Recovery and preparing for the glampers


I am continuing to recover from my hip operation, nearly 4 weeks post op. Am able to take short walks down the lane, a little further each day, enjoying the slowness, listening to the birds and looking at the hedgerow harvest. Have even been into the orchard to pick apples, yum, yum. Must get some sugar and make Crab apple jelly.

First supper party last night at friends certainly lifted my spirits.

I have been collecting more bits and bobs for the caravans, lovely melamine and 70’s pots and pans.  We discovered a wonderful place called  Vintage Trading Company in Exeter where we found some fantastic bits of furniture to paint with Annie Sloan for the cottage. So, it’s all paint brushes and wax here.

About Fiona Gordon

I am a mother and now a proud grandmother of two beautiful boys. I am married to Jon Lincoln-Gordon a wonderful landscape artist and teacher. I have worked as a mental health nurse for many years and understand the importance of nature and creativity to our mental health. I love living in our tranquil valley in Devon, I have a small flock of Jacob sheep and use their fleece to spin, dye, weave, knit and crochet. I grow a lot of my own dye stuffs and am never more happy than boiling up flowers heads and dying my own wool, well maybe when I have finished a project having created it from scratch. We decided to share our little bit of heaven by doing some Glamping, we have three old caravans we have restored so people can come and stay and top up on some peace and calm.
