While I didn't make any New Year's Resolution this year, I have decided that 2010 is the year I try to make life easier for myself. With 6 kids between 11 years and 11 weeks, a home based business, a house being renovated, and an ironing pile that is almost as high as I am, I am on the lookout for ways to simplify and organise everyday life. A fantastic start has been joining up with Aussie Farmers Direct. On a Tuesday and Friday, a milkman (I'm not being sexist - I have been awake feeding my little Tilly when he has arrived!) leaves milk, bread, eggs, cheese and juice on my doorstep in the middle of the night, and on a Thursday afternoon I get a big box bulging with fresh fruit and veg. With the money deducted straight from our account, and the ability to change or cancel an order online, the whole process couldn't be easier. Knowing that all the products come from Australian farmers or local businesses and are as fresh as can be is a huge bonus. This is going to save many late night trips to the service station when my hungry children have devoured their way through all the bread and milk in the house... Millie, however did you manage when your 5 boys were teenagers?!
