Living life simply and taking joy in the small things is a fairly central tenant of our family life.  Today we were honoured to be featured in a story in The Daily Telegraph all about the quest for sustainability and how a lot of mums wish for "an old fashioned simple life". The journalist, Lisa Power, From The Daily Telegraph, said that I should be held up as someone who has achieved that. It was very flattering.  

She emailed me after the interview and said "You have a great life!"  ...I know I do and I am very grateful for it.  If you want to read the full article it was on page 4 (!!) of today's Daily Telegraph or you can find it here online.

We are big believers in DIY and take pleasure and joy in doing as much for ourselves as we can. I love the quotes Lisa included from our conversation about finding joy from putting in a good effort and doing things yourself rather than just taking the sometimes easier option of buying something new or ordering take away or outsourcing tasks.
