Before Our Time

Just discovered this lovely blog via here. Really ties in with a discussion we seem to be having 'round our way. About the economic downturn - about 'what is the simpler life?'. About what it means to mother, father, wife, husband, woman and man. About the lives we choose to create for ourselves. About how much of it is a ticket for a train we feel we have to board rather than to choose to let it leave the station without us. There is some lovely food for thought going on at Before Our Time - with their recent post being up my alley ... 'Crafting our way out of economic tough times is an idea from Before Our Time' ... plus they are having a giveaway ... incentive hey?

hi thanks for dropping by, I'm so glad you did, loving having a look around your blog!! Your banner photo is wonderful!!!Hubby bought me Real living just this week!! It's pretty cool too! I think he bought me the very first issue but I haven't bought it since as I really try not to buy many mags unless they are from the op shop (especially if I have a sub going like I do with Inside Out!!!)

I just found your blog via a comment you left on mine and aren't I glad I did! Am very impressed you did a stocktake of all those 'hats' you were wearing and made some tough decisions. Finally the penny dropped and I realise I am no doubt in for a similar scenario!
