taking a break!

By Mrs Green | April 3, 2008

My brain is overloaded! Do you ever have times when you feel really overwhelmed with everything? I feel like that at the moment and I’m noticing those first spiralling motions of depression. Better to nip it in the bud and not allow it to take its grip……..

My Buy nothing, cut the crap and spring clean challenges

By Mrs Green | April 1, 2008

Now this I love. I love it when I have an idea to do something and find people across the world thinking the exact same thing.

Just a quick post from me today. The weather is dragging me from my computer at the moment – yipee!
