So much nostalgia x
Welcome to UKHIppy
UKHippy is a long running online community and of likeminded people exploring all interpretations on what it means to be living an alternative lifestyle -- we welcome discussions on everything related to sustainability, the environment, alternative spirituality, music, festivals, politics and more -- membership of this website is free but supported by the community.
There should be more hippies in stoke!
This is really positive
Encouraging community spirit, woop
I wouldnt change the name... I like being a hippy and meeting/knowing other hippies!
I would seriously benefit and be very grateful for more self sufficiency stuff as a resource.
When possibly i think that an annual massive gathering and mini regional gatherings would help others establish bonds with one another and feel more part of the place and strengthen things. But then again i am biased being a technophobe lol
People might think this is off topic or irrational but with watching the self sufficient heating systems on grand designs and the neighbourhood/houses that people built together as a co operative and the communities in wales and scotland, it shows that living together as a community is realistically achievable, diggers and dreamers shows woofing etc but i would be really interested inmore accessible and substantial information on avenues to join something more permanent like that, but not sure if/when they become available and spring up etc as they're not very common and probably not too widely advertised or maybe im just not looking in the right places..
Maybe when i start a commune in 20years time you can all come and live with me
I think that the little things count and can make a difference, the country may be getting worse but this site is a refuge for those that are alternative/liberal and is needed for those to connect with likeminded individuals that desire that
Being excellent to one another
Great fire pics, i use paraffin or colemans and cathedral poi x
Condolences to friends and family x
Why did they have to pull it down?
I kind of meant it in the same vain of making my own scented skin and hair products i could have them all my favourite fragrance and have it more organic rather than artificial chemicals and stuff but i get that buying candles would probably be cheaper lol althoufh that candle holder sounds awesome!
I saw a trick on come dine with me where this girl melted all these little bits of old miscalleneous candles together to make another whole one and putting it in a china teacup with a wick
I relate to the buddhist philosophy, only with too much self doubt and i dont believe in reincarnation.
I have trouble meditating by myself but i found going to a class at my local library and being in a group and hearing someone guide me through the relaxing of the muscles in my body and breathing
Etc helps me focus and stick with it instead of getting distracted and making a brew and stuff.. i found i feel so much better afterwards
Very interested also for recipes!!
Does anybody make their own candles? X
I think its called emotionally drained and uninhibited by social convention norms
Suck a fuck
Fuckity fuck fuxk fuck
Today i feel so fucking angry i could spit or rip the back out of someone and then just givr a fuckadoodledoo
Im infuriated, furious at the self righteous fuckity prick sanctomonious cunt.
And leukemia and my friends anniversary of her death soon i wish she was here, she'd know what to do.
I wish i could help you, i hope im doing the right thibg.
Moving and clearing out is shitty stressful
I took it out on her, it was bad but i shouldnt of verbally been harsh...godamn my patience
maggie thank you! Will check it out
Hippy hole i wanna work in your shop dude!
i want to get out of the mainstream aswell... i've been looking on diggers and dreamers for a few vacancies of membership to help out in shared/communal houses but i'm too scared as i have no extra money saved and what if i need new clothes etc or girly necessities... i would love to work and help out at a retreat doing yoga and meditation but i cant find any vacancies...its probably highly sort after anyhow.

hi coco i go to castle (thats what they call it there) every month as i have friends there and it's 20 minutes away, it's really lovely and a lot more countryesque than a lot of other areas in stoke which are just concrete :s
the people are nice and its cool...they have a hippy hippy shake shop and something next to it which is a lot like macouti
Life can be difficult sometimes, you can get stressed out or feel a bit blue.
What is your go to thing to make you feel better?
Or possible positive things you think about?
Maybe its a favourite hobbie? A comedy film? Meditation?
What helps for you?
feeling pretty rubbish. i have course work to do and i feel so tired and groggy even though i havent drank alcohol its asif im hungover. i'm constantly tearful over the loss of a good friend. im struggling, my partner is not helping with the way he talks to me, being alone at night is making me worse as i just want him to hold me but he doesn want me there until tomorrow as he cant concentrate on work while im there. even though i do my coursework better at his as my environment here is dysfunctional. now im being teased by a friend and its just urghhhh
Sensitive, lazy, irritable and sleepy
I feel ok...but its just one thing after another with people falling out with eachother on seperate occasions and different people im leaving them to it
my shin hurts
i ate too much
im really confused by human behaviour
i want to simplify my life so that i dont keep getting caught up in stuff and it blagging my head
a person who i thought was a really good friend lying to me...why lie to me? why do it? i feel so hurt i dont even know why probably because i care too much and i need to just leave you alone now
so knackered and tired and bored and my feet hurt so much..i have no idea where my life is heading and feel like im drifting..wish i believed in something and there could be a sign to put me in the right direction so that i could make something of my life
more like...where has the last year gone? its gone so quick! so much has happened.
like time goes really fast or really slow, life is so strange the way things pan out and evolve. so contradicting and surprising.
unreliable stop smoking service!
what is it with people..they wait too long and you think they're not interested so you move on only when you have moved on, then they repent.
we argue like crazy, the passion is not there anymore, you are far too submissive, we are too incompatible and not on the same wavelength...not to mention i am with someone else that i am in love with?
how do i tell you in a nice way that if i was with you it would be settling? but i don't mean that in a horrible way as i still love you..just not in love with you and i value your friendship after us always being there for eachother and going through what we have? if you had a backbone i would go back to you in a heartbeat but i don't want a life where you are her scivvy at my expense
life is just too complicated
i really thought you would make such a good friend as we had so much in common, why tf did you have to hit on me? i have to sit next to you and your wife every month, who is amazing by the way- and now you have ruined it and made it awkward as arse!
i trusted you
I was raised on robinsons
I prefer tea with the milk in first.. Not a coffee lover as it gives me heartburn.
When not being a good girl, its jack daniels all the way! Im a sugar addict lol
Or any whisky preferably famous grouse, grants or glenfidditch. Bells is too sharp for me. I also like brandy, navy rum, scotch could never drink it straight though..
Also bucksfizz in the summer.
I never drink alone only socially or when im out so not every day.
Cant stand beer wine or cider unfortunately
