  Yeah. That’s what this dish is called. It’s the meal I make and drop off when someone has a baby or they are sick. It’s the meal that is in our freezer in small portions for Luke to take to work. It’s the meal my friends know me for. It’s not Masterchef quality, but […]

I need a project

May 26, 2014

  It’s getting cold. The days are short and I can feel my mood sinking. I hate winter. I grew up where it never really got very cold and there were still plenty of daylight hours, regardless of the season. I try my best every year to just get on with it. Put on a […]

      You know I’ve been talking the “learn in their own time natural learning unschooling yada yada” talk for some time. But I have a confession to make. I really thought Tannah would be reading independently by now. Enjoying books and doing some research on her own even. It’s easy to be all […]

Recycled furniture- kid’s bedrooms

April 30, 2014

  Like Little Eco Footprints, we love a bit of pre-loved furniture here. When lots of people think about recycling they think of putting their plastic in the right bin and that’s about it. But if you’ve ever used hand-me-down clothes (which we also love) or had a dig around in an op shop then […]

Slowing down

April 28, 2014

  It’s easy to be busy. There is always something going on. A new class to try, a new group to check out, all the regular things we love. And when we say yes to something it’s mostly a success so we were starting to feel like we would be missing out unless we said […]
