So where does all this energy come from? Well, it’s in the genes!
My Mum and Dad have always been great ‘doers’ and it seems even more so now in retirement.
With Father’s Day fast approaching, I’d like to share my Dad’s energy with you.
You’ve heard about the ‘man who bought a zoo’, well here’s a man who bought a wood! Dad spends all his time here, he’s cleared land to make a beautiful meadow, established a colony of bees with over 10 hives, bought my Mum a shepherd’s hut, which they can often be found in drinking a bottle of wine, or in this case a cup of tea! He’s planted new trees, encouraged wild life havens for birds, bats and owls by introducing nesting boxes, cleared streams and ponds and planted an orchard full of lovely old variety apple trees!

I think that we can all agree that’s Dad’s are special people, so I asked my Dad for his special recommendations…. ”Which is your favourite product from my range of hand printed textiles and accessories”, I asked. “I love the bone china mugs”, he said…..”being a Cornish man these mugs are just the job – big enough to dip a biscuit in! I like the bread bags too, although it’s Mum that does the baking. It’s lovely to have it on the table with a fresh loaf and a hunk of cheese – proper job”!
So in line with my Dad’s recommendations, why not take a look for yourself, you can find our mugs here, and if your Dad is one of the many who love to bake, then check out the bread bags…..better than a pair of socks anyday!
