days (like those on the 23rd & 24th) usually leave me knackered for a good few days. I did manage to get out and check my trail camera. After sifting through literally hours of footage (which in it’s self is awesome) I have…Continue reading Day 26 of #30DaysWild – Trail Cam Highlights Reel
Following the theme of the last few weeks I am running late. Day 25 was largely spent recovering from the previous two days of busy volunteering. While pottering around the garden, reading and painting furniture in a half-hearted way, I spent a fair while watching the birds on the feeding station. It’s lovely to see…Continue reading Day 25 of #30DaysWild – Starlings on camera.
I’m combining two days because I didn’t do much wild on either of them. I thought I’d do a quick post explaining why. If you follow my social media you’ll know I’ve been rather busy. Friday the 23rd, I spent the day in Stowmarket at the Suffolk Coalition of Disabled People‘s AGM. I gave a…Continue reading Days 23 & 24 of #30DaysWild
Today the muggy heat has really finished me off. I’m tachycardic, woozy and my stomach is angrier than normal thanks to my autonomic issues. I’d quite like to curl up in a ball in front of an open fridge and stay there for the whole day. I do struggle with heat intolerance but what really…Continue reading Day 22 of #30DaysWild – PoTS (not the plant kind) & Squabbling Starlings.
So I’m back to blogging a day or two behind. Our original WiFi activation date has been put back by a week and a half. I’m a little annoyed especially given that I work from home.. on the computer. I’d moved my office over to the new address expecting internet but alas it’s not happened.…Continue reading Day 21 of #30DaysWild – Summer Solstice
Wow I’m behind with this. Ok so wednesday was more house sorting. I spent the day pottering around the house organising things and painting furniture. I also removed some of the spiders that seem to think the house belongs to them! As we spend more time in the garden and the bird feeders become more…Continue reading Day 14 of #30DaysWild – Garden Birds
Once again a day behind but here goes. I’m going to start with a summary of our new home and garden. We’re based on the Ravenswood estate in the south-east of Ipswich. The house is a large two bedroom, mid-terrace with well-proportioned but irregular shaped rooms. The house is the middle bit of a terrace…Continue reading Day 13 of #30DaysWild – Intro to the new home.
A day late but no less exciting. Yesterday (12th) we picked up the keys to our new home. Addz and I have been living with my parents but it’s time to fledge the nest. It was a busy day, we started by packing up the first lot of our kitchen stuff. Being able to make…Continue reading Day 12 of #30DaysWild – House Move, Ants & a Bee.
In preparation for the house move Addz (my partner) and I spent the day shopping. Both online and in the real world. We’ve been as thrifty as possible but I’ve splashed out a little on Chalk Finish Paint. I’ve dreamed of shabby chic furniture projects for years and the time has nearly arrived. Painting and…Continue reading Day 10 of #30DaysWild – Urban Foxes
