The journal and muse of Sophie Hudson
- A place to record my journey to a greener life and explore ideas on a vast array of topics too substantial to create just a “one theme blog”, covering:
- Environmental issues
- Health and fitness challenges
- Growing food
- Adventures in the great outdoors
- Personal development through my ongoing learning, social experiments, and creative endeavours.
- Update reports from my garden and my constant struggle to grow lettuce.
- An online space to hold myself accountable for any undertakings from my Life Ticket.
- To share interesting and useful information.
- And a little zone for gratefulness and to also give thanks.
- A place to share ideas.
10 things about me:
- I don’t have a driving license. Not only do I enjoy living a car-free existence but am quite happy to
arguepromote it to others as a choice.
- I’m passionate about growing as much organic food, in my little space, called an urban garden, as possible.
- I’m a big fan of…fan-fiction. I think it develops writers and allows creativity to flow. I don’t believe it takes anything away from the original creator. I think it enhances it.
- I am 100% introverted. Having tried to change I realised it much better to work with my natural persona than it is to fight it.
- I have a terrible fear of flying but it hasn’t ever stopped me from travelling. I’d rather go through the ‘pain’ of flying than not be able to see and experience a new culture/country.
- I am a fully trained Mental Health First Aider at work
- My family means the entire world to me. I also have two furbabies. I am one of those dog lovers – you know, the one that shows off pictures of their dogs and actually speaks to their dog down the phone when they are away? Yup, that’s me. I’m not apologising…
- I grew 200 chilli plants once. I was obsessed with anything chilli. Since then I have learned to curb my passion slightly.
- I’ve completed a very intensive RHS L2 horticulture course.
- I work for the NHS which is this beautiful creation that has become all ‘beast-like’ in the last few years. However, it’s a humbling experience being an employee of an organisation that always goes the extra mile for every single patient it encounters. Every day I get to wake up and say “who am I going to be able to help today?”
I have written three other blogs before this one. Each one has become an evolution from the previous one.
- Growing the Green Life (2015-17)
- Forget-me-Not Cultivation (2012-15)
- Forget-me-Not Chillies (2010-12)
