Remember how I said I was going to write an ebook about our house cows?? Well I did write something (40 pages!) but then we kept having more experiences and I just kept adding to it. The past few weeks I've been reading back through it and trying to come to a final version. New experiences can go into future editions, I've just got to get this thing finished! I started another blog site to sell the ebook from - http://housecowebook.blogspot.com.au/ - there's not much there yet, and I'll tell you here when its ready, but its really is coming soon, I promise!

And finally, its time to think ahead to Plastic Free July. If you haven't done it before, check out their website and register, give it a go, you will be surprised by how much plastic you use and how easy it is to reduce your plastic waste. We will be joining in again and I'll be posting about how we reduce plastic all through July. If you want to start preparing, Madeleine at NZ Eco Chick has some great posts to get you started.
How was your May? What are you plans for June?
