more or less?

July 13, 2010 at 5:56 pm 12 comments

fear less, hope more;  eat less, chew more;  whine less, breathe more;
talk less, say more;  hate less, love more and all good things will be yours.

What have you been doing more or less of this week?

    less driving, more cycling; more gardening, less housework; less blogging, more socialising; less discipline, more lbs.

    no housework, more baking, more stitching, more entertaining, more veg collecting from my plot and lots of hanging about waiting for the workmen to turn up and fix our chimney!

    Been to a couple of Chamber Of Commerce meetings and helping to fight a political battle to bring a garbage transfer station into our city. It would lower our garbage rate, bring us a fat lease on unused city property and be emptied every day by larger trucks.
    But selling that to some citizens is extremely difficult. Other than that, I’ve been “over the moon”.

    gorgeous post – more baking, more knitting, more driving and less walking – must reverse that one!

    glad to hear you’ve all been letting the housework slide in favour of creativity and play :o)

    Tom – you’ve been working hard! Love that otherwise you’re ‘over the moon’. Long may that continue …

    MC – wet and windy has continued through the work for you. Great for the garden though :o)

    Michael Pollan – “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants”

    (from ‘In Defense(sic) of Food’ – American book hence crazy spelling – http://michaelpollan.com/books/in-defense-of-food/ )

    Good read…

I love how an ordinary moment frozen in time by the camera can actually reveal so much. Luca is all about inhabiting his body and jumping, running and climbing. Euan is all about the quirkiness, curiosity and inventions. There's more about these best friend brothers on the blog in this month's #siblingsproject post #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
This little one is negotiating hard to get out of food shopping with me. Even saying that poor Daddy will be hungry if we don't restock the fridge isn't working. Apparently Daddy will be fine eating a wooden mushroom while L watches telly! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerantics💜
#mischiefmakers #summerreadingchallenge starts today - you can find out more at your local library. E was excited to sign up and work towards earning his medal. There are some great activities taking place in Gloucestershire libraries this summer. #welovereadingbooks #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I'd love a packet of crisps the size of a pillow case to make the same toddler-to-Doritos bag ratio. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #toddlerliferocks
Love Saturday mornings. E's busy creating already with @geomagworld #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Beach buddies #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #bestfriendbrothers #nipitinthebudblog
Happy memories of our Cornwall break last month at the start of this super sunny heatwave season. #lightroomstoriescontest #adobelightroom #nipitinthebudblog
Our first "soaked on the school run" selfie in a long long time! So many smiles and "yay, it's raining" from everyone in the playground ☔😄 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I think Luca was channelling his inner Monet when he painted his duck money box #2yearoldartist #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
I love finding pictures on my phone I'd forgotten about that remind me of a really special time with my boys (the Project Pilgrim celebration at @GlosCathedral a couple of weeks ago) #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Love this kids creativity - there's only so many times you can tolerate your little brother interrupting your game of giant Connect 4 after all! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
L fell asleep in the car today and stayed asleep when I got him out. I took this picture thinking I'd savour the moment and then wake him so that bedtime wouldn't be messy but just look at that face, I couldn't. So I enjoyed the cuddle instead and he's now snoring blissfully beside me again. Trust your baby, he knows what he needs 😴 #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
