Friday free day

It's my day off!  I swapped days this week with Andy since I was in London on my kid day.  He watched the kids, and I got a day of holiday at home with kids in nursery.  I think i've come out ahead this time.

I started the day with my 6:30am breakfast date with G.  I love a social breakfast date.

Then back home to start my time block to-do

  • 8:30 Laundry, dinner prep, address cards
  • 9:00 Declutter lounge
  • 9:30 to Brunch with J!
  • 10:00 Brunch date with J <3
  • 12:00 Organize and declutter sideboard and dining room shelves
  • 12:30 Organize and declutter kids art
  • 1:00 rotate toys around house / declutter
  • 1:30 Laundry projects
  • 2:00 Hallways hook project with Andy
  • 2:30 Organize/declutter/tidy kids art supplies
  • 2:30 Online Wilco order for halloween
  • 3:00 Blog post & Budget
And now it's 3:30 and it's time for planning.  I didn't get to the following:
  • Wrap Present for Saturday
  • Reply to emails // inbox 0
  • Dye Hair
  • Buy new socks
  • Bake a cake
It's been a great day of clearing and decluttering, I have two bags for the charity shop and a full bag of trash and recycling.  Hopefully it's noticeable in the house too.  I still need to sort out a good way to display knick-knacks.  I did throw a knick-knack away today though, so at least my collection is smaller?

It's time to start thinking about November goals.  I love October, it's been so busy and so fun.

After writing my post yesterday I was thinking about how much fun a two and four year old are, and wondered why I didn't remember Isaac being as much fun when he was 2. Then I realized it's because I had a 6 week old when he was two and a six week old and two year old is ridiculously hard work and way less fun than a two year old and a four year old.

I do find myself continually aware of how much fun my life is right now, and how lucky I am.


  1. This is beautiful. It's wonderful to find yourself in a moment or dtage of life that you really enjoy. So happy for you!

    1. Aww thanks! It's so awesome to have a blog reader again. I knew you would be keen to recreate 2006 with me! :-)
