My Baby is here – Why I have been absent

by Victoria on October 29, 2012

My God…

What an emotional roller-coaster it has been the last 10 days.

I went to the hospital 9:30am on Thursday 18th October for a scan and by 2:26pm – I had a baby boy.

He was born at 27 weeks and 3 days so almost 3 months early but he is doing so well. Of course, he is in intensive care and will be until his due date so I am visiting him every day.

I will try and come up with some regular posts but please bear with me during this time.

Love you all

Making a start on the home organisation binder

by Victoria on October 1, 2012

First things first….. over the weekend I purchased a folder, some dividers and some punched pockets so now I can officially make a start on my home organisation binder.

I want to make this a place where I can turn to everyday and find out what should have been done, needs to be completed and so forth.

But I also want to make it pretty, so that every time I pick it up – it will make me smile.

Anyway, sorry this post is mighty short but I must dash or I’m going to be late for some work that needs doing (see how unorganised I am, I should have had this post planned, now you know why I need to get some organisation in my life)

I will let you know how the binder turns out, but for now, catch you later guys…..

Now lets party… that’s what we are here for, right?

I think I need a home organisation binder…!!

by Victoria on September 26, 2012

I have been thinking for a while now how much I need organisation for my home, and my idea is to create a home organisation binder…..

I have seen a brilliant example at Finding Home and I think with a baby on the way it might be better to get organised now rather than try after the birth.

The recipe I use;

1 cup grated olive oil soap ( I grate my own from a solid bar)
1/2 cup soda crystals (washing soda)
8 litres of water
