Well, we are almost ‘back to school’ and is it just me or has this holiday absolutely flown by?! But now panic sets in.
Me, being so organised *cough* I now hit that point where I start to panic about what I have forgotten ready for the children returning to school. And then the panic of being able to get everything in time. Every year I swear I will be more organised but every year seems to pass in a blur of me being totally unorganised and I am constantly caught on the hop. And just to add to my panic, three of my brood of four will be in full-time school come September!
My excuse is that having four children makes for quite a hectic life but truthfully, I’m just not that organised! Life would probably be a lot easier if I could be though so on the recommendation of a lovely Twitter friend, I have bought myself an Organised Mum Life Book. It has stickers for the hairdressers and everything! And although it is still in its envelope somewhere, I do intend to be organised come September. Well, as organised as I can be *cough*
I know I can’t be the only one to forget to take back library books, make that dentist appointment, bring cakes in for the PTA but sometimes it feels like I am surrounded by uber-organised-mummies in the playground which just makes me look even worse! I just don’t know how they do it to be honest. But saying that, with my eleven year old going up to High School, and my four year old just starting out in Primary School, I will actually be with a whole new cohort come September, so maybe there is hope for me yet 😉
So come on you lovely lot, how do you do it? How do you get organised? All tips will be very greatly received, honestly!
