About The Nice Nest

So what’s The Nice Nest about?

My name is Alison and I started The Nice Nest blog as I began to explore living a simpler life.  After years of busy careers, we are trying to work out what comes next.


We don’t want to stop work.  It’s more a case of working out how to do more of what we enjoy.

Over the years we have become increasingly aware of our impact on the environment and are taking steps to “green” our life where we can.  This is an ongoing journey where we try what works for us and what doesn’t.

Now when something needs to be done or an item needs to be replaced, the first question we ask is can we do it, repair it or make it ourselves.

Food is another interest – buying it, growing it, cooking it and eating it!

The Nice Nest is a place for my ramblings on home, food, gardening and the odd craft project.

Thank you for your visit, please pop back from time to time to check out what’s new.  It could be anything from cooking, the veg plot, home DIY or sewing and everything in between that contributes to making a Nice Nest!

Until next visit…
