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”.

    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/ )

Lunch served on a bed of allotment grown lettuce to make up for the distinct lack of a certain green ingredient from my Greek Salad (I can't really call it that anyway as I can't resist adding balsamic vinegar). #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife

My fab little elderflower forager #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #foragersdelight #foragingisfun
It's the season - elderflower cordial making. Everything about this activity was sheer delight from picking with L to making with a friend. And the smell and taste, so yummy. Details on the blog (link in bio)
Fathers Day came and went with G having to work away for the day and me being busy with the boys at my parents. So I didn't get the chance to say what a brilliant, supportive and kind Father and husband G is. This is Luca at 4 days old snugged into his Dad's hoody when I was too ill with an infection to hold him We were cup feeding him expressed milk because he had a tongue tie and couldn't nurse. Hard times are always made easier with @musicalgeorgemoorey by my side. #nipitinthebudblog #coparentingdad #gloucesterlife
"This is the stuff of nightmares". If you're living and loving through childhood cancer, know someone who is or simply care about others please read and share @the_tightrope_walker 's latest post. Such courage with her own son's cancer journey but determined to raise awareness along the way #childhoodcancerawarenessmonth
Both boys are home with coughs and colds today so home-made #wildgarlicpestopasta for lunch is about as wild as it's going to get today #30dayswild
Lots of redcurrant jelly makers out there judging by this week's blog stats. #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #redcurrantjelly
We haven't even left the bedroom yet and Euan's got his nature head on for #30dayswild - pretending to be Walter the slug from Beatbugs using his IKEA tunnel! @gloswildlife #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Day 16 of #30dayswild - reading nature stories at bedtime. One of E's favourites 'The winter hedgehog'. When I said to E we hadn't really done a random act of wildness today he immediately replied "yes we did, we went outside, we looked at flowers and Luca picked up pine cones on the way to Alfie's party". Oh yes! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog @gloswildlife
Spotted Superboy out and about in Gloucester today! #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife
