Hello April

Hello Mondays is about sharing the thoughts and goals for the week ahead. Hello month is a sometimes approach to setting intentions to guide the month ahead.

Hello, new normal. 

COVID-19 has flipped the entire world upside down. We're all feeling the strangeness of these times, no matter where we are in the world. And we're all doing the best we can to make it through. Scary to think that just a few short weeks ago, life looked completely different. Interesting to watch how we unfold from this, and the lessons we will learn.

Hello, learning from home. 

Over the last couple of weeks, as schools across Australia closed before the holidays to allow teachers time to prep for term 2, the internet went into meltdown over "home schooling" But we are not home schooling our children if they're still enrolled in school, we are learning at home. And right now, it's end of term/school holidays.

Hello blogging. 

April feels like the perfect opportunity to jump start some writing. I might fall down in a big heap and fail, but I'm going to give it a red hot go while I have nothing else competing for my time.

Hello kids in the kitchen. 

With snacks and treats still short on the shelves, it's time to get the kids doing some baking. It usually ends up with arguments over whose turn it is, so I might have to create a roster and menu plan so everyone gets a turn each week at doing something. I feel I might regret this decision, though.

Hello journalling. 

I have wanted to start a journalling practice for years, but haven't made it a priority until this year. Every Sunday, as I'm setting up my bullet journal for the following week, I answer 3 simple questions about the week before. This helps me summarise the good and the challenges, and focus on what can be different the following week.

Hello decluttering. 

I listened to Decluttering at the Speed of Life last month on audiobooks. My brain exploded at the container concept, and I'm itching to get stuck into some decluttering around the house. I think we might actually get rid of a lot of stuff following this idea!

Hello April, a challenging month ahead for everyone.

  1. Waving! You sound positive and upbeat about making the best of the time ahead, which is great to hear. Ah, children in the kitchen - I remember it well :). (Mostly the mess!).
