Chasing my tail.

Another week has gone, I don’t know where but all I know it’s not coming back.

Today is Friday and as I write this feel that today is the day I will be chasing my tail.

I have heaps to get done but don’t know where to start. Yesterday I spent the day dreaming about all the things I want (would like) to order for my on line shop Four Red Hens. I love all the shabby chic country look but want to try and stay true to stocking Australian made. This is something that I very passionate about. We are a country that has some of the most talent designers and manufactures, it such a shame it has to go off shore and them come back for all to buy at a cheap price. I personally feel that we should pay the correct price for all the hard work that has gone into the item.

Ok I’m getting of my high horse.

Why I’m I chasing my tail? Here is a list of things that I keep writing each day to be done in my “to do book”

– look into prices and set up for an electric fence
– get prices for 2 goats
– make a new chook dome
– plan my veggie garden
For this to happen I need to make the beds, get some good soil, work out what I’m going to plant
and make sure the wild rabbits can’t get in to the garden
– spring clean the house before winter gets here again
– get the boys to clean there rooms
– get a green house
– look into making my own soap
– get better at my meal planning and to STICK to it
– trying to find somewhere I can buy items in bulk ie borax, washing soda, flour etc
– go through all the boys clothing and sort out and donation whats to small
– get prices for joining the gym again

I know I shouldnt keep stressing about all of this but I would love to get on top of one or two big things.

I know that I have made baby steps towards frugal living but some times would like to feel that some of the big projects also are getting done.

I’ve been reading a few books that I ordered, I read blogs most morning and this helps me as I see that for some people it has taken years to achieve this style of lifestyle.

Here are some of the blogs I read.

The Organised Housewife

So to finish of here are some pics of the week that was.










Until Monday have a great weekend and be safe.
