I have been following Christine at Slow Living Essentials for a couple of years now! And in 2012 she started a monthly round up to record on our blog, how we have "slowed down" under nine categories - I have been doing this since she started it at the beginning and really get a lot out of it.
Here is what I have been up to!
Cant think of anything new for this category....
I'm studying a new unit at Uni and am busy reading text books on event management.... Interesting stuff but right off the scale for the usual events that happen in my life! Although it give an amazing insight into what goes into organising even quite small events like a dawn service for Anzac Day...
We host international students for a local English school and over Easter they decided they wanted to go camping for the long weekend. Booking a campsite the week before Easter was an impossibility and so plan B was dreamed up. They ended up camping in our back yard and did day trips around the area. It was great fun! Different days bought different faces and on Sunday night - we had 14 people for Pizza! Cantonese, Dutch, Korean, German, French, Taiwanese, Japanese and even a Kiwi and a Pom!
This one is my addition to the 9. I have been setting myself wee challenges that improve my life over the month. I have gone carless one day a week, stopped buying anything but petrol from a petrol station, paid out my credit card, and tried to exercise more.
This month I want to catch up with some friends I haven't seen for a long time! I have at least four friend that I'm well overdue to spend some time with. This should be an easy challenge really!
As always I enjoy popping over to see what other slow livers are up to. Sometimes I can't get past the security things (You know, put in the letters or numbers thingos) but even if you cant see my comment, know I have been and enjoyed!
Thanks for the opportunity to share again Christine!!! Have a great month everyone! - Kxx
