I’m still relatively awkward at blogging at all, I struggle to see how other people would be interested in my life. But I have to remember that I do actually live a relatively alternative lifestyle, and it’s something that I’d really love other people to consider doing too.
This month as been pretty mad too frankly – I did a spree of markets, selling both my second hand belongings at a community market and some handmade ~witchy~ things at Perth’s combined coven’s market.
I’ve also had to leave my home due to unfortunate circumstances and am currently housesitting at my friends’ home. It’s kind of nice actually, living in a way that’s really different to how I usually do, living in spaces that are very different. I do miss all my beautiful pets though! There’s nothing better than fresh quail eggs and a tiny rabbit to snuggle. I’m even missing my semi ornamental hermit crab. I really hope they’re safe at the various homes they’re staying at.
Being without a fixed home is a bit of a trial for me, I really am a homebody and I enjoy nothing more than baking and gardening in my own space. I’m so lucky I have the support of the people around me to help me while I’m struggling. Thank you in particular to the friends who’ve given me their homes, and my mum who helped me pack and listened to me whine. Oh and her dog Max for keeping me loved.
Oh! I’m also working at an ice rink in the city and pretending that I’m on holidays. Yeah, I know it’s strange but it helps.
You’ll have to forgive me, I’m still a bit out of it. The one genuinely great thing is that it’s plastic free july! This means that a whole lot of normies who don’t live plastic free/or plastic reduced liftestyles take the plunge for a month and try not to use single use plastics, or plastics at all. I’m using it as a stepping stone towards getting back to zero waste. I’ve done it once before, last year, after being inspired by my wonderful ex-housemate Lauren. We’re planning a cute shopping trip to Perth’s only true Zero Waste store The Wasteless Pantry and having a plastic free dinner party. I think I might do a version of my zero waste cordial (recipe to come).
Here’s me, trying to blog still despite the flu and some dodgy mental health.
This month will be a good blog-heavy month. Stay tuned.
