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/ )

    Good read…

The boys and I had the most gorgeous morning at the allotment. I was pleasantly surprised how much we achieved despite a wandering toddler. We returned with lovely forced pink rhubarb from our plot grandad Dave and also some greener rhubarb from our old plot neighbour. #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #allotmentgardening #growingwithkids #pinkforcedrhubarb
So happy and proud of the infinity Lego cube he's just made. Thank you @sarahfrugalfunforboys for the inspiration and video link #welovelego #gloucesterlife
Not a bad view for my walk home after singing with @musicalgeorgemoorey . I agree with the graffiti! #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #loveglos @gloucestercathedral
Wow, what a way to spend an hour, singing our hearts out on George's final #spacesgloucester recording. So proud of this guy and the beautiful music he's made in collaboration with some other beautiful musicians #gloucesterlife #lookcloserlistendeeper
A beautiful bright sunny evening and I'm excited to be joining @musicalgeorgemoorey here for the final recording of his #spacesgloucester music project.
NOURISH for #mindfulapril with @mamas_scrapbook - a scrambled egg start to my day. A carb heavy diet makes me lethargic and effects my mood so this sets me off on the right foot. Toddler L also loves it and it eases my mind about what else he eats in the day if I know he's had a good breakfast. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
GROWTH - day 18 of #mindfulapril. One son the size of an emperor penguin and one the size of a Gremlin! #gloucesterlife thebudblog #glou
Obsessed with anything with wheels, I turn round to see Luca has nabbed someone's scooter at the park and is legging it! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #scootingtoddler
Well this has been interesting! After a conversation with @pocketfulofconkers I did a Myers Briggs personality test and it seems to be pretty accurate (ISFJ 'Defender'). Do you know your personality type? How has it helped you to understand yourself or the challenges you have with others? #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #myersbriggspersonalitytype
BREATHE - day 17 of #mindfulapril. 6 years old and so happy to be doing this for the first time. His nearly 2 year old brother would try it right now if only he could reach! I'm definitely go to have to learn to pause and breathe when he's bigger. #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #mumbloggeruk
#mindfulapril day 16 - LIGHT. Luca, our little "bringer of light" bored of life on the outside when he was just a day old. Crazy to think he'll be two in just over a week. He brings us so much joy but is also a good metaphor for accepting the shadows that come with the light (aka he's a right monkey!) #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #lucabringeroflight
Missing this fella now he's back at school today. We'd happily go to @wwtslimbridge every day if we home schooled! #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #loveglos #slimbridgewwt #outdoorexplorers #mumbloggeruk
