2009 in review

As a couple of bloggers we have been slack, the last update here was a while ago.

In our everyday <non digital> life we have been productive. As a review of 2009 here are just some of the things we have achieved:

1) We are living more sustainably.

This probably needs more clarification, there’s the free range ham, free range chicken, and now free range eggs, we’ve cut down on the amount of meat we eat, we have a rain water tank, and a small raised vege garden.

2. After the hire purchase of the imac we have severely curtailed our spending and as yet have not incurred any additional debt!

3. We have successfully cut down the amount of tv we watch, now we either hire it from the library or watch it on the internet.

4. On a personal note i ran a half marathon, almost got in touch with my long lost father, got an ‘A’ average in my first year of the bachelor of business, and survived another Christmas holiday with the inlaws…

5. There was a 4 and 2 year old birthday party to celebrate, a 35 and a 38 too.

6. Ej has been getting into home economics, and has managed to produce some of the most remarkable cakes, biscuits, preserves chutneys and sauces all without added preservatives and colours. Almost certainly we will not have store bought biscuits in our house anymore.

I’m the sort of person that does not celebrate my successes, so i have probably missed a few out, but i’m sure Ej will add to the list.

bring on 2010!
