Changes and Challenges

This blog has been neglected.

This is sad, and I am going to give it some love. I am also setting myself a challenge, and this may just give me the motivation to follow through with it.

So here’s the back story.

I am making radical life changes. Like, completely shifting most of the things that currently define my day-to-day life.
I am leaving uni, my family, my home of 21 years and my friends, and travelling around Australia. I might be gone one month, six months or more, and I have no intention of attaching a timeline to what I am hoping will be a journey of self-dicovery. I am also leaving in one month.

So what has this got to do with gardens, cooking and craft?

Basically, I don’t have a lot of money. I have sufficient savings to start travelling, but in the mean time, I am pretty much living on $132.16. This is an issue, because I don’t think that will get me very far this next month.

So what has this got to do with gardens, cooking and craft?

I am determined to make some money at a market, selling bread, baked goodies, or something crafty. This is something that I’ve been wanting to do for a very long time, and now seems the perfect time to make it happen. I don’t have a job, therefore any income – so any cash I can make from other means would be very welcome, and at the moment this is the only means I can think of. Busking is not an option.

So there are two markets I’m thinking of. Uraidla – first and third Sunday of the month, and Verdun – second Sunday of the month.

But what can I sell?

Tonight’s challenge is to attempt (and hopefully master) vegan cinnamon scrolls.

I shall be reporting back either elated at my success, or utterly despondent.

To be continued…

  1. This sounds like such a positive move for you, and so exciting! If you make it to Sydney sometime (that isn’t between December and the start of March) I’ll take you camping at my favourite spot.
