hello, back to school. Last Monday, Steve got notified of a roster change, to start on Tuesday. So all our plans for the weekend got thrown out the window, [yes, we've argued about how slack the company is, leaving everything to the last minute] and the kids have behaved awfully this weekend. I'll be glad when we can get stuck back into our full routine, and have some semblance of normal again.
hello, new planner. I love my bullet journal. But sometimes you have to be open to trying new things, so I'm spending the next couple of months using the Simple Scrapper* planner, in the hopes of being a little bit better about capturing stories and staying on top of life. And it's the best time of year to try new things, Christmas is only 81 sleeps away [come on, you knew I was going to mention it, didn't you?]
hello, music. I mentioned a few weeks ago that we've set up a stereo in the lounge room, and it's been wonderful listening to music again, but I've discovered that all our most recent songs are on iTunes! So I've been spending more time at the computer, fighting over headphones with Sophie, listening to music. My current favourites are "ghost town" by Adam Lambert and "fight song" by Rachel Platten
hello, Christmas card making. It's been a couple of years since I've actually sent Christmas cards. But this year, I'm going to be organised and ready by December 1. Because I love the process of making the cards, and imagining the smiles on everyone's faces when they get them. This week, I need to come up with a simple idea I can do quickly, in bulk, without buying too much stash to complete it.
hello, Monday, a new start every week.
