Firstly tonight I want to thank all my new ‘Likers’ on the Common Chaos Chronicle Facebook Page.
It’s fantastic to see so many of you sharing the blog on.
It inspires me to write more and reassure’s me that I’m writing in the right direction when I can see the numbers of fans slowly but surely rising.
If you havent stopped by the Facebook page yet, check it out and remember to like the actual page!
This blog started as a means for me to clear my head of daily thoughts, collate my organising ideas, keep a record of crafts, record my work around the house and to keep me organised and up to date with basically everything in our lives.
Something I have been meaning to do for a lot of years now. With the encouragement of friends and family, I started to write and I am loving every minute of it.
Not only am I falling to sleep straight away each night with a clear mind, (good-bye tossing and turning for hours on end), it’s very uplifting to hear from people who have tried my ideas, used my meals plans and been inspired to create.
I would never have imagined that people would want to read my life story in a blog, let alone subscribe to it.
So I thank-you. You readers really make my day…. everyday lately 🙂
Today was a biggie…..
We were all up early in preparation to meet up with my step-daughter Mackenzi and bring her home for the week.
The children were so filled with excitement that they almost bowled Mack over as soon as they saw her, and the rest of our day has pretty much followed suit.
It must be hard on them to only see her during school holiday breaks, they miss her beyond belief and I am now going to try to organise a regular weekly Skype video call for her and the kids to catch up with each other.
Perhaps this can become another ritual in our house just like our movie night.
In desperation of some kind of calm, we put on a dvd for the kids to watch late this afternoon while dinner warmed up. It was very short-lived but it did buy me close to half an hour of quite before they were bouncing off the walls again. I can definitely feel a few outdoor adventures coming on!!!! 🙂
Also this evening I have been busy designing invitations for the twins 7th birthday parties that are coming up in May. I love fiddling around with stuff like this.
I guess it’s just another extension on my scrapbooking. Now I just have to print them out and laminate them and they’re done! Yey!
So on that note, I’m off to crank up the laminator…. one of my favourite devices from our office…..Ahhhh……
Stay tuned for more CHAOS tomorrow!!! 🙂
