A little about me and you, plus win a $150 Big W voucher

Today I am celebrating my 4th Blogiversary.  I can’t believe my blog has been running for 4 years, no way did I have an inkling that so many people will be following and getting a front seat view of how I run my household.

You know though, I get it, I love sitting and having a coffee and seeing what people are wearing, the shoes they chose to wear with their outfit, bag selection etc. My blog is like you are peeking through my kitchen window seeing what food I make my kids for dinner, how I organise the pantry and what load of washing I am hanging out today (its friday so it’s towels and gym gear LOL).  I remember sitting at playgroup one day asking the mums, ‘How do you keep on top of your washing?’ and ‘Miss 2 won’t sleep are you kids doing that?’ it was great to hear their response, but I wanted more.  I truly love being able to share all my experiences with you.

Below I have shared some more about me, but I would love to learn more about you. I would love if you don’t mind taking a few minutes to answer this survey, it will help me with the creation of future content and ideas.  As a thank you, you will have a chance to win a $150 Big W voucher, to spend on clothes, homewares, books etc!  Thank you for taking the time, I really do appreciate it x

I have been reading your blog every day on a few short weeks after you have started, I can’t believe that it has been 4 years. Thanks Kat for all you do, Happy Blog Birthday.

Katrina August 2, 2014 - 8:56 AM

It has passed so quickly hasn’t it, honestly doesn’t feel like 4 years, which I guess is a good thing!

Emily @ Have A Laugh On Me August 1, 2014 - 8:53 PM

Wow a very happy 4th blog birthday Kat. You are one of the originals for sure!

Love reading your blog each day. So nice to know there are quite a few of us organised souls out there. Keep up the good work

Sheridan Anne August 2, 2014 - 8:30 AM

Happy Blog Birthday Kat! As excited as you were to meet Peter Walsh is how excited I was to meet you at The Voices of 2014 kidspot Masterclass this year! Keep it going and don’t stop inspiring

Katrina August 2, 2014 - 8:54 AM

Naw thank you Sheridan that means so much, are you coming up to the Problogger conference at all??

Dr Sarah August 2, 2014 - 9:43 PM

Hi, Katrina! Just did your survey and noticed a couple of things:

1. SurveyMonkey doesn’t seem to register the answers in the ‘Other’ category, and told me I had to provide an answer to those questions even though I’d freetexted one. I had to pick the nearest choice from the tick-boxes as well as entering my answer in ‘Other’, because otherwise the survey wouldn’t let me progress. Those questions probably need a tick-box for the ‘Other’ option as well as a free-text section.

2. The choice you give for the ‘Where did you go for your holidays?’ question seems to assume everyone answering is from Australia. I don’t have a state! (I answered ‘Interstate’ since we travelled to a different country within the UK, which seemed to me to be the equivalent.)

Anyway, let me join in with saying thanks for the blog because I love the lists of tasks!

Katrina August 4, 2014 - 10:43 AM

Thank you for the feedback Sarah I really appreciate it. Thank you also for taking the time to fill in the survey, I appreciate it.

Congratulations, Kat!! Amazing to think how well you’ve done in just 4years. You’re an inspiration to me!

And we should have lunch together – that’s my favourite too!

Wow it’s so nice to get to know you a but more Kat. I absolutely love your blog and am not surprised at all how huge it is!!! Totally with you on the avocado, cheese and tomato sandwiches too. I’m a bit the same with books – I find I read so many books to the kids in my class that when I get home all I want to do is mindlessly flick through a magazine. Happy 4th blogaversary! xxx

Judy Cass August 6, 2014 - 3:58 AM

Thanks Kat for all your tips, my house is always clean and tidy due to following your household cleaning tips. Housework is no longer a chore.

Yvonne Bentley August 6, 2014 - 11:17 AM

Thank goodness you entered into my life, gave me some insight to tackle challengers each day. Because of you my house is organised even more. My friends think I am super woman. I was totally organised for Christmas as I had done everything and organised it all because of the spare time I had because of you. It will be hard to get back into it as I have been overseas on holidays for 5 months, no housework. At least I know I have a spotless house to come back too. Thanks for sharing all your personal information.I thought I was the only person who didn’t read books. So glad you are on my page. lol

Amanda Gorton August 8, 2014 - 5:32 AM

Happy Birthday for your blog!
Ive been following the de-cluttering challenge, I love how each day the task is so easily achievable that it really has helped get my home and life sorted. I look forward to many more. Thank you

Katrina August 8, 2014 - 11:39 AM

Ooh thank you Amanda! So happy that you are enjoying the posts and challenges.

KELLY WALTER August 14, 2014 - 10:14 AM

Well i am 30 years old, at the moment its just my lovely husband and a house fall of animals. (feels like a zoo sometimes)
I have just finished my volunteer job of 9 years working at an Animal Shelter.
And I am Happy 🙂 As long as your happy within yourself then you are happy all round

Katrina August 14, 2014 - 11:28 AM

Thats lovely Kelly. I agree with you, it takes more energy to be angry than it does to put a smile on your face and be happy!.:)
