October is the month for giving up for many but........

But I like to be different!

Its the 1st of October and I am not giving up any foods, drinks, I don't smoke, so what can I do to mark this wonderful month?
It is truly wonderful as my oldest son Max was born in October and this Sunday he will be entering double figures.

I have decided to put aside some time in the evenings for you dear blog.
I enjoy blogging, I am just not very good at it, not very good at organising my life either at times, so this month is the month I start to become more organised.

I have started working and am really enjoying it, but I will be honest, as I am not super organised, my own home is suffering slightly, mornings are stressful to say the least, getting all four children up dressed and ready for school with packed lunches is not easy.
I always leave things to the last minute, but need to change.

I am going to draw up a family plan.
I think it is about time my children realised they need to help, for our family to run smoothly. They can empty the car of their bags and pack lunch boxes, then we won't spend time searching for them on a school morning.
One of them can set the table another can clear it, they then can take it in turns.

I have so many things to organise, but apart from dedicating some time and posts for you my blog, I have Max's 10th Birthday celebrations to think about and decide how best we can celebrate it.


  1. I like the idea of a Family Plan... I should do one too x

  2. The family plan is a fab idea. I think it's important for the kids to help out even with the smallest of chores x

  3. the idea of the family plan is great, may have to borrow x

  4. I always leave things to the last minute too :/ never good
