Hungover foraging 

Bushcraft seeps into every part of our life, it’s official! 

Flint just can’t get enough of it and sometimes I think it’s really really great. For example, Flint made a really cool gift for the bride a groom at their beautiful wedding. He carved a spatula and spoon from sweet chestnut wood and pyrographied (if that’s a word?) their names and wedding date. A really thoughtful gift I thought 🙂 


Whilst at the wedding Flint was recruited for wood splitting for the fires and he made sure the party had plenty of fuel. A bus man’s holiday! 


It was a great day and night with lots of laughs and we are feeling pretty tired coming home. However he wasn’t too tired to make a quick bushcraft stop at the side of the road to pick up some long plants which I am reliably informed are rosebay willow herb. Apparently this makes cordage which of course is very exciting…


We are travelling in my car and I can’t say I’m all that impressed by the mess he’s made! 



1st job for him this afternoon needs to be cleaning my car! X
