Happy Easter

Kokedama and Plant Propagation Workshop ~ Simple Living Toowoomba

Once again our Simple Living Toowoomba group has an interesting workshop coming up on May 11th. We are having a break this month due to the school holidays so I am sure this upcoming workshop will be very popular.

Palm Free No Butter Soap

A few days ago I made some soap based on Jan Berry's palm-free, vegan, no butter soap recipe in her book Simple and Natural Soapmaking. I doubled the recipe and added mica for colouring and it didn't turn out too badly.

A Heritage Walk

When we visited relatives in Melbourne recently we stayed in the city and were surrounded by beautiful old Heritage listed buildings. So each day I would set off and wander around the city to have a look at them. It was easier for me to walk rather than find out which tram to catch although you can catch trams around the CBD for free which is great for tourists.

Back to the peace and quiet

On Thursday we arrived back from spending a week in the Melbourne CBD and it is so nice to be back to the peace and quiet of regional Queensland. I didn't realise how I missed hearing the birds in the garden here as the only birds I saw in the city were sparrows in the food halls (yes really) and seagulls in the fountain outside the National Gallery of Victoria. In hindsight it probably wasn't a good plan to spend the week in the city and if I ever visited Melbourne again I would be more adventurous and hop on a few trams out to the suburbs. The crowds on the streets there are quite daunting and you wouldn't dare to try and turn a corner in front of the tide of humanity crossing the roads from Flinders Street Station etc. as I am sure you would just be knocked over. I actually hid behind a post one day until it was safe to come out and change direction :-)
