Whilst I have been 'Missing In Action', I haven't been idle. In fact, I've been working really hard on the challenge and organising everything in my life, from the house and my daily routine to my reading schedule.

I realised last week that I was really sick of cooking, then I started thinking about why because I've always loved cooking for my family. Then I figured out that I was bored, so time to get online and look at my favourite recipe site and find some new recipes. Not only have I been cooking new dinners but I've been baking 3 times a week as well, which the family is loving.

I've managed to stay on top of the housework and the washing and my blogging and have read 5 or so books in the last 2 weeks. Plus I've had my Mum stay over for a few days. So I'm feeling very organised and on top of everything! I'm also going to take the plunge and try online grocery shopping next week. I've done a lot of research and comparing prices etc, I've organised my menu in advanced and chosen the company I'm gong to use. So this will also be something new and if it works out will make life a little bit easier.

So how are you all going with your personal challenge?

  1. With having the hubby home you would think that I would get more done you know an extra pair of hands but he keeps wanting me to help him. I am blogging about the last weeks work later today with my 15minutes of time taken up with different thinks everyday. Tomorrow I am starting again and will start in the front room with the tidying of a bomb site that my family create.
    Loving your blog by the way.

  2. You have done well, looking forward to hearing what you think of the online shopping!

    Don't know about organised but I have stayed on top of things even though life is a little chaotic and I will be blogging later about how the cooking bug seems to have bitten all our family - are you sitting down - Ant cooked a penne chicken dish!!

  3. Hi Jo, I don't ever find having hubby's around is ever a help LOL.

    WOW Sheree, that's great, there is hope yet!
