My Plan For This Week

Image above via Pinterest

Sometimes, I go through a bit of a blogging block where I don’t quite know what to type or I haven’t taken photos to accompany something I’d like to write about. Other times, I feel as though my head is over-flowing with ideas and inspiration and I can’t post quick enough to share everything with you all. This week is one of those weeks. Unfortunately, with things a bit all over the place here at the moment, it may take me longer to write those posts than I’d like.

After a weekend I’d rather forget, I’m all set to start the week fresh. Thankfully we don’t have a lot planned besides a Child Health Nurse check-up for Sophie tomorrow so this week I’m hoping to:

• do some online gift shopping
• buy all our Christmas presents in one hit at the shops
• try some new reflux medication for Sophie
• catch up on blog posts and reply to long overdue emails
• place a big bulk Coles online shopping order to last the next few weeks
• plant the new herbs I bought (when it cools down later in the week)
• sort through Grace’s toy boxes

What do you hope to cross off your ‘to do list’ this week?

Also, if you missed my last post, I'm having a little giveaway... Enjoy your Monday everyone!


  1. What a great list Amanda, I hope that you have a productive week and get all of those things done and enjoy yourself. xx

  2. Mine is also a mile long and seemingly endless. I forget every year how much energy is required just to make it through December.

    Good luck crossing off your to dos! x

  3. I like that image with that To Do list - the most important things but the easiest to forget hey! I hope you're ok hun and whatever happened this weekend that this week will be much better!
    Big hugs as always,

  4. Hi Amanda, You really are an inspiration to have a new baby and Grace and be able to be so organised is amazing. I think my trouble when mine were little was that instead of planning my day, i just responded to whatever happened and then before i knew it, the day was gone! Hope little Sophies reflux settles down, for her and you! Jane x

  5. Hi Amanda, you sound more organised than me, have a lovely week.x

  6. If I can just get through to the end of each day without more grey hair I'll be happy :) Good luck with your list Amanda.

  7. Wow, all the pressies off the list at once! That's huge, well for my family it is anyhow. Good luck with that : ) This week I'm hoping to decide on my new outdoor setting (which one), and get at least 1/4 of the pressies finished : ) ...and I have a stack of illustrations to finish also. Thank you for stopping by my blog - it is always lovely to meet new people!

  10. Hi Amanda, thanks so much for coming past White Verandah and all your lovely comments! I cant believe you are so organised with a newborn... When i was in your shoes, the only thing on my list was sleep - you go girl!!

  11. i know what you mean about your head over-flowing with ideas and not getting the time to jot them down. I had started recording my ideas as soon as one entered my head using the voice recorder on my phone - you know, you could be chopping carrots and you think of something. Trouble is, that's where the ideas have stayed - recorded in the phone! Oh for more time! Vanessa

  12. very very cute pic! def need one of those

  13. Cutest picture. I love that list! Hope your little family is going well. Merry Christmas too! x

  14. I need to get lots of sewing done this week but with hubby being so busy with work not much has been done, hopefully the weekend will be more productive. I hope that Sophie feels better soon and that the new medicine works. Have a wonderful week. xx

  15. I think I need to sit down and write a list too. I always feel more organised when things are written down. I hope Sophie's reflux starts to settle soon.

  16. My list seems to grow faster than I can cross it off.

    Buying Christmas presents is at the forefront of my mind right now.



Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment - it really makes my day!!
