Purple Death Day

September 30th, 2009 by Heidi

A while back I discovered a blog called Gardening without skills who host a monthly Garden Blogger’s Death Day. Given my ‘talent’ in the garden I was thinking this would be something I could quite easily take part in.

The Sheep Show

September 29th, 2009 by Heidi

When we lived in England we used to like to go to country and craft fairs when we could, and it was at one of these that we first encountered The Sheep Show. Now this was before we had any real interest in sheep, but still it was one of the most entertaining and memorable things we ever came across.

We’re back!

September 28th, 2009 by Heidi

As you may have guessed from the silence on here we have been on holiday. I had a plan to write and schedule some posts before we went away but sadly things rather got away from me. For those of you who don’t ‘know’ us, we have just had a rather self-indulgent trip back to England for my little brother’s wedding.

You Capture – something new

September 10th, 2009 by Heidi

We have been all over the place in the last few days exploring and playing tourist. We have toured the Parliament buildings, cruised the river, searched for basking turtles, relaxed on the beach, mooched around Merickville, and eaten lots of very good food.

Sort of Holiday

September 6th, 2009 by Heidi

We are having a sort of holiday so you will have to bear with me if posts get a little few and far between. Yesterday we collected Steve’s mum, sister and brother-in-law from the airport – and they brought me proper chocolate! :)

Fight Back Fridays

September 4th, 2009 by Heidi

As you can probably guess if you have read any of this blog or the website we are very concerned about our food where it comes from, how it gets here and whats been done to it along the way. Now while I still feel that we are in the minority, recently I have discovered a number of projects, films and websites that show that ‘caring’ is becoming a lot more popular.

Tagged by Kindness

September 1st, 2009 by Heidi

We are selling Tagged by Kindness (think “pay it forward” concept for 2009) tags on behalf of Willow’s Paws & Claws Rescue.

It’s pretty cool – for $5 you get 2 tags which you register and then when you do a nice gesture for someone you give them the card (looks like a gift card/credit card) then the recipient does an act of kindness and passes on the card, repeat ad infinitum. Whenever the card is given and acknowledged online you will receive an email letting you know where your tags are in the world and what acts of kindness are being given because of your initial good deed.
