Our Life and Other Stuff

We are a family of seven. My husband and I have been married for 26 years, sharing the house with three of the children, two dogs and a cat. Things are changing as children leave home and we're kind of excited about the next step of the journey.

Saturday Morning Musings

I'm a 40 something working mum with 2 gorgeous boys (well they're men now but they will always be boys to me) and an equally gorgeous husband who loves and supports  me unconditionally (even if he silently thinks I'm a little nuts). I have many interest including craft, reading, cooking, being frugal and making my house a home. I hope you enjoy my blog.

A Frugal Life Down Under

I'm a 40ish Mum (Jane)of an almost 9 year old girl (TootToot). I have been married to the same wonderful man (Guitar Man) for so long I can't count the years on my hands and feet. 
I am on a journey to an increasingly thrifty lifestyle. Thank goodness my family are happy to journey with me.
So, shall we journey together you and I?

Our Journey with Hemihypertrophy

I live in Western Australia with my children Logan and Abby. 
Abby has a rare medical condition called hemihypertrophy, also known as hemihyperplaysia. 

When we first found out about her condition I searched the Internet for hours but couldn't find many personal stories. I have started this blog to inform other sufferers and/or parents about what we are going through with Abby and how her condition is affecting her and our family.


Little Eco Footprints

I live on a small urban block in Newcastle (Australia).
I once dreamed of living closer to nature; having space
to grow food; having a teeny little ecological footprint
and being part of a community. I thought that meant leaving 
the city, but now I know I can try to live that dream right here.
We don't have Little eco footprints yet - but we're having fun trying

Absurb Parents

Our household consists of a myself - N a 33yr old single mother,who is attempting to co-parent part time with 40yr old - M. There are 3 children L- a twelve year old boy who talks incessantly about football, D- a 2 year old boy who has the face of a cherub and 
the mischief of a leprechaun and S- a 9 week old who is on soy formula and to the absolute delight and hysteria of her brothers produces at opportune moments loud and noxious plumes of gas.

Sunny Corner Farm

I live on a 40 acre farm. I have a large garden and keep Suffolk sheep, chickens, ducks, turkeys and bees. 
We try to grow as much of our own food as possible.


A Tray of Bliss

It's about finding a peaceful moment every day, 
and enjoying something beautiful on a pretty tray...
from craft, to reading, to learning a language, 
to cooking and baking.

Living The Dream

Our dream is to have our own lifestyle block, running goats, 
sheep, chickens etc, and growing our own fruit and vegetable. 
We are currently living on a 1/4 acre section and I am trying 
to develop our vege garden and fruit plants to be as self sufficient as we can be in town. I am trying to reduce our 
impact on the environment by reducing rubbish, recycling 
and providing for ourselves. 
Join us on our journey to Living our dream!

The Craft Cave
Welcome to our new blog! 
No Spending in the year of 2011. We are taking the monthly challenge 
and STRETCHING it a bit further. 
The moment, we are planning the rules for the year, as year is a long time. 
People have their own unique ways of doing this, so we have to make it our own

Travelling The Road Too ....

We need to reach that happy balance of needs versus wants, 
of being mindful with our money, and knowing that if we had to, 
we could make do without an income for a long time. Which 
brings our family to travel the road to our financial freedom. 
2011 will be our No Spend Challenge Year.

IT (again, the realm in which I work), and Travel - especially Travel.
