3 MONTHS



Snippet from home including one of my fave works by Lauren Merrick. This is the original but it's also available in a print.


So it’s been 3 months now since we’ve had access to the internet at home. 3 months of book reading, red wine induced conversation and after dark swims in the pool.*

A 3 month detox with no hope of changing soon.

We can’t actually get internet out here at our new place. We’re in the sticks - what we make up for in land, we loose to common convenience. But we’re okay with it…. we really are **

When we were first looking at this house, we suspected it might have slow internet speeds, perhaps even problems with mobile phone reception, but we were wrong- this little slice of paradise has A LOT of good things - palm tree’s, superb fairywrens breasted blue, big sky vistas and wildlife for days, but it ain’t got no connectivity.

No net-flix in the evenings, no in-bed pre-coffee instagram scrolling, no spotify dancing whilst dinner is cooking, no obsessive facebook stalking, no instagram, no blessed pinterest pinning and no instagram. Wait, did I say instagram? But you feel me, right? Actually no instagram... at all. At home. ever. like ever.

Sometimes I feel all twitchy and restless. You know, like something is missing ... but it turns out that being disconnected has been the best thing for our strung out family of five (read: strung out Emily).

I’m not saying we’ve all turned into totally chilled out turn taking, quiet talking people. We haven’t - and God willing, we never will. You’ve still gotta be willing to raise your voice to have your say and put your foot down when you mean it, but there’s drastically more spare time floating around.

We’ve replaced Net-Flix-Athons with family story times***, Afternoon TV sessions with bike riding and who knows, there might even be the odd board game in our future. Now I’m not making any promises but somehow, somewhere we’ve managed to obtain a certain family friendly game of Charades. Sounds fun, right??



I'll keep you posted.

Talk soon

Em xx



*read all romantic elements of post with your most discerning mind. I have no net flix. NO NET FLIX, PEOPLE!!!!!!! and NO INSTARGRAM!!!!!! Go on, throw a 4 letter word to the universe.

**I’m not still talking myself into it, I promise. chum. 


*** go on laugh!! ahahah Swiss Family Robinson, Every-Lego-Book-Ever, Molly and Pim, Gwendolyn….

  2. Having constant connectivity to the internet feels like a blessing and a curse sometimes! When I visit a family holiday home in Devon, I feel the same way as this. No internet means we end up playing board games, chatting or turning to books to fill the free time. I love it and always feel refreshed afterwards. I should start bringing some of this into my own home! :-)

WE started living – in..

During our discussion I would always say I did .. This February he called it off and since then I have been a mess.. I gave it a lot of thought and realised my mistakes and why I was doing it..
