Weekend Catch Up #7

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.

you know your sick when…. last nights leftover were left on the kitchen bench overnight.  I did the dishes last night and left these on the bench to cool before putting in fridge, just forgot the put in fridge bit #dontfeelsoorganisednow


settling in to my Friday evening with a coffee and some strawberries and cream to put the finishing touches on a project I have been working on and can’t wait to share it with you. I am seriously so excited, been so hard to keep it quiet!!!


family affair at the hairdressers today getting ready for a photo shoot.


family photo time about to begin


the rain held out, this is such a pretty place on the Gold Coast Melissa Pratt Photography


freshly baked lemonade scones for morning tea with my BIL & SIL.  View recipe here.


big changes happening to this room tomorrow, moving furniture and reprinting wall back to original colour… then moving my office into this space over the weekend. I’m a wee but excited!!


saying goodbye to my gift wrapping station. will need to find a new home for it.


best brother in law ever!! let the changes begin. {TIP} don’t cover a dark wall with white tint need to add a little black to the white before covering with desired colour.


Finally got that glue from the fairy door off the wall by simply  using tea tree oil and an @ENJO_Australia fruit and veg cloth, the rough texture helped to pick up the glue.  I did have a desk here and when I moved the desk I didn’t realise some of the glue on the wall stuck to the desk and it removed some of the paint.  #tip #theorganisedhousewife #cleaning #fairydoor

Ha ha. Leftovers on the bench. I have so done that. Many times.

You wake up in the morning, start your coffee, turn around and there’s your bolognese.

Oh well, atleast the kitchen looks clean… for atleast another 5 minutes.

We do this all the time too so the dogs end up with it, I’m convinced they now distract me on purpose
