I’m looking forward to making jumpers and snuggling up rather than cranking the heater up. Fewer lights and more candles. I’ve also been trying to eliminate processed foods from my diet in the hope of feeling generally better. I’m not ill- just “not right” and sluggish. I’m pining over a bicycle (she’s just like Edna that I’ve been coveting for a while!) My sewing class achievements mean that I can now make myself some lovely clothes and not feel like it’s “home made”. I’ve asked Mr Honi to build me a compost (and I now plan my weeks cooking and buy only what I need for each recipe which means I am limiting my waste). I’ve also asked him to make a hose from the washing machine to use the grey water in the garden. Plus I’m saving money – I bought ink refillers for our printer which literally saved me about $40!!! I’d love to have a chook or two for fresh eggs each morning. And If Mr Honi weren’t highly allergic, I’d keep bees too. I love the thought of only buying fresh fruit and veg at Farmers markets every Saturday morning – and never really stepping into a gigantic shopping centre again.
Can anyone recommend a good Farmers Market in Sydney? I’ve heard a lot are dodgey.
I’m setting myself a challenge to change at least one thing each week to make our household a happier, cheaper, greener home. I’ll keep you up to date on what I do!
