A haphazard chronicle of one year with no new stuff!

One man's 'trash' is another's treasure
I've made a very exciting new discovery - Freecycle! This is an amazing online network devoted to the exchange of unwanted stuff within your local community. What a fantastic way to keep usable things out of landfill, and save a bit of money too. This has been a lifesaver for me with respect to my managing to blow up our stick blender for the SECOND time in a matter of weeks. This leaves me without the means to provide The Booba with pureed goodies, but according to the terms of my pledge a new one would be verboten. Thanks to Freecycle I've already located a replacement that was otherwise sitting unwanted in someone else's kitchen cupboard. Yay! Check out the link below.
I'm a 29 year old newish mother of one beautiful Booba navigating the transition from being a busy full-time professional to being a busy full-time baby entertainer, stylist, seamstress, chef, masseuse, personal attendant....at the same time as trying not to go insane and making a vague effort to think about and discuss something other than babies!
