Hello everyone,

I've been having a look around for a week or so, I'm finally here!

My partner and I am learning to live a better life, trying to learn new skills and paying mind to our actions. I'm a park ranger in an urban park and DH is an artist.

We look longingly over the fence at our neighbours chickens! (not bad for an east end victorian terrace!)

I'm struggling a little with so much to do, it's hard to work out what to get on with first.

I'm looking forward to chatting with everyone!

Hi there Lyndsay, nice to see you have taken the plunge...



I'm sure thats one thing you have in common with nearly every one on here, struggling with so much to do...

Hi Lyndsay and welcome.

It is a big step but if a few years time you'll have come along way and you can look back and be pleased that you did start you path to a lighter living.
:bigclap:

Where to start. Simple! Winter approaching - insulation in the house and dig up the future veg patch!

Thank you for the kind welcome.

I'm investigating tree resins at the moment, making some incense. I was initially interested in using them, in the summer(!) to make insect repellents but I've found little to no information on this.

Welcome from another Londoner

Can certainly recommend door curtains. Ours would normally go up as soon as the clocks go back. (not this year - builders Rolling Eyes )
