An exciting step forward for The Organised Housewife

A few months ago my blog had a set back, on this day I realised a few things, whilst this blog is my full time job and is a business I wasn’t treating it like so which sadly saw some vulnerabilities.  I couldn’t keep up with emails and my ideas and plans for the blogs future were not being actioned.  My big vision for the blog was being stalled by my own thinking and mindset, “I’m just a blogger I should be able to do it all myself”.  You all know I absolutely and truly love writing The Organised Housewife, this setback broke my heart but in many ways made me stronger and to start thinking constructively about the future for the blog.  I am over the moon and so proudly excited to tell you I have taken a big step forward for The Organised Housewife, I have hired an assistant!!

I would like to introduce you to Kate (yes that’s going to be confusing Kat and Kate).  Kate is a mum of 2, Miss 11 and Mr 8, she has very similar values to me in how we raise our kids and run the household.  Kate will be helping me to keep up with my emails, reply to comments on the blog and facebook.  At this stage she is helping for a few short hours each week, but as the blog grows I look forward to the day of being able to have her here longer.  As always I thank you all, this beautiful community, for your support.

Please join me in welcoming Kate

Hello, I’m Kate. I’m really excited to be working along side Kat and help her achieve the many dreams she has for The Organised Housewife. I have been a long time reader and enjoyed learning great tips, I love all the yummy recipes and my family love them! A little about me… I enjoy spending weekends with my family at the beach. We love to go away “glamping” (I know Kat’s not a camping faFn so i can share all my great tips with you) I also love to read and keep fit.

Hi Kat and Kate

I often wondered how you cope with doing all you do and never seem to tire from it. I love all your hints, receipes, advice, and comments. It is great to have a reply especially as your blog has grown so much. Some days I am overwhelmed by all I have to do and feel physically drained. But you are my energiser bunny you keep on going, so it makes me want to keep going as well.

Welcome Kate, looking forward to getting another perspective of things as well. Maybe you could be called K1 AND K2 lol.

That is great news Katrina! Welcome Kate ????. So many great ideas on this blog. I went to Ikea for the first time yesterday and loved it. Your Kia bedroom makeover inspired me to start organising a better space for my family to play and relax. Thanks and thanks again ????

Thanks for all the helpful tips, Kat. I am no “spring chicken” but I love your daily tasks…. As we get older and the family leave home we sometimes find ourselves with way to much accumulated stuff. I am in the process of decluttering, and giving as much away to charity as I possibly can, in the meantime the daily tasks help to keep me on top of the ordinary housework, great reminders for the little things that we sometimes forget to do!! Welcome to your offsider Kate too. Keep up your great work you are truly appreciated. xxx
