Fig Jam and Lime Cordial by Celia @ Fig Jam And Lime Cordial - 2w ago

Every day brings a new story…grab a cuppa and let me tell you about our Persian rug. 30 years ago, when we were young and stupid, we bought a deceased estate federation house. It was in a seriously dilapidated condition – no inside toilet, no hot water, no laundry, no shower. The tiny kitchen had […]

. . . . . My young friends have a current slang term – they talk about being “woke”. Loosely translated, it means “aware”. And once we start looking into waste and sustainability and our impact on the environment, it’s very hard to stay asleep. Whether we like it or not, we end up woke. […]

A long time ago, I worked at Reverse Garbage with the irrepressible Belinda M. She was sassy, totally adorable and had her own unique view of the world. I remember the morning she came in and declared that she was no longer a vegetarian – she’d watched David Attenborough’s “Life of Plants” and decided that […]

The True Cost is an incredibly moving documentary, and one which is relevant to all of us. I strongly urge you to watch it – it’s available on Netflix, or you can purchase it directly from the movie  website. . . . . . . . . . . You might never look at clothing […]

My hands and wrists don’t do well in cold weather. I try to look after them, but as my mum pointed out recently, they do quite a lot of work. Lately I’ve had some RSI in my wrists, my knuckles are a bit swollen, and because it’s winter, my fingers have started to split again. […]

Sometimes it’s hard to keep up the green momentum, especially when life gets hectic. Does it really make a difference if we turn the heating down by a couple of degrees or take shorter showers? I had an answer to that question today. As I was decluttering and shredding old papers, I found our bill […]

“It is not a plastic bag under the black sedan parked outside your house! It’s a pair of discarded denim jeans…” My old friend Maude, who lives across the road, texted me on her way to pick up The Artist Formerly Known as Pinkabelle from school. Sure enough, the jeans were still there when Big […]

Hello folks, how are you all? It’s been a long time between drinks, as we Aussies might say! My apologies for the radio silence. I’ve been writing this blog for over ten years, and there’s so much content here now that I really only have the urge to put virtual pen to paper when I […]

A few bits and pieces from the last month… . . . . . We’ve recently discovered Faheem Fast Food on Enmore Road. It’s surprisingly good and very well priced, although the service can be a bit aloof at times. We’re late to the party – apparently everyone we know eats there regularly – but […]

Legendary tennis great Arthur Ashe famously said… “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” I first read this quote in Katrina Rodabaugh’s Mending Matters, where she uses it to explain her approach to Slow Fashion. For me, it’s great advice for all of us trying to live a bit greener. […]
