Weekend Catch up #5

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Weekend Catch up

From the recent survey that so many of you kindly filled out (thank you), I learnt that quite of  few members of this community do not follow The Organised Housewife on Facebook and Instagram.  I ask a variety of questions 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.

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.

It’s been a quite week on the photo front as I have been super busy sitting at the computer all week working on something extra extra special for you all, I will be launching it very soon, I can’t wait!
