Hi!! I’m Wends and I live on the beautiful Isle of Man, a relatively small island in the middle of the Irish Sea.

It’s a peaceful place where everything seems to move at a slower pace.  And for most of the time, that’s just how I like it!!

My life right now:

Although I don’t have a job to go to, my days are usually busy and there’s always something to do.  I moved into an old Manx cottage seven years ago with my partner and we now share the cottage with our two Korat cats, Otto and Millie.

If the weather’s good, I love to get out walking and exploring.  There’s still so much of the island that I haven’t seen.  If the weather’s not so good, then I can always pick up on one of my other interests – cooking, crafting or painting.  But recently, I’ve developed a real passion for upcycling!!  To provide me with the perfect environment to enjoy this and some of my other interests there’s an exciting new project that’s just started in the Secret Garden ☺ Check out my Great Outdoors posts to see what’s happening.

I hope you enjoy your visit and that you’ll stick around!!
