casually rotate the tasks.
Also, I have added a to do list, giving myself reachable goals for each day. One of our major problems is piling up papers, as you see here, so that was top of today's to do list. Hopefully, with small manageable goals for each day, I can really get on top of this chronic disorganisation. You'll see that I've also designed a menu sheet. Only half of it is shown here; the other half is separated into the different food types (eg vegetables, bread, storecupboard items, dairy etc) so that as I am writing my menu I can also write my shopping list, and then when I am done I just cut off the list half and take it with me to the supermarket.
I've also spent some time today making Soule Mama's laundry powder. I usually use soapnuts but have to admit that whites often need a little more. The SM recipe is great and has brought my whites up lovely. I use Dr Bronner's soap, which I purchase from Ebay, and have no shortage of willing volunteers to grate it - lol. Speaking of soapnuts, I boiled some up to use as multipurpose cleaner today. A handful of soapnuts to four cupfuls of water and boil for 20 mins. I actually boiled them twice to see what would happen and must say that the second batch seemed to be fine; I've put that in a handwash dispenser for grubby little hands.
After much anticipation my long awaited diswasher arrived at the weekend and I have been happily avoiding washing up ever since. I do wash my pans by hand but it is sooooooo much less time consuming than previously. Praise the Lord for dishwashers!!
Lastly I just want to post some piccies of my little man on his feet. He is nine months old and walking around the furniture. Oh joy. But such a cutie!!!!
