In the thick of school holidays


I’m living the dream here. You too? This keeps them happy though, so what am I supposed to do? Ha!

I’m not ready to go back to the school routine next week though. That’s an even busier time for us. I have kids at different schools and they play a lot of sport in different teams so then I am never out of the car. I quite like having the boys at home, but it’s certainly a different kind of busy around here at the moment. A messy busy!

But, I wouldn’t mind a break from the little angels. I have one child who isn’t sleeping at all at the moment (although last night was a bit better – see my instagram for the ongoing battle). We’ve all been there though! I even resorted to worming everyone (including the dogs). Gotta do what you’ve gotta do.

We’ve done just about everything there is to do – bowling, movies, laser tag… Yesterday I rang my sister-in-law and said can we please throw the kids in laser tag for an hour so we can go and eat some cake? I needed a serious sugar hit because I was so foul that you couldn’t even look at me. It did the trick though. 😉

My husband is taking the kids camping on the weekend and I am quite excited. The only thing I’ve been wanting to do is pull my wardrobe apart. I want to halve it. Seriously. I am going to attempt to halve my clothes. To tell you the truth I probably only wear a quarter of what’s in there. So that’s my mission.

Oh, and this is pretty exciting… I’m working with Aussie and YOU could win a $20,000 room makeover with me!! To enter just select the interior style in the colours you love and fill in your details here. I could be heading to your house in a few months to help you transform an entire room.

Even while the chaos of school holidays is going on around me I am still trying to work. It’s hard to stay focused when the fridge door is being slammed shut 40 times a day. Oh the bread and milk in my house…. outta control!

The thing I look forward to at the end of the day is a good dose of Nashville. That’s got me big time at the moment. Have you watched it?

Rightio, I’m off. Got to get some serious real-life stuff done before the kiddies get up and ask me “what can we do today?”.

    i pack what ever season I don’t need out of eyesight to simplify and declutter so I don’t feel like I have heaps of clothes but nothing to wear!

      I don’t seem to have enough room in my house to put the off season stuff away – I wish I did as it’s a good idea 🙂

    Just a heads up. My 26 year old still lives at home and still has Lego. Difference is he now buys his own and the boxes just get bigger & bigger and more frequent. He tells me it will be worth a fortune one day. I say – Use that fortune to buy a house big enough for all that Lego…

    Hi Katrina, I thought I read ages ago that you said this rug was from Kmart? just thought I’d double check as I’ve never seen it there & check pretty regularly. Thank you ????
