Week in the Life 2017

Posted on

It starts today. This year I’ll be collecting photos and stories in Collect, sharing here and possibly scrapping and adding to my Awesome Ladies album.

This is my fifth year documenting Week in the Life on my and you can check out my previous years’’ Week in the Life posts here. And I just realised that I need to go back and add photos back to some of the earlier posts :/ Oh well another project to add to the list



How I’m scrapping in 2017

Posted on

December flew by in such a rush and we went away on holiday so I didn’t scrap a thing all month!

My word of the year for 2017 is me so I’m making sure I take more time for me and the things I love, which includes scrapbooking.

This year I plan to…

  • create a photo book of our holiday using the Project Life app and most likely printing it through Snapfish.
  • finish our 2016 Journal Your Christmas pages. Keeping it very simple this year so I get it done.
  • create a year of me album – not sure what it will include as yet but it’s my Awesome Ladies Project for the year
  • keep up to date with the girls albums. Simplify this year. Use up the supplies I have. Print photos and journal each month. Get it done, not perfect.
  • Day in the Life & Week in the Life. Thinking of doing these digitally and printing them. I did this for Day in the Life in 2016 and it worked well so I might try it for Week in the Life too.
  • possibly other projects that I have on the backburner or that spark my interest

I’m part of the Awesome Ladies team again this year. Things are a little different this year and I’d love it if you join us over at the new website and community.

So that’s my plans for 2017 in a nutshell. What are your plans?

Managed a sleep in. Slow morning, breakfast and the Sunday Footy Show. Miss A spent time playing in the bedroom. I stripped our bed and tried to find the cat smell 🙁 Time for some pumpkin soup for lunch. The girls helped dad mow the front lawn before it bucketed down. Visited Grandma & Grandad.

Back home again and Miss K and I folded her washing and put it away before cooking mini lamb roasts for tea. Fluffy hot chocolates for all then showers. Bedtime for Miss A & she was out like a light in 15 minutes. The Eurovision finals once Miss K headed to bed. Got stuck into some school baking and a sneaky Choc Raspberry Brownie. Made our bed then headed off to sleep.

Thanks for reading along this week. I’ll hopefully get a start on my album soon, unlike last year which is still to be done :/

A slight sleep in. Bagged up some sheets and old doonas to donate to a family who lost everything in a house fire recently. Miss A in her new beanie and gloves from Grandma. 11:11.
Walking back to the car after soccer. They played LU  (who are second on the ladder) and lost but played well and kept LU to 4 goals. Footy time! Someone couldn’t stay awake and cuddled in for a nap. Sunset. More footy – Hawks beat Freo by 51 points. It’s really cold.

Snuggled up in a blanket on the way back to the car. KFC for tea on the way home. All dressed up in her PJs plus new beanie & gloves from Grandma. Eurovision semi final 2. Lucky you are cute missy because 3am is not mum’s favourite time to be awake.

Morning cuddles with the girls before getting up. Breakfast and the usual morning school rush. A watched a little Bing bunny while I finished cleaning the dining room. Texting mum. Time for some morning baking. Miss A coming to check the mail. With a money box. As you do. A nice surprise in my email – I won a course with Holly McCaig. Getting a bit of work done while the muffins cook. Lunch for Miss A – meatballs. Lunch for us, leftover savoury toast.

Someone is toilet training on the big toilet. Today’s weather. More work. Startings f a nice sunset. Pumpkin soup for tea. Miss K has swimming at stays with Mum & Dad, J out playing D&D, Miss A sound asleep so I watched the first semi final of Eurovision while updating Dad’s laptop to Windows 10. My first BSoD on Windows 10. A little planner time then fold some washing and bed.

Someone woke and wanted a cuddle from mum Back to sleep then awake after sleeping through our alarm (oops). Breakfast, check emails, make Miss K school lunch and help her get dressed. Check Instragram and they’ve changed the logo and layout. Delivery for J, cards for D&D. Someone had to wear a dress, just like her sister. I spent the morning cleaning the dining room while J worked. Lunch – savoury toast. Miss A decided to play a bit of kitchen soccer with the beach ball.

IMG_4583

Then have a rest on the polar bear to watch some more Hey Dougee. Helping mum clean then hanging out waiting for Miss K to get home from school on the bus. Today’s weather. Tonight’s dinner – Beetroot meatballs with Aussie Roast veggies. Doing a survey for Neilson, it took HOURS, in between getting kids showered and to bed and washing up the dishes from dinner. Someone woke up just after midnight then crawled into bed at 12:45.

Get up and leave 2 sleepy heads in one bed and then get Miss K out of bed and ready for school.  A cheese sandwich and some cereal for breakfast then watch a little Toybox on the iPad. Today’s lunch for Miss K – cab loaf ham & mayo sandwich, wagon wheel, LCM and tiny teddies. Miss A got into Miss K’s lipgloss, then after a shower played with a nursery rhyme app. J out working so Miss A & decided to clean up the lounge room. Found one of Miss K’s drawings. Miss A decided to watch some ABC 4 Kids. Today’s weather.

Floor cuddles. More Hey Duggee. The difference between me & J with bacon – rind off for me, rind on for J. Lunch – mini egg & bacon pies for Miss A, BLT for me, bacon & eggs for J. No soccer because of the forecasted weather. Miss A had a nap so I got to do some uni work and have a sneaky red skin.

IMG_4576

And this is why soccer was cancelled, lots of rain! and wind. A bit of blogging while the girls watch the iPad on the cot. Tea tonight – tacos or taco salad. I made bread (& let it prove for nearly 4 hours!!!). One of Miss K’s soccer friends dropped round an invite to his party. Lots of washing inside due to the crappy weather. Miss A decided a dress up skirt & Hey Duggee were a better option than sleep.

IMG_4578

School reader time. Miss A finally crashed about 10! Bread finally cooked. Off to bed with Tony Delroy, our weeknightly bedtime listening, on ABC radio. My bedtime companion, til J comes to bed, Mystra. Good night world.
