While I said a couple of posts back that I don't do resolutions and I set goals when I need to, not wait for a new year, I can't help but reflect on 2011 and set some goals for 2012.
I've got to say I'm struggling in the vege patch, crops are failing and I simply don't have enough room and energy to be where I want to be. Therefore my goal is to just do what I can, don't stress and don't let plants die! Read more and understand the plant's needs not just expect them to grow themselves. Do it right the first time.
My plan of becoming a full-time homemaker is finally going to happen, well in March it will. I am driving the kids up to the Gold Coast for 3 weeks and will not be returning to work after that. I don't work school holidays, so these 7 weeks with no extra income is a test to see if I can do it. So far? hmmm, I need to put in more effort in the cooking area.
It doesn't help that last night we got a phone call asking for Dan to play cricket next week in Horsham for the Mt Gambier under 15 squad. He leaves tomorrow with the coach as I am unable to to pay for 5 nights accomodation with 2 days notice. They will be tenting it in a caravan park, of course I will still have to provide food money for him, but it's cheaper than me going for the week. I will be driving over on Thursday to watch him play that day and Friday, even in a town like Horsham, I can't find anything under $100/night!
I will be putting a lot of time into my other source of income, my market stall. Over on 'One Crafty Habitat' I have talked about including organic and re-purposed lines to my stall. This is exciting and I can't wait to be able to offer alternatives to my customers.
Another thing I will be doing in the new year, as I listen Lachie's continuous coughing, is to ask for a referral to a specialist for his asthma/allergy ongoing problems. I think he's is on too much medication and it's not under control.
So there you have it, I've made a few goals.

Wishing all a happy New Year and thank you for your support and encouragement over the last year.


  1. Happy New Year!

    I agree-hotels are so outrageous now. I'm planning our vacation for this upcoming summer and hotels are ALWAYS over $100. C'mon-that's crazy for one night!

  2. Happy New Year!!

  3. can you pull your caravan behind your car and sleep in that?
