Things bought in advance, and no last minute cooking.
But there’s just one thing that used to cause me stress,
Paperwork and clearing my inbox, something I’d rather attend to a lot less.
Some piano students are able to practise regularly without much effort, while others struggle. Long term piano students who do well in piano lessons often excel in their studies. And some even have time for other hobbies.
This poem explores two important factors that give long term piano students their ability to do so much.
I tried kitchen waste composting at home for a year and gave up, when I realised my time composting was better spent changing our purchasing patterns so we buy grocery items loose, without plastic. This is a little effort, because dry fruits, grains, fruit and vegetable of a good quality often aren’t available at the same store. But it’s been worth it, as it’s cut our plastic waste quite a bit.
We started to dispose of our kitchen waste in home made garbage bags made out of newspaper. It’s really easy, convenient, and smell-free.
The end of this post has a link to a video that will teach you how to make these newspaper bags. Continue reading DIY : Plastic free garbage bags from newspaper
I’m generally not prone to feelings of sadness. Looking back, I realise that I have tended to stumble upon coping mechanisms at times of loss or when life gets difficult.

This phase of sadness usually lasts four days each year. I pull out papers – not a lot – this is the easy part. Then, I bravely open my email – which is so full of spam, advertisements, and constant reminders, that I can’t find any mails I really need. And that when panic hits!
You’ll know I’m having a bad day if you see me at the local coffee shop with my never fail solution, that helps me through this stressful time each year. Chocolate cake and hot cup of chai! Continue reading Piano practise tips to help me with annual income tax woes
Friends told us that moving to Kharghar cuts routine visits to the doctor! I didn’t really believe this when I heard about it, but it’s true!
When we’re not feeling too good. Just to be sure all is clear.
The doctor tells us to have some tests,
But we decide to try lifestyle changes, and a little rest.
