It wasn’t too long ago I wrote about being unsure of the future of this blog. And while I still am, I would like to do a little catch up on my last few weeks in pictures. For ease of layout, these will be 3 big collages. I’ve also been thinking a lot about whether or not this blog should stay as it has been. In the past I have run Tuesday Tips and Things I Love Thursday as well as opinion pieces. Well, all my opinions are residing over on KiKi & Tea now, so perhaps this should just be stories about my life…

Today’s Tip: Organise your house, and organise your mind.

It’s really hard to think clearly when you’re living in clutter. At least I find it is. For me, when there’s crap everywhere it’s a bit like it’s actually pressing down on me, and I find it occupying space in the back of my mind I could use for other things.

A fairly ironic thought when you consider that I’m about as tidy as a bull in a china shop but it’s true, nonetheless. So last weekend when Husband & I finished putting up the shelves I started with my brother & dad previously, it was with a great sense of relief. We then set about clearing some of the boxes cluttering the garage and filling up those shelves. Just having things in a place made me feel soooo much better.

My garage "Before"... I know, scary right?

After! Doesn't it look great?

An organised house is an organised mind.

This past week started out incredibly sadly with the news my mother’s much loved cat, Kosi, passed away. He was found on Friday evening and had been missing for 5 days. I’m really hoping that will be the end of the crap things happening in my life. So, as we near the end of the another week, I’m hoping for good things on the horizon.

I’m excited today, specifically, as I’ve just an hour ago hit Publish on the first ever competition on KiKi & Tea! Celebrating our half-birthday with the chance to win a $100 Kuerida jewellery voucher.

I also wrote about how my wheels have fallen off, and I don’t think I care anymore.

This week has been my first week in my new role. Lots of learning, although some of it I already know which is good. I decided this week would be the week for everything to go well, so I started it with spring cleaning on Sunday. Fairly unusual for me, I will admit, but the results have made me so happy coming home! But I’ll get to that later… on to the week in pics!

Breakfast on Saturday morning

It’s been another week and a hectic one for me. My replacement started in my job so I spent half the week training her and the other half feeling like there must be something I’d forgotten. I start my new role on Monday and I’m excited but feeling a bit stupid because there are things I don’t know… and I must know all the things!

Really sad as I write this due to a sweater malfunction which I’ll explain when we get there… on to the week in pics.

On Saturday while Husband was getting ready for work I went downstairs. Suddenly I realise everything is off. I go back upstairs, everything has gone off there too. This was 9:15am. When we got to 10:30am and I still had no more power (Husband had gone to work) I walked to the shops and had breakfast out on my own. This was a big thing for me, you can read about it here.

This would be my perfect office

This Thursday, I love… reorganising.

Let’s be honest here, I’m a few fries short of a happy meal. So I will freely admit that sometimes the things I love aren’t entirely logical, and might piss other people off. But I can’t help myself! It’s my nature! I just love reorganising!!

Contrary to popular belief, I don’t hugely like organising. And I really hate putting a bunch of stuff away into a room that’s completely clear of stuff because I really believe my ideal house would be one with nothing but a bed, a sofa and television. Completely and totally clear of everything else. But once there is stuff there’s nothing I love more than throwing most of it out and reorganising everything into a perfectly organised nirvana.

It’s been a hectic week for me at work so I have to admit I haven’t had a lot of time for anything else. So just a quick one from me this week.

Started the week at a cafe as usual. I thought the reflections in the water were pretty.

Right, so this week’s post is a bit later than usual, but for two very good reasons. LOTS of pics to get through this week, so let’s get going!!

First up we visited Husband’s parents for a few days and we took Bella (aka The Nervous Pooper).

Bella thinks lunch is for her too
