Spring Fluffing???

You may be asking why I have included a photo of a frangipani on our organising/decorating blog. Well, in reading about blogging (there is alot to learn) and surfing the web I have learnt that the there are so many beautiful blogs and bloggers out there who we can learn from and share with. Melissa from The Inspired room (USA) is doing a Spring Fluffing game with her readers (she has lots) and they are all sending in photos of how they are getting their houses ready for Spring.

Well here in Australia we are at the end of Autumn and heading into Winter. I went out into the garden to find what was left of the summer flowers and found the last of our Frangipanis. So this is my contribution to Melissa's Spring fluffing game.

Instead of Spring Fluffing here in Australia we all should be getting ready for Winter. Here are some of the chores we are doing in our house.

  • Get out the Winter School uniforms making sure they fit. (taking down hems if needed)
  • get out the blankets and washing or airing them before they are put on the beds,
  • making sure everyone has winter PJs that fit ( I have already had to get new pairs for both my girls)
  • Dust off the heaters
  • T and I believe that now, even though it is the middle of the year, it is a good time to get organised in all aspects of your life, and one of the biggest challenges for Mums is the paper work and day to day routines. Have a look at our family organiser on , buy one now and finish off the year in an orderly fashion. Don't forget to enter our Mothers Day Competition.

This is just for starters, but hopefully it has got you motivated to get these things done so you don't spend the school holidays doing these boring chores! S

Greetings! I think Fall Fluffing is just as important as Spring Fluffing! Just, well, different. I love getting ready for fall after a long summer! Fall is really my FAVORITE season! But I am in need of some sunshine and warmer weather first.

Thanks so much for sharing your Spring Fluffing post. You are a good sport (good sort!)...

Thanks for sharing this post with your readers!

Happy day,
