I came off a midnight shift last night and slept in until 9.30am. Unheard of for me to sleep in that late but good, because I need the rest. I have learnt never to plan anything on my day off after a midnight shift. NO appointments, no meeting with friends, no large cooking days. Having said that we bought some mangoes from a farm up north on the weekend that needed to be cooked so I soldiered on and made these mango and pineapple chutney with Kensington Mangoes. I still have a bowl full of R2E2 mangoes all cut up ready to cook so I will just have lunch and get my second wind and cook them too.
Continuing my showcase of the Tea shop we visited at Mt Tambourine in January. Here is another set of that tiny tea set that is even tinier than the one behind it that I showed before. My finger is there for size comparison.

I was just listening to radio 612 while I was making my chutney and heard a wonderful programme about decluttering and living simply. They told about not buying anything other than food and necessities like replacing clothes etc, for a year to see how you feel, because I must admit most or some of us buy for comfort.
Another segment was about giving away one thing a day for a year from your house to declutter, one lady gave it to the thrift store.
I am going to embark on these two above and try and live simply like Rhonda below. Why dont you join me and lets make a promise to ourselves.
I follow a blog of Rhonda Hetzel who lives on the Sunshine Coast who has a wonderful blog called Down To Earth. I am learning towards living simply.
