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!

all my life I have never found a four leaf clover, despite many hours as a child looking. my kids found all these four leaf clovers this afternoon

Packing for the problogger conference and must say I’m proud of my wardrobe choices, so much colour. First event I went to in Melbourne all my clothes were black.

Still feeling quite sick Fiona, which is terrible as we have such a busy weekend ahead. But yes, I have my coffee here too!

Wow those costumes look amazing Kat and I am impressed to see your daughter at the sewing machine and that you didn’t do it all for them, you are teaching them such great lesson at a young age, good on you.

She did so well, made the apron for her outfit all by herself, very proud moment.

How clever is your daughter on the sewing machine! And I love those book week costumes. I’m making a little trip to Typo today – totally love that shop! Mmm your iced milo looks very delicious for this warmer weather. Thanks for the great weekend catch up. PS – I love following you on instagram! xx

that milo frappe was delicious, was so nice on a sore throat! Yes I may have shed a tea at how confident she was on the sewing machine.
