So brand new school year….brand new mum!!!
ARE YOU WITH ME???
CAN I GET A HELL YEAH??!!
Super efficient, highly organised and all that.
I will not forget a pe kit , a bake sale , a school trip.
I will be super mum!!!
Ok , ok , ok if you believe that you’ll believe owt! This is me we are talking about.
Of course that’s not going to happen and you know what ; I’m not even going to make those kind of promises this year. Not even to myself. It’d simply be setting myself up to fail and who wants that?
I do want to make a few little changes though. I want to improve a few things that will make this house run a little soother during term time.
Here they are:
1) My diary shall be utilised
I’m a stationery freak. Never happier then buying notebooks,pens and the like.
Come September I’ll always purchase a diary (or 4) I often use them until half term then get bored.
I do,however, think this is a resolution I can keep. I’m always scribbling away I may as well make it useful!
It may even help the co-parenting conundrum too if I know exactly what is going on and where anyone should be on any given day.
2) Meal Planning
I’ve resisted meal planning because I’m a contrary idiot. I think ‘ooo but what if chilli is down for Wednesday then I don’t fancy it that day!!’
See eating makes me happy. I’m worried about my dinner not being the joyous occasion it should be because I’ve been over organised.
However it’s got to be worth a try!
Guaranteed to save time and money and ridding myself of the ‘what shall we have for tea?’ dilemma everyday.
3) Utilise the laundry room
There are 5 of us in this family. The washing machine rarely gets a rest. Unfortunately I am a total pain in the arse for cluttering up the laundry room with stuff that isn’t laundry (recycling,shoes that no longer fit, stuff I’ll get around to giving to the charity shop eventually)
A highly efficient laundry room can be nothing short of a blessing and that’s precisely what I plan to make it!Lick of paint , bit of storage and it shall be a hive of efficiency!
See so it’s just little resolutions I have in place. I know my limitations.
They might just help this house run a little more smoothly.
I’ll let you know by Christmas!!
