Since I was around 16 years old it has always been my dream to own some sort of smallholding, nothing too large just a handful of animals and a big space for vegetables. I would be quite happy with a small area of water for fishing and of course an outbuilding converted into a daytime cafe and evening restaurant which serves food that I’ve grown myself.
I would love to have the space to make my own cheese, beer and wine and a few bee hives would come in handy for honey. My grandfather used to keep ducks and chickens so I already have an understanding of what is required for the upkeep of these animals. I have a huge fear of horses but I could be persuaded to have a couple of small ponys.
My favourite bedtime reading has to be books about vegetable growing, I’m just polishing up my knowledge for the day that I see an affordable piece of land!
Living in a mixed faith household it’s difficult to keep up with Halakha (Jewish traditions). I eat Kosher when I can, I give to charity and I celebrate Jewish Holidays when I can.
As Cliché as it sounds, my best friend is my partner David. We have been together for over 10 years now and he is the first person I go to if I need someone to talk to, have a problem or just need to know if my bum looks big in something!
It’s not very often that we have our picture taken together as usually it’s one of us behind the camera so these pictures are fairly old!
I’ve gone off topic for todays #BEDM, I don’t actually have a walk to work to describe as the little bits of work that I do freelance are done from home, I’m also a full time student but on Maternity leave for a year so can’t document my journey there either. What I have decided to share with you instead are my favourite places to visit where I live.
When I was training for my degree in Complementary Therapy I hated being a client for massages and reflexology, I loved giving the treatments but really disliked receiving them, I always wanted to have my turn as therapist first in the hope that the lesson would end before I had received the full treatment as a client. I enjoy certain treatments like hot stone massage and Indian head massage but my body always reacts to a full body massage or reflexology, this is a good thing as it shows the treatment is working but I really hate how I feel afterwards as the toxins are leaving my body.
