This is our pre-Christmas challenge… get out into the woods… in the freezing cold… and rustle up some dead twigs… for our Christmas tree… Rule No. 1. it must not be cut from a living tree… Rule No. 2. easy to carry… Rule No. 3. will fit in the boot…

and the bonus is a good long walk through some amazing woodland… and this year managed a couple of twigs of holy… there are numerous bushes of varying sizes scattered throughout these woods…  Ho Ho Ho!

Born and raised in Perth, Western Australia to Polish parents, my upbringing was totally influenced by strong family values, Polish culture and customs based on Roman Catholic calendar, as well as the folkloric aspect of dressing up in regional dress and performing in Polish Folk Dancing, as well as the consumption of many home cooked Polish meals. Today, I live with my English husband in the UK, and I am a mother of two (all grown now) and grandma to one (granddaughter 5yrs). I love to travel, walk, take photos, blog, cook and spend time with my family in Australia (when I get the chance). I have a huge interest in natural medicine, which lead me to study at university in my 40's. I love exploring what this life is about, which has included reading motivational, spiritual and self-empowerment books and attending self-empowerment courses.
