15 days in and I’m only just changing my blog theme. Oh dear. Oh well it is 2020
What’s been happening here over the last few months? Lots.
Work has been busy. I’m busy planning to add some new services next year and do some New Year/Back to School specials.
The kiddos finish school for the summer break on Thursday. Today is their school pool picnic. I feel sorry for their teachers. Behaviour at home has been pretty shocking but they are tired and over the whole year. I know I am.
Mum’s first anniversary passed quietly. We spent the afternoon with Dad. Did some cleaning out in the garage (nearly all the craft stuff is boxed up and ready to come here – I’m getting a craft room again!). Had a BBQ. Dad & the kiddos played a bit of cricket. Mum would have loved it.
I’ve been doing lots of crafting but that will all be over at Nightwolf Scraps
We’re still fostering cats. We now own 4 cats after one has become a permanent foster due to her stressful nature. Slowly becoming the crazy cat lady, haha!
I’ve enrolled to do some study next year. Waiting to hear back more details after getting offered a place.
That’s about it really. Will be back later with our recipes for the last few months. Some really yum foods.
Well one didn’t predict the lockdown and not being able to do anything much when I shortened my 101 things to finish in January.
Here’s what I was going to do and what my results are…..
List found here
I’ve gone through my list (which you can check out here) and thought I’d list what is left. Then I thought about it some more and a few of those items aren’t on my radar any more, aren’t of interest or not doable by April.
SO here’s what I still have left to do by April……
25 actionable things to do by the 28th of April. I can do this
Is it? When our country is burning? And some of our pollies don’t seem to give a damn.
This is where the fires are currently…..

To put it into perspective, when the Amazon was on fire it was an area of approx. 2,2400,000 acres. Currently in Australia – approx. 11,300,000. I’ll let that sink in for a moment.
Fortunately where we are, there are currently no fires and we are not near enough the bush to worry but thousands aren’t so lucky. Thousands have lost everything. We’ve lost so much of our native wildlife and native flora. And they are saying the worst is yet to come with extreme fire conditions predicted for the weekend.
Our PM went on holiday to Hawaii during the fires and only can back when there was such an outcry from the public. Since then there have been meagre offers of help from those in power and lots of ‘thoughts and prayers’. Sorry thoughts and prayers don’t do squat when everything you own is gone.
What can we do to help?
To donate to the Salvation Army disaster appeal, you can call 13 SALVOS (13 72 58), donate at any Woolworths checkout, or donate online here.
The Australian Red Cross launched a joint disaster appeal with the ABC (Australian Broadcast Commission) to support communities affected by fires, so far raising over $2 million. You can donate here.
St Vincent De Paul Society are also running a disaster appeal. You can donate here or in person at any Vinnies store.
Here’s hoping for a cool change and some much needed rain.
and with that it’s time to do the final update for my list of 100 things in 2019.
Honestly I’m not sure if I’m going to do it again in 2020 but I know I will be trying to finish off my list of 101 things which you can see over here.
On with the list……

Hello? Anyone still here?
I’ve been blogging over on my craft blog and thought about doing something planner related and remembered that’s on this blog. Opps. I’ve been a bit neglectful of my baby.
So……. time for an update post. Strap in, it could be a long one.
We’ve got a Christmas update to the look. I’m working behind the scenes for a new look for 2020. So stay tuned.
Family – the 4 of us are doing well.
Miss K is in grade 3. Growing like a weed and will be taller than me soon. She’s turning into quite a good swimmer and represented the school this year in a swimming carnival.
Miss A is in Kinder and has made some great friends. Still a fussy eater (so any advice? LOL)
J & I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary. J got his first tattoo. I added another to my collection.
Mum passed away in her sleep on the 6th of December. Her funeral was yesterday. The last week has been hard and tiring.
Planner wise. I made 3 years in a bound bullet journal. Still love it. BUT I finally bit the bullet and subbed to a planner subscription. Went with Planners Anonymous cause they are Australian and not super expensive (start at $45AUD). I am seriously in love. Each month the basic kit is 6 sheets of double sided paper, 1 sheet of Vellum, 1 sheet of Acetate, a pen, 3 rolls of washi (25mm, 15mm & 9mm), a full sized stamp set, feature die cut, a set of die cuts, a feature 6×8 print, a bookmark, 6 journal cards AND a sticker sheet set PLUS each month there is a mystery item.
The kit for November is That’s So 90s and it makes my inner 90s teen super excited.
Oh and they do awesome subscriber bonuses. Each month you get a printable insert, phone backgrounds, a digital copy of the cards and cute printable planner girls (& guys). There’s is also the option to buy a luxe version of the insert.
That’s not all (but wait, there’s steak knives LOL) – they also make the most gorgeous B6 Travellers Notebook covers! Yeah I am a bit of a fan. You can check out what I’ve been doing with the subs over on my planner Instagram.
(Want to sub and get 10% off your first order? Follow this link)
Craft wise you can see what I’ve been up to over at Nightwolf Scraps. I’m slowly updating it with my crafty creations for 2019. Lots of Awesome Ladies Project and The Reset Girl stuff.
Hopefully I might start sharing over here a bit more now and not leave it so long between updates.
Hi stranger. How’ve you been? Me? Well it’s been an interesting few months but that’s another post for another day. Today I’m here to update my 100 things list for this year…..
