A TO Z FAIL. FREE OUR KIDS WIN
I told you that I am good at starting things but kinda suck at finishing. So I got to "N" in the A to Z challenge. Not bad. Better than I had thought and the only real reason I didn't finish is because Christmas happened and I was away and the internet was slow and there were children everywhere and gosh darn it I was on holidays. And now that 2013 is here, I feel that completing the A to Z month would just be so last year. So there.
Hello 2013. You look like a shimmering jewel among the pile of semi precious stones and pebbles of my past. Please do not be a mirage! So far you are coming home with the goods. It's great! I hope everyone else is having a great 2013 so far.
After the holidays I am feeling refreshed, inspired and full of sprite. you are meant to right?!
Well check this out... It's something that I have stumbled upon that I find very refreshing and inspiring.
This awesome mum has decided to cut the monetary crap out of their lives and live an entire year with her toddler basically for free. Hand me down clothes only, free and inventive activities, no more expensive toddler foods but real family food etc I LOVE IT. And I love that she isn't afraid to share her life in all it's messy (actually not very. I should do a 'home' post. Now that's messy) glory. So many bloggers out there are clad in designer wear, with designer babies in DIY designer homes. So nice that there is a mum out there just like me/us living the real life, trying to make ends meet, with a gorgeous happy child that doesn't require anything other than love, warm clothes, decent food, a roof and an imagination to make them happy.
Check it out. It's inspiring and refreshing and will hopefully leave you full of sprite too.
