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…

"Mummy take a picture and put it on share.  It's my greatest Mixel yet, he's called Grey" - Euan aged 6. #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog #welovelego The boys are asleep and I'm eagerly awaiting the return of @musicalgeorgemoorey to hear all about the latest #spacesgloucester recording.  His kit is all in the hallway but he is not.  Gone for food I expect, the cats are waiting to pounce on him as soon as he walks through the door (and yet I have fed them, they just love him that much)
#gloucesterlife I'm thinking it's about time I made these brie baked apples with hazelnut crust again.  For a no-added-sugar version you could poach them in fruit juice or herbal tea instead of syrup (recipe on my blog)  #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #bakedapples🍎 L's been pondering what he wants to be when he's older!  #photogridwowcam #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog Billy scratching to be let out and annoy @musicalgeorgemoorey as he records a piano track downstairs for the next #spacesgloucester track.  Billy always wants to get in on the music making but it's especially appropriate this time as the song is based on a poem by 9th century irish monk about his cat Pangur Bahn!  #gloucesterlife #whitelonghairedcat Picnic lunch with our @oxouk measuring cups again.  It seems to make the whole thing about getting toddlers to eat a bit less overwhelming and takes away that adult thing of needing to clear your plate.  We just all have forks and dig in to what takes our fancy.  Yes I have no idea how much L has actually eaten when we do this but I'm learning to trust his little body.  I like the mantra "we choose what he eats, he chooses how much" so as long as I keep offering nourishing food it will all be ok :0). #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #fussytoddler #oxogoodgrips #picnicfood When the chocolate brownies that popped up in your feed are on your mind all morning but you're feeling inspired by your sugar free friend @darojolu you find yourself eating these for elevenses!  Banana and date squidgy oaties, an old recipe from the blog with a new sprinkling of unsweetened cocoa and @pulsinandbeond pea protein.  1 banana made 6 cookies and if we eat them all in one sitting there's absolutely no guilt! #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #sugarfreekids #sugarfreecooking #pulsinpeaprotein #newblog post - reflecting weekly  on the beauty in every day moments, reasons to be thankful and celebrating small successes with the #myheartylife linky.  More about staying at home with children, decluttering successes and beautiful music on the blog - link in profile.  If you're liking the good cheer of #myheartylife  check out @the_hearty_life who started it all and @mummytodex and @mymamamusings
