Weekend Catch Up #2

Weekend Catch up

Thank you all for your lovely feedback from last weeks first Weekend Catch Up post, I will certainly continue sharing them with you!

From the recent survey that so many of you kindly filled out (thank you), I learnt that quite a few members of the community do not follow The Organised Housewife on Facebook and Instagram.  I share old posts on facebook and share a more personal side of me via photos on Instagram.  Because you are missing out on this I thought I would create a weekend catch up post each week so you can keep up to date.  Follow along on Instagram

I don’t want to be too repetitive and share the daily tasks and quotes as these are published in the daily newsletter and I share a monthly wrap of both these on the blog.

getting the twins ready for camp this week – 4 days away. little toiletries bottles are from ikea.


confession time…. I’ve never cooked a roast pork, until today. inspired by this weeks episode of #jamieoliver and his pulled pork left overs. 


The twins left on a 4 day camp this morning, they were so excited both left smiling… me on the other hand a blubbering mess, how embarrassing. However… I get to spend some one on one quality time with Miss 9, strange having one child as I’ve only ever had 2 and then 3.


{GIVEAWAY} On the blog yesterday I shared how a simple hello can brighten somebody’s day, we far too often hide behind our smile and laughter when really we may need a chat with a friend or time out from the busy-ness of life.

IMG_3072Miss 9’s favourite hairstyle at the moment is the braid down the side of her face as she has quite a few wispy bits of hair.


miss 9 and I just bumped into Donna Hay at Domayne Bundall. Miss 11 will be devastated she missed out as Donna is our absolute favorite food guru!! She was so lovely and was such a pleasure to meet her!! we even got our most favorite cookbook signed!
