History in the making.......

If you had asked me six years ago
whether we would still be posting little
stories about the 'squirrels' and their adventures....
I would have probably said 
Hmmmm No.

We are always humbled by the numbers 
of lovely people who pop on to the
web-site and see what we are up to.

We decided way back in the beginning
to show the beauty of our world, 
special places with history,
the happiness of every day things, and 
to have a little place to escape to
that was simple & pleasant.

So today the 'squirrels'
are at the 
'Chingford Stables'
one of the most beautiful parks in 

In the wind and rain
a perfect place to 
reflect on history. 

thank you for
following us for the last
six years.

best wishes 
Vanessa & Warren

The simple escape......


Means I get to us one of my 
favourite words to describe my mood.

The weather is making me feel

We find the best way to chase the blues away.....
is a little road trip to the beach.

On grey days 
the sea and the sand seem saturated 
in strong moody hues.....
The haunting smell of everything
touched by the rain fills your lungs with 

Its the Simple escapes
that re-energizes us.

'Squirrels' strolling along......

Walking through the park
 on the way to work in
the early morning can make your heart sing.

The Dunedin Botanical Gardens are a wash
with the most beautiful display of colour at the moment.

Perfect pockets of all kinds of pretty flowers.....
the wonderful scent of summer....
and the busy sounds of nature working.

Simple little Strolls
Simply fill you with happiness.
