Hello. My husband got me this blog. I’m not sure why. Actually – I do. The domain name is grumpywife.com. He seems to think I’m grumpy all the time. I don’t think I am. I ask him to do work around the house, he doesn’t. He buys me this blog instead. I think it’s a blessing in disguise. I’ve been thinking about what I can include in this blog and there’s heaps to say. And by heaps I mean a LOT! I am a 30-something year old Aussie living in a regional city. I used to follow and enjoy reading blogs – blogs that were organic in content and was mainly full of youthful women wearing different fashions, with the women commenting on where they sourced the clothes from. Most of the clothes were affordable, even sourced from op shops, which I found refreshing considering I buy a lot of recycled clothing. But then I’ve noticed the blogs slowly but surely evolve into a something more commercial, with high fashion companies sending the bloggers clothes to wear in their posts – clothes that are so expensive that not the average wage owners could even dream about having. I became despondent with the blogs and their creators. And for that very reason I want to write a blog that is written by the humble Aussie on a humble wage. What I find works and what doesn’t work in all aspects of life – health, beauty, nutrition and shopping. Where YOU can read the blog and perhaps feel as though you can afford the things I type about. I am not a hippie by any standards – I would like to think I live my life as naturally as possible and look after myself to some degree. I have never been to a gym. I do exercise. I eat healthily. I eat junk food every so often. I work full-time. I do not desire to have any children. I would like to think that I could exist for lengthy periods of time without talking to a single person. I enjoy my own solitude. I enjoy having breakfasts in retro cafes with friends. I mostly don’t like social scenes. I am not a hermit. Most of these things I intend to elaborate in future posts. I can’t give everything away from the first post! Please stay with me…. lots more to come!
