The end of summer.

My older girls went back to school today :-(
I really thought that I'd be looking forward to them going back, but I wasnt. We have had the lovliest summer. Dont get me wrong, there have been lots of whining & arguing. But the bad times were definitely outweighed by the good. We didnt complete all of our list (finances are not good right now), but we achieved quite a bit & spent lots of time doing nothing together. Its been really nice.
I still have my youngest at home as her school doesnt start for 2 weeks.
I am looking forward to getting back into a routine, actually starting a brand new routine which works better for us than last year! & getting the house under control (Im waging war on clutter!) Ive been busy reading organising blogs & pinning ideas. But then I find I have too many ideas & dont know which ones to use!!
Do you have any good tips? Or blogs that you read that you can suggest?
I am also looking forward to having some specific crafting time for myself. Im toying with the idea of making some bits to sell. Plus before we know it, it will be Christmas!!! I really dont want to be finishing making stuff on Christmas Eve, that was not fun last year lol!!


  1. Athriftymrs.com is a fab blog if you haven't come across it.

  2. Sounds like we are on the same page for our own Autumn Term curriculum! Have you tried searching for very specific boards on Pinterest? Or is it that you are not sure what you want to make or where to start the declutter?
