October is here and it’s been a whirlwind of a year but here we are and I couldn’t be happier. This time last year, we were still in London, post renal transplant, hoping so much that H would stay well long enough for us to get home. By the time we finally returned home, school was well underway and we didn’t really get much time to settle in gradually. Between the frequency of hospital admissions and holidays, H barely spent much time at school.
I don’t consider myself to be the most organised person, nor do I consider myself the least organised, but when life constantly has other plans, trying to get organised is like trying to shovel a hole in the mud in the pouring rain. That means routines, schedules and any form of organisation of daily life was impossible.
This year, apart from being elated that we were actually going home after 8 weeks, I was looking forward to being able organise things a little more, and what better way to put organisation into practice than having a child going to school.
As a self-professed stationary addict, saying I’m a fan of lists and anything that comes in a notebook might be a slight understatement (just ask my husband), and the sheer joy I get from applying stickers to pages makes me convinced that ‘sticker-ing’ (still not coming up in the urban dictionary) is actually a real thing.
Between my love of stationary, getting organised, and my need to create cute and functional items for children, it was only natural that I designed a Morning Routine Template to help with getting the kids organised.
