Two very cool people and a water tank photo

There are numerous things I learn from people around me.  My friends, family, random people I come across.....they teach me about life (good and bad), parenting, friendship, existing, etc.  Blogging has become a whole other community for me and it has taught me SO MUCH.  I started this blog really because the Mr isn't really into d&m (deep and meaningful) conversation and  a chance to work on my photography (cause he was getting a bit sick of that too!) but it has taught me a MASSIVE amount of things.  I now try a huge amount of food, cooking, drinks that I otherwise would not have known about, I learnt about Montessori schools thus Miss almost 4 goes to one, crafting, photography, art, politics, etc.  It still amazes me what you all teach me everyday. 

What I'm getting at is I have more links.....see your excited about that aren't you........

A little bit of lana  Is a blog by an Aussie mum who started this wonderful company called Aromaplay which has non- toxic, gluten free, wonderfully natural play dough. Which the madam is getting for Christmas. She also has children with food sensitivities and is a passionate advocate for awareness of food issues with kids and is a wellness warrior.  Lana is one inspiring lady, I came across her via a face book friend, so if you have a second please jump over and check her out.

Taurus Rising is Kelly's blog.  I can't remember what her day job is - I think it is quite fancy with lots of big words - but she is the ultimate in green.  I think Kelly was actually the first person to ever follow my blog (and I will always be grateful !)so I have read about her for a long time.  She has three kids and wonderful husband and she can use every single part of everything for something! What she does with a duck is incredible.  She also has a business called the ethicurean which is reusable and recycled fruit & veg bags.  They are brilliant - I actually have a tote bag and a veg bag and the tote is used for most of my shopping (I live in a market/co - op kinda town) and actually doubles as a brilliant handbag - especially when you carry enough stuff around to survive a nuclear attack like I do.

These are just two of the great Aussie mums I have come across whilst blogging and there are so many more out there - if you get a chance have a click over and see what they are about.  I would love to hear what discoveries, inspiring people, interesting things you have all found in the blogosphere......

*Neither of these people asked me to write this nor even know about the post yet so it is not a paid advertisement*

Friendship is a funny thing

Friendship between children seems a little strange to me - I never know whether the Madam is meant to have heaps of friends or just a few - but I am hoping that there are some  that she keeps forever.  This is the little boy of a friend of mine.  He is wonderful.

We have known him since he was born - there is almost 2 years difference between the kids.  He is wild and funny and adores the Madam.  She tells people he will be her husband but feigns indifference when he is never know

Sunday love links

Well I have actually woke up today feeling a little inspired (or motivated you pick) so I am went off to take some new photos today - but first here is a list of my favourite things this week (in no particular order)......

Vic has made an absolutely stunning quilt - check it out here - this mama can do anything with all the amazing pieces she collects.

Tralalere! Have a look it will just make you happy

I think I would love to go to The School Of Life

I'm thinking about making these as the Madams birthday falls this week (so Halloween week)

I would love to try to cook a recipe from here - just have to decide which one

Enjoy these hopefully I will be back as soon as I have edited with a few more photos and a bucket load of inspiration!
