Hello,
I've looked at this site many times and posted before but I realise I never formally introduced myself.
My name is Candy and I live in a London suburb with my hubby and 2 of our 3 kids (eldest is at uni). I always wanted to move out to the countryside and have a smallholding so 15 years ago I read every book I could find and kept telling people "next year" but it still hasn't happened yet!
We grow herbs at home (I've been studying herbalism for 2 years now) and have 3 small veg patches which have been a bit hit and miss. I Love cooking and baking, and this year we made our own cider, fruit vodkas and gins. I'm also mad about knitting and collect vintage books/mags.
Anyway, hi to all and I look forward to getting to know you better

Hello Candy and welcome to a great and diverse forum. I've been drifting in and out of Downsizer seemingly forever but keep coming back. Keep the dream and be the change in your life you want to see as Ghandi said.

Thank you for the lovely welcome! I've replied to Nell through pm, but in case anyone else near London is interested in Herbalism I studied at The Mary Ward Centre. Off to have a good read on the boards now!
