Thank you for your well wishes yesterday, I think it was a 24 hour bug as while I'm not feeling myself, I'm certainly a lot better.
As I spent the day on the couch I had time to reflect how far I'd come this year and what my goals would be in 2012. I'm not into New Year's resolutions as such. I believe when the time is right for change then make the change don't wait for the start of a new year to do it.
The good thing about being sick is that I have been about to break the cycle of my one addiction (aside from all of my craft addictions that is), diet coke!!!! I loathe myself for drinking it and every day I wake up saying that I won't touch the poison, yet for some reason I have been unable to break free from it's chemical claws. I am feeling very strong (just the thought of diet coke makes me want to vomit) and I know that a week from now I won't crave it anymore.
I try really hard to feed my family from scratch, some days this feels impossible, but with the school holidays started, I feel more in control and will certainly be stepping up my efforts to produce great wholesome, non-processed foods that my family will all enjoy. I am on holidays from work for 7 weeks also, this gives me time to do just what I want to do to become more self reliant and see how much money I can save by being at home.
I'm off to wash my fruit and make some yummy jam.
