Mid-month, so that means it’s time to find out exactly how much money I made on Amazon last month! Unfortunately it wasn’t a triple figure month, this month. I need another new release, me thinks.

Just very busy… Or maybe that was only the second half of the year.. Some achievements for the… Continue reading End of the year!
Following on from my previous post on developing a more frugal and simple life… I was thinking about areas we could improve, and areas where we’ve done relatively all right over the past twelve and a bit months since moving back to Melbourne.
