Organisation….balance is the key!

This mess is stressing me out, can't we get more organised?

This mess is stressing me out, can’t we get more organised?


I am a firm believer that being organised can be a major contributor to our happiness. When we feel on top of things and that life is in order we have a sense of serenity and calmness. When we are in a state of disorder we can feel overwhelmed and overly stressed. Is organisation making your life enjoyable or on the flip side, too rigid and strict? Would those around you say that your life is: a mess; organized or too controlled? Continue reading

A change is as good as a holiday……..

I love my new toy!

I love my new toy!

Time for our first of the month reality check! A time where we take stock and be a little reflective…..

Ever heard that saying  “A change is as good as a holiday”?  Well I am a firm believer in this one.  I just came to the realisation that I have been doing a bit of Spring cleaning in my life lately and really enjoying the changes.   We can definitely improve our happiness by making a few changes in our life. We all have those annoying, niggly things in life that bother us, so why not change some of them, if you can? What can you change to make life a little smoother, less stressful, less annoying and more enjoyable? Continue reading

Are you organised???

Some days I have no idea how I get it all done???

Some days I have no idea how I get it all done???

Don’t know about you but I am not a fan of chaos/drama/running late and feeling overwhelmed? Being in the middle of disorganisation creates chaos.  We need to work on time management; making the most of our precious time and planning so that we can have lots of happy and fulfilling moments.

How to get motivated?

Just can't seem to get into it today????

Just can't seem to get into it today????

What do you do to get motivated??? When the housework can no longer be ignored; when the pile of work on your desk  is seeming to double itself overnight; when you realise that you have not exercised for the past week; when that bill pile is growing so big that it  looks like needs its own postcode? When you realise that you haven’t cooked a proper meal in 4 days?  What slaps you on the bum and says “Enough”?    Continue reading

“No” is not a dirty word

I just can't balance everything...I need time to myself.....

I just can't balance everything...I need time to myself.....

No is not a dirty word

Do you run out of hours in a day/week because you say Yes to
everything?  Do you have the disease to please? Does your name come up when anybody needs something or someone to help? Do you have too much on? Are you getting enough time for yourself?  Mostly importantly are you saying Yes but
thinking NO?  Continue reading

What’s for dinner tonight???

Dinner's ready!

Dinner's ready!

Are you happy with the way you eat?  Do you eat healthily?  Do you know what you’re having for dinner tonight?  What about dinner tomorrow night? Do you waste food and end up throwing out sad, wilted fruit and veg?  Be honest!  Are you going to pick up takeaway tonight? Are you going to pick up something from the supermarket…but go when you are starving and buy naughty things that you know you shouldn’t? Continue reading

When you walk into your house do you like what you see??

I have no idea how this mess got here????

I have no idea how this mess got here????

When you walk into your house do you like what you see??  No, I don’t mean do you see George Clooney/Halle Berry etc standing there to greet you with a cocktail in one hand and a cheeky look in their eye. I mean, is the inside of your house or each room pleasing to the eye?  Does the room make you feel relaxed and at home? Does it tell us something about you?  OR Do you cringe? Continue reading

Preparation is better than perspiration…….

  • Got the kids....now where did I put those bloody car keys????

    What’s a typical morning in your house? Screaming, yelling, piece of
    toast in one hand, searching for car keys and looking for that other bloody shoe, racing out the door stressed and in a sweat?????
    Or organised, smooth, everyone knows their jobs, car keys hanging on the car key hook and leaving the house kissing the hubby,
    patting the dog and looking forward to the day?????  Don’t know about you but I know which one I’d pick to start my day.  Why create stress when 10 minutes the night before arranging a few things
    or getting a routine going will solve all of that drama?
    Same goes for any time of the day when you feel the chaos tornado might strike. Preparation is better than perspiration.
    What things can you do to prepare to be more organised???  What works for you??  Some starting tips: have a place for things
    e.g. car keys and school notes; get out clothes/school uniforms the night before; have a shopping list and use it; pack school bags/
    handbag/briefcase the night before; have lunch made and in the fridge…Are you organised???? Could you do better??? What works for you??????????????? Let us know….give us some tips???
