What a year.

Right – what an amazing year it’s been for us.  But clearly, blogging has not been high on the priority list!  I intend for that change from now on!

Brief run down of the year and my broad plan for this blog:

We moved to the beautiful, green outer eastern suburbs and are loving it – I intend to share pictures and posts of how we are slowly changing our new house to become our new home.

I gave birth to our amazing, beautiful and gorgeous little girl.  Awe inspiring.  Hard.  Scary. Wonderful.  I plan to blog about many parenting inspired things – birthing, changes to relationships, to self, the fun, the hard, the good, the unexpected.

Frugal or budget smart living – I’m not great at this, but I plan to throw myself in to it this year – the overall goal for us being that I don’t go back to work for as long as we can manage!  This has already begun with us having a detailed budget, growing and preserving food, looking at making our own foods like yoghurt and breads and considering getting some chooks!  We are keen to live as sustainably and ethically as possible, but know this will entail changing how we currently live.  We’ll see how it goes…….

I am also learning to sew – inspired by my mother, a close friend and many blogs I am really quite keen on developing this skill.  I would love to eventually earn some money from sewing but we’ll see.

My other goal is to develop my blogging skills – to both challenge myself and for the sake of anyone who stumbles across this blog!!!

I am going to aim for two posts a week as a minimum.  Let’s see how it goes!!

  • Good luck! They are great goals. I am a self taught sew-er and have only had my machine for a year. Having a little girl is great inspiration for sewing, I think that was a huge reason why I started to sew.
