Things I know this week

I know Friday’s the day I link up with Shae from Yay for Home !

I know I didn’t cope as well as I expected for the 5 days The Man was away. Usually life is easier with one less male around. Not this time!

I know at times I was a bit unreasonable with the kids. I hope the visage of screaming-banshee-mother is not permanently imprinted on their psyche.

I know my diet went out the window. I wish there was a pill you could pop for stress-eating. One for motivation & self-control would be good, too.

I know I’m hopelessly in love with the beautiful scarf the divine Lou Lou brought back from Paris for me.

I know the boys are loving their Paris tee’s and Harrods bears, too. Spoilt!

I know I’m irrationally nervous about the Wilful One’s Prep interview next Tuesday. Especially since it’s for a school that I’m hoping we don’t have to send him to.

I know toilet training Bam Bam is every bit as painful as I anticipated it to be. That kid has no respect for hygiene.

I know I’m so glad to be on holidays!!!

I know I’m feeling pretty darn virtuous for planning out my 5 weeks of holidays and scheduling all my to-do’s. I’ve scheduled long overdue catch ups, assigned weeks for household de-cluttering tasks and listed all the odd jobs I need to do. I’ve even allocated days for writing blog posts!

I know I needed to do this otherwise I run the risk of spending 5 weeks sitting front of the computer in my PJ’s as a result of  feeling completely overwhelmed by all the things I want to achieve and the Procrastination Gene will kick in big time. And that is NOT going to happen!

Do you need to organise yourself with schedules and lists like me?



  1. i once won a box of toys in the christmas raffle at my preschool and my parents gave all but one away to children in need. one could argue it was a good lesson to learn, but oh the injustice of it all in the mind of a 3 year old! xx

    • Ooh harsh! I feel like a meanie making my nearly 5 year old helping me cull his unused toys & he agrees that it’s a good idea!! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  2. Gorgeous scarf. I am finding that the less decisions I need to make on the run the better, so my life is becoming very planned.

    Have a great time in Melbourne.

  3. I love that scarf!

    I know exactly what you mean – I’m finding that planning is becoming essential these days. It’s so easy to become overwhelmed. Good luck!

  4. I think I need to do that in the school holidays too. Although my kids not getting sick would be a good start into helping me get a few things done around here. When are you off to Melbourne?

  5. That is a beautiful scarf!
