my pledge :)

I've decided that it's about time I really put more effort into trying to live the life I really want to live, a healthier, peaceful, slower and greener kind.

So here goes...
To play with my DS as much as possible, that few minutes extra wont be there forever and before I know it he'll be all grown up.
Turn the tv off (I'd like to get rid of it altogether but Im a bit outnumbered by 4 teenagers, hmm well slowly does it :) ).
To plan meals and buy more wholefoods, fairtrade and organic.
Reflect on and change my world for the better.
Stop hurrying and enjoy simple pleasures and joys.
Read more (erm..if possible!)
Learn to knit.
When we move house, grow our own veg and herbs.

There's probably a whole list of other things too but to be honest Im shattered right now, I think Im coming down with a virus courtessy of my dd who is just getting over a nasty bout of glandular fever. Anyway, Charlie is having a little nap and I'm of for a cup of something herbal and a nice quiet read, while I can.

Yes, we're slowly and surely de cluttering too, I think I'll feel calmer in a clutter free home....I hope :)
