Weekend Catch up

It has been awhile since I have shared my life in photos.  Here is a catch up of what I have shared on Instagram since late December.  If you are on Instagram please follow along @theorganisedhousewife.

My birthday lunch. sadly I’m really sick today, feeling a bit miserable for birthday celebrating. hubby is making me a yummy salmon and avocado grill toastie to make my throat feel better, he spoils me. #birthdaylunch #toastie #salmon


Noms, Miss 11 made me a banana choc chip birthday cake, was so good!!


A beautiful birthday dinner with my family, comfort food homemade fried rice. Thank you The Remarkables Group for my flowers x

Just visited a friend and this swan was swimming in the pool, totally love it!! #swan #pool #inflatable.  I ‘need’ this swan in my pool, they are currently out of stock everywhere, waiting patiently for them to restock, available from here.


I’ve been baking, early for back to school all in the name if blogging!! I made my own tiered rack by using some glasses. don’t worry, it’s all stable. 


just spied these lunch boxes at @colessupermarketslooks like they would be big enough for Tupperware Sandwich Keeper Plus lunch boxes, only $8.

Happy Birthday! What a wonderful month of photos. I love the little touches in your office space to make it sweet and lovely but without over cluttering. The champagne slushie looked pretty good too!!!

Thank you Lisa!! That champagne slushie is so yummy!! I love my office, it has a different feel to the rest of the home, which is really nice considering we don’t have doors to shut it away 🙂

Hi Katrina,
Just wondering how you got the screen saver? ( Champagne Slushie pic )
I have the same computer and I’d love to do that on mine 🙂
