Family

Thank you to my brother Oli for all your website help!

This website is dedicated to and in memory of my Mum Lyn, Mal my second Mum, my dear friend Lesley from Cobleland Campsite in Scotland and of course Daisy Dogsmucker.  My Mum for her love of life and free gypsy spirit, to Mal for her fun loving and caring character, to Lesley for her kindness and passion for protecting the natural world, encouraging all she met to see and believe in the magick within us, Daisy for just being a pain in the arse on her tireless quest to show me the beauty and joy in the now moment!  All loved to experience the adventure and healing beauty of nature. Thank you for all you are!
