{tuesday’s top 5} school’s in ~ A-grade tips and tricks

back to school

Can you hear that? The collective sighs of relief from mums across the nation as the smalls head back to school. For us, it was like they had never left, I packed them up on Monday and off they went. Back to routine, just like that <inset finger snap here>. And so far it’s not too bad, but I won’t always be this organised. So I’ve bookmarked some tips here that I’ve spotted around the web this week  so perhaps I can start as I mean to go on!

  1. Mornings are not my thing so loving this series on “Make the Most of your Mornings” series on Tam’s blog Around here
  2. Lunch organisation with Kate Says Stuff ~ this is something I need to try, see point 1.
  3. Maddie at Lil Magooglie has rounded up some fabulous bento blogs for lunch ideas
  4. Some fun jokes and notes you can print out and pop in their lunch boxes
  5. Kate and her readers are sharing back to school snacks over at picklebums

And Nic has a great round-up of parent resources on Planning with Kids for children of all ages.


{seeds} procrastinating ~ who me?


Don’t get me started on the list of things I’m presently procrastinating about? Acutually, I should write that list down so I know what I have to do.

See that right there, that’s procrastinating!

The words are from this post about procrastinating that I read this week ~  and with the smalls now back at school, and the year now in full swing, I’m running out of excuses.

Procrastinating? 10 ways to get it done

{snapshot} IMBY inspiration

in my back yard

Life returns to routine today as the smalls head back to school and I fear my photo habit will be sorely tested in coming days and weeks as the humdrum of life takes over.

So I’m practicing Imby inspiration.

What’s Imby inspiration you ask? It’s finding inspiration in my back yard.

On the weekend, that meant literally as I headed out in the last rays of sunshine when I had the opportunity to take some photos.

I need to practice  taking photos closer to home and learn to look for the unique amongst the ordinary.

Where are you finding inspiration today?
