Hello hello! How’s it going? We’re on Easter holiday mode here, so there’s a lot of juggling of childcare and work and life going on. So far we’ve managed to make it work and it has been fun! I’m taking a little time off next week from all things blogging so things will be a little quieter around here, but before I head off I’ve got ten things that I’ve read/seen this last fortnight that you might enjoy too.
1. I wrote a post for The Huffington Post this week asking if ethical clothing is expensive or have we just lost our sense of perspective?
2. Marie Kondo tells us to ditch joyless items, but where are we sending them?
3. Inspiring. A nine year old girl files a lawsuit against the Indian government for inaction against climate change. I wish I was that clued up when I was nine.
4. “Just be grateful for these moments. A crying baby is nothing compared to what’s to come”. A really lovely article on parenting. As a parent of a one year old and a five year old, life is hard and using the bathroom alone is something I haven’t experienced in a very long time, but this made me realise what’s ahead, and why I’m in the easy bit.
5. “For 18 years, I thought she was stealing my identity until I found her“. A fascinating story on racial justice.
7. Most new mums in America get 12 weeks unpaid maternity leave. American mothers are now turning to crowdfunding to allow them to have some maternity leave. Heartbreaking.
8. Our bread making goes through peaks and troughs. Right now it’s in a trough. Erin makes me want to get back on it with her post on making sourdough bread (and her photo of her beautiful bread at the top of this post).
10. All the heart eyes for this top*.
And three things from the Moral Fibres archive:
2. A handy vegetable planting calendar.
3. Got black bananas? Try making pancakes.
Until next time!
