talk about neglect.

Well my poor blog baby has been left neglected for a while now, so much so that i missed the start of Blogtoberfest- which means that I'm out before i even tried.

So for the time wealthy people who continue to read my rantings, i would like to share some things i have learned in the last few weeks.

If a child says they have a saw tummy, and its the first thing in the morning, get a bucket.

Of any one asks you to be on a committee (of any kind) smile politely and run for the nearest exit.

any ways now that we have that out of the way, an update on the good things.

I am now part of a book clup- and although it is not the 'The Jane Austin book club' i am very much looking forward to regular intelligent conversation with adults.

I have also been trialing SLS and Paraben free body wash, shampoo, and conditioner in an attempt to rid some of the nasties from with in my home.  I started with Sukin- which are easy to get an Australian made and owned.  To be honest i didn't love them for my skin type- i have found the products i tried exaggerated my dry and sensitive skin symptoms.  Their products have been great for the kids.  I have switched to Moo Goo (Australian made and owned) for my body wash and shampoo and I'm sticking with the Sukin conditioner- so far so good.

If you are looking at switching to SLS, Paraben free, Australian made and owned products I would suggest buying the smallest amounts, or trying to get samples to trial to work out what is right for you before you are left with liters of the stuff.

Next thing to go from our house are toxic wipes once i can find a reliable source of bamboo SLS and paraben free wipes.  I will be going to the PBC expo in to hope to speak and deal directly with the manufacturer.

Next blog will have the info on Mei Tai's.
