While over at Down to Earth today I saw a post from a member about using a natural wood polish. This polish is made from 50% lemon/vinegar solution that I have talked about making before and 50% olive oil.
I made up the solution right away, gave it a shake and with a soft cloth applied it to our solid wood kitchen cupboards. I was very impressed and then decided to try it on our Heidi scratched lower doors.
Okay, so now I was truely amazed!!! This product cut through grease on the rangehood, cleaned away dirty marks and made the scratches from our dog disappear.
I'm off to keep cleaning my woodwork.

What a lovely day we had and Dad was all smiles. I'm so glad we could do this for him.
I love you Dad, happy birthday.

Yesterday I spent some time cleaning out and moving my late 1800's meatsafe back down into the kitchen. As I looked at it, I couldn't quite decide what to place in it. This cupboard has been in most rooms of our home and as housed lots of different things like quilts, books, china, toys and odds and ends.

I can't tell you how excited I am to begin another of Heather's courses. I learnt so much from 30 day vegan and this one will have so much more to offer as it's a 3 month course, I am so happy to be doing this with a friend as I'm sure at times I will find it a challenge and I know Rose will be there to listen and offer advice. Ummmm, you will be won't you Rose?

This year I am dedicating more time to me. I'm not a selfish person but I really feel that I need to spend more time on myself doing what makes me happy.
I have started studying my natural therapies diplomas and am beginning with aromatherapy and kinesiology. I have always had an big interest in natural therapies and I feel that now the kids are all at school it's time to pursue those interests.
I gave up going to yoga class about 1 1/2 years ago when my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had so much going on and didn't feel right or have the time to do something for myself. I have been doing yoga at home throughout this time but I felt like I needed some structure and gentle pushing that I couldn't give myself. I went back to class last night and it was wonderful. I slept so soundly last night for the first time in ages and I just feel great today. Sadly my finances won't allow more than one class a week but I think that should be enough to get me on track for my home practice.
My wonderful husband left me an email to read this morning that he wrote. I won't put it up here but lets just say I'm feeling very appreciated and loved at the moment.
Lastly, I have taken up my moderator position once more over at Down To Earth. I really missed moderating with Rhonda and the team and in hind-sight should never have left.
Well I'm off to clean our home and bake some yummy goodies for the kids when they get home from school.
