We have Moved

Come and visit the new site, Bumbles & Light.


What a lovely first day back in Germany. I arrived home yesterday morning after a very early flight, the day was spent cleaning up and putting up some new christmas decorations.

This morning I woke up to my first snow of the christmas season and it is beautiful.

I've been listening to some Christmas classics on my kitchen CD player, Frank Sinatra, The Andrews Sisters, Bing Crosby et al. I also found some lovely indie christmas/winter songs including this one which is lovely

I'm still working on decorations, we're going to be making some printed wrapping paper today and maybe papier mache baubles.

I am a 24 year old British stay at home mother to a two year old boy. Married to a U.S. soldier and currently living in Germany.

I have seen the Vatican from the very top of St Peter's Basilica, the mud in the World War I trenches outside Ypres. I have walked through Montmartre side streets bustling with people in the evening, gotten lost in the streets of Greenwich Village NYC, run through cornfields on the Welsh border and sat outside with a cup of tea watching fireflies in the fields of the outer Chicago suburbs.

I have held the hands of others through addiction, fear, suicide, despair and come out the other side. I have left everything behind to begin anew.
I have fought mental illness and walked through snow in the mountains of the lake district, England. I have explored the morgue in the bowels of an abandoned hospital on a summer evening, climbed to the top of scaffolding on the outside of a five floor warehouse to look at the city lights of Nottingham at night and I have watched the sun setting on the Texas horizon.

I have held my son's tiny hand through the plastic window on an isolette in the NICU ward. Walked, speaking only in whispers, through the catacombs beneath the ground on the outskirts of Rome and seen the fireworks over Heidelberg castle.
