my little van-life dream

For some time now I’ve been working towards quitting my day job so I can fulfil my creative passion to write.make.create

I know this may seem indulgent, but I do think that we humans are created for a specific purpose and while that may, at times, ebb and flow into different streams, generally those streams all connect to a common theme or purpose.

Do you ever have those moments when you find yourself saying,


Deep down there’s something ticking inside of me, inside us, that needs to find space to unpack. I can’t begin to tell you how good I feel when I’m writing a blog, writing my memoir, writing a song, creating journals or even making those little crocheted cloths. Seriously, sometimes I find myself spontaneously clapping or doing a little happy dance – It’s just that good.

I’m a maker, a writer and yes, I know, a vivid dreamer and I do like who I’m becoming.

I’m not getting any younger and I’d like to make the most of my time earth-side. I’d like to inspire others to live well, to follow what’s in their heart and to find purpose and meaning in all that they do, whether it be big or small.

My plan is in the cooker.

I’ve been slowly building towards it for some time now.

It may just involve a little travelling van.

Sometime, in the future, I’ll be taking my little Cottage Dream Shop on the road and my creative space, Write Make Create, might be coming along too.

I hope do hope I can pull this off!

I hope to park up wherever I find myself, be it a market, a camp by the roadside or a specific event. I may even hold a little gathering here and there, in a little country town somewhere near you. Let me know if you’d like to host one.

I want to be honest and kind and true and do my best to sprinkle joy and inspiration wherever I go, encouraging you to follow your heart and delve deeper into purpose and inspire you to unpack your dreams.

I’d love for you to join me on the journey.

Success! You're on the list.
