So often when listening to the news, there are too many sad, bad, horrible stories going on in the world. Why can't we just BE NICE to one another? WHY is there always conflict and suffering.......I go through feeling angry that as people and human beings, we don't look after each other like we should, to sadness......are my children really going to grow up in such a harsh place, a place we have all contributed to????
Don't worry, I'm not on a quest, I'm not on a soapbox professing my thoughts and ideals......it's just some times....in all the rotten shallow media/entertainment nonsense ( NO I don't care what colour Cheryl Cole has died her hair, or who is dating who where and when ) a little gem of a story is discovered.
I have HUGE hobbit house envy. I'm sure you've all heard by now, about the hobbit house in Wales.
It is quite an amazing creation, a little piece of magic and perfect fairytale living......
Simon Dale has made this fantastic home, using sustainable sources, nature, traditional crafts, all low impact and all beautiful in their own way...It gets you thinking doesn't it?
From a girly, perhaps materialistic point of view, I just love this, the look, the atmosphere, just IT. Think of all those lovely childhood memories his children will have.........I bet that staircase creaks, and I bet Bilbo Baggins goes round for tea too.
So go and be inspired, have a look at the website perhaps we could all get together, make our own little hobbit house community, stitching and making, knitting and crocheting, keeping pigs, chickens, and sheep...letting our children run bare foot in the woods giggling and happy.
Sorry if this post is too boho for you.................she says, drinking her green tea..... cheerio folks xxx
