Introducing Alisha Small-Town-Mumma

Well here I am finally writing a blog, having thought about creating one for months.

I guess most of the credit should go to Sasha over at Inked in Colour  (, whom I've followed for a few months and find truly inspirational. So a big thank-you to Sasha at Inked In Colour for inspiring me to start this blog. 

I'll start by introducing myself and what I hope to acheive with my blog. 

I grew up in the Sunshine Coast hinterland on my parents 20-acre hobby farm. My dad is a hippy/anarchist from the 70/80s, my mum is a very out-doorsy/do-it-yourself/hard-working person. Their attitudes, combined with taking my brother and I to the Woodford Folk Festival every year since 1994, have given me an interest in the environment and a passion for wanting to create a better world. 

In the years since high school ended, I've finished a university degree, made the most beautiful friends, and travelled extensively through Europe and Asia.

These days, I'm a Mumma to my amazing almost 2-year old daught, who calls herself "Gi-Gi". I've recently become a single mum and am still trying to find my feet, whilst creating a new life for myself and my daughter. 

I have recently moved back to my hometown and into the sanctuary of my parents home, the home that I grew up in.

The main aim of my blog is a record of my progress as I pick up the pieces of my broken life and figure out where to from here. I also want to connect via the online-world with others and form friendships, as I'm geographically isolated from my 'real-world' friends.

From here, my main 'life-plan' is to journey into the world of Community Exchange, Permiculture, Sustainable Living and Living Simply, not to mention trying to continue with my green/relaxed parenting methods. 

So let the blogging begin.....
