Hello Monday

hello, last week of holidays The first day of school is so close now, but we're nowhere near ready. I haven't even shopped for shoes yet, let alone books or anything else that might be needed. It's been a slack holiday, but oh so needed.

hello, bedroom cleaning I can't put it off any more, Natalie and Riley need to get their room sorted and tidy, ready for the new school year. That means getting rid of the floordrobe, putting away old school books, finding places for toys, and most of all mum needs to help them. We've battled too long over the holidays to just let it keep going into the new school year.

hello, biannual blogathon bash This is a fun little challenge that runs twice a year, where you spend 3 days focusing on activities for your blog. I've followed along a few times in the past, but never really participated, but this year I decided to set a challenge. Check back 8am EST Friday (11pm AEST) to see what it is.

hello, Presto We've had cable tv for a long time, but in the last 6 months streaming tv has come to Australia. We've wavered about joining, but when our cable company offered free access to Presto for a year, we decided to try it. Our internet isn't up to much if the kids are on their gadgets, but I started watching Heroes, and 4 episodes in I am hooked.

hello, newsletter With the kids almost back to school next week, I'm kicking off the Hello Monday newsletter again. It will go out Sunday nights my time, so it's waiting, sparkling in your inbox on Monday mornings. Sign up here

hello, Monday, a new start every week

linking up with Kirsty, Eva and Alicia


  1. I'm knee deep packing the house up this Monday, hoping that everything turns out for the better in the end. Have a great week!

    1. I'm sure everything will work out the way it's supposed to. Good luck finding a place!

  2. I have done done a bedroom blits with all the kids. Love a cool looking room

  3. OOh I've never heard of this blogathon, will have to have a look. And I do not envy people with school kids and all that needs to be organised! Good luck!

  4. I haven't quite finished school shopping yet either. I think with Paul being on an extra 2 weeks holiday it has thrown my routine out a bit!

  5. What's the blogathon all about? Sounds interesting!

  6. We're school shopping tomorrow. For all three. Hold me...

  7. I sure do hope that you get to do what you plan to...before "you know what" goes back! Yikes, it IS this time next week...almost. Cheers, Denyse

  8. I am so looking forward to school starting back, but am in no way ready! A bit nervous too, as have two kids to get ready and two drop-offs. Once we get into our groove it will be fine.
    The blogathon site looks great! I've put it in my favourites!

  9. You'll have to let me know what you think of Presto, we have Netflix but only watch the movies

  10. Hope you're having a great week Cate. I've never heard the term floordrobe before, but I think I've seen it in a few teenager's room. LOL
