Holiday packing

As I struggle up the stairs with the beach umbrella, 4 beach towels, 4 bath towels, suncream, hats,shoes, sleeping bags, clothes etc. I wonder, is it really worth going away for just 2 nights? (3 days, my teenager reminds me). Thank goodness I have trained my children into the holiday packing routine. They know to lay their clothes out on the bed for me to pass my eyes over before packing it,(after they left for school this morning I went to do this inspection I was glad to see that each had even remembered the plastic bag for dirty clothes), the shoe bag is in the laundry for everyone to place their shoes for the trip, the towels and suncreams always go in the beach bag, the toilet bags come out already packed with the holiday toothbrush, shampoo and conditioner, hairbrush and soap just waiting to be used again. All these little routines and habits I have passed on, may seem so anal but when, as the mother, I am left to organise all aspects of any time away they all help make my job easier. Bring on the sun and surf!!

Our first post!

This is our first post (whatever that is), most programs say it takes 5 minutes to setup a blog and it's taken us 2 hours and we still don't know what we're doing, but we do know What's for Dinner!

We're really only testing at this stage and will be more interesting shortly! Stay tuned!

our aim is to organise!!

Organising people and their stuff is what Tricia and I do best. Through this blog I hope that we can reach more people (Mothers across Australia) . We will not only pass on our ideas and helpful tips but hopefully people will visit our blog, leave a comment and the ball will start rolling. So with our website ,our monthly newsletter and now our new blog you will never hear the end of us.
We are both just learning how all this blog stuff works so if you have any tips please pass them on to us, we need all the help we can get. I would like our blog to one day be as infomative and beautiful as a couple I have found whilst surfing the web today, Absolutely beautiful things and All things bright and beautiful. No harm in dreaming and aiming high.
