Getting more organised

Its Day 2 of the 30 blog posts in 30 days challenge and today is a personal reflection.

I am a very organised person at the best of times, anyone who knows me knows this. I am always moving, have things under control or at least in process most of the time, know where everything is and belongs (cos I’m tidy too).  My husband sums me up by saying I make coffee nervous.

So how am I coping with working full time after 10 years working part-time? Bring it on!

Today for example. Wednesdays was usually my washing and non-grocery shopping day. I would do the major washing for the week and cook a roast. Even after being back at work full-time for 4 weeks, I am still managing this and the rest of the domestic duties, better than I had ever hoped.

How? Well first off, I have help – from my wonderful family, especially my nearly 11 year old daughter. She is very keen to learn more about how to do things on the home front and extremely happy to help, for which I am so very grateful.  I have also shifted a few things around and I’m organised. This is not a boast. It is a lesson in itself.

When I took this job, I really did wonder if I would be able to keep up with everything that I was able to manage when I worked part-time.  Turns out I can, with some help and some concerted organisation.

I really feel (so far at least), that I am proving out the adage, that if you want something done, give it to a busy person.

More reflections on Day 3 of the 30 blog posts in 30 days challenge tomorrow.

    It really pays to be organised. If I didn’t have some routines and 3 places for calendar/diary information I would go mad. Even so, sometimes things do slip through the cracks.. like today I forgot it was daycare pyjama day. *sigh* Bad Mummy moment.

  1. I know the feeling, and I do love my 5 Google calendars on two logins, just run into trouble when I forget to check them, lol.
