Keep on Trucking!

I'm still going strong as a vegetarian! I'm suprised I don't feel more proud of myself, but to be honest it's felt fairly natural. My usual struggles over what to make for tea (and to get my ass off the couch!) remains and I really need to work on that!

My darling husband went cruelty free for my Christmas present. The sweetheart got me a vegan cookbook, a CD that I wanted and some yummy shower gel from The Body Shop.

I still plan to make the move to veganism but I have a LONG way to go before I can get there. I need to get back on my original path of fiding awesome and delicious meals to add to our rotation and eventually dairy can be eliminated from at least my own diet.

I read an interesting article online:

Very interesting, top five regrets of dying people:

"1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.

2. I wish I hadn't worked so hard.

3. I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings.

4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier. "

Definately worth reflecting on - no one is saying they wish they kept their bench cleaner or did their laundry more often ;) I want to focus on what is important. Happiness, energy and my children as well as doing my bit for the things I care about.

I FINALLY have a new car! I was on the verge of hippy craziness there for a while and was walking everywhere. I ws getting SO frustrated by the pram constantly getting punctures when we were farthest from home! I never noticed how much glass there is in my neighbourhood till I had to walk so much.

I certainly walk much more often now but I'm very much enjoying my car. It's a 1996 Toyota Estima - it has room for our tall, extended rearfacing car seats without compromising leg room in the front. It also has an extra row of seats in it that I can tether the dogs to, or fold down for extra boot space.

Catch up soon!
