Time Flies

Well here it is almost a month since my last post, where does the time go??

I think about blogging most days but am not sure who I am "blogging to"   and some of my thoughts would not be suitable (say for potential employers)   or maybe a freind may think i am dissing them.  :-(     but then again no one is actually following this blog so maybe i am safe    

What to do??  keep typing random thoughts and see where it takes me or censor them...????   and become bogged.....

School Holidays

I have Miss 19 and Mr 11 home from uni and school,  it's school holiday time here, we love school holidays, when we can stay up and sleep in!!    I have been lucky with my kids, they are happy to hang around home, watch some DVD's play computer games, we have gotten out a jigsaw puzzle, and invited friends over.  Some people seem to hate school hols  I don't i love them!!!    

I wonder what other people think and why?   .

Why a almost Hippy???

You might notice that I call myself an almost hippy...  
Part of my journey..... I come from blue collar stock.... Married and lived a middle class life... divorced and lived at the lower end of middle class...   where I guess I still sort of  am....  

Some of my ideals are hippy like according to some people in my life... I try and be green  I use natural products to clean when ever I can, I use herbal medicines in preference to presribed stuff ( but i do go to doctors and do use prescribed medicines)     I dress low key..... have no interest in Brands or fashion ...  etc

Ideaslistically I'd like to
  • rely on my car less,  but am too lazy.......    
  • live more simply, but stuff keeps multiplying in my house
  • eat more healthily... organically.... and Australian.....  I attempt to buy Australian and organic but not yet healthily
  • I am attempting to buy fair trade (chocolate, tea and coffee so far)  but it is more expensive....
  • I aim to try and buy from small businesses, rather than giant conglomerates but my kids LOVE maccas!
 Maybe some day I'll share things I have found out that have led me to Fair Trade purchases.   

Enough meandering ramblings  for today.....   ciao

The Very First Post

Ever feel like you don't belong that somehow you don't fit???

I often feel like the proverbial square peg in a round hole or round peg in a square hole.......

I am not sure to whom I am writing this too, or if anyone.....   Or if anyone even would want to read random thoughts of a Middle aged, Middle Class almost Hippy who is going through a Mid life Crisis...

 So if you have stumbled upon this blog I hope you aren't too bamboozled....
