About me!

Hi there!

I'm Kara, a 40-something woman who enjoys making and doing; practical one might say!


 
We don't have a TV and so have lots of time in the evenings to have a go at all those things that I've always wanted to have a go at. I created this blog to share my success's and failures with like minded people who also like to experiment and give it a go rather than buy brand new or get someone to do it for you every time!

We are fairly "Planet Ark-y" as a friend of our recently complained - and are constantly looking for ways to reduce our impact on the environment, lower our bills and live a simpler life with less consumerism and ultimately - enjoy life!



The blog name comes partly from people often telling me, "Oh, you're so practical" and partly from our family name which has "frog" in it - my husband and my father-in-law both get called Froggy all the time - being a woman I guess that should make me a Frogg-ette, Frogg-ella or Frogg-ina!

I live on a large suburban block in Brisbane (but still don't seem to be able to grow veges despite all that room) although we do have chickens, worms, a cat, bee's, lots and lots of trees and fantastic neighbours!!

If you want to have a look around our back yard - the link is here.

I currently work three two part time jobs, am married, am attempting just got a uni degree online and in my spare time - enjoy blogging!

Thanks for dropping by!

Hi Kara

I enjoy reading your blog and noticed on you reading list the Affluenza book. I read it last year and found it enlightening and a bit scary.

I am currently conducting research into blogs that focus on sustainable living as part of my Masters at the University of New England, Australia. I am gathering information on the positive role that blogs play in inspiring people to live more sustainably.

We are looking for people to participate in a short survey ${l://SurveyLink} (5-10minutes), link below

If you could help that would be greatly appreciated.
