Surfacing for air again after a hellish month, many many thanks to Dixiebelle and Molly for their patience in waiting for their gifted books; I made it to the post office yesterday!
It has been a huge month emotionally for me. For those who have peeked across at one of the other pages here you would have read about what's happened. It has taken me back down to the lowest lows and back up again.
What has given me more buoyancy? Hearing the ABC Classic FM interview about a book called "Slow Death by Rubber Duck" by Rick Smith and Bruce Lourie. I'm back on my frugal lifestyle track again so will head off to the library today to ask them to get this book in. The first change I am making to my family's life is to definatly stop using commercial toothpaste. After hearing that a pesticide 'triclosan' is an ingredient in most toothpastes there is no way I'm letting my family use this poison!
Anyway the Chirpies are up now (they have graduated from being Tots now) so signing off for now
