I was tempted to title this post "Help!" - I have been feeling a lot more overburdened recently with various things. I have found myself shouting and being grumpy. I am trying to make a concerted effort not to be so grouchy and not to shout but, you know what? It's hard somedays.
So here's what I have done to alleviate shouting...and get organised. So far. It's a work in progress.

3. I made weekly wall planners for T and Little I. T is a scatterbrain, a total scatterbrain and I am trying to train him for taking more responsibility before going up to senior school in two years time. I looked online for a weekely planner template then was struck by the idea of just drawing out my own. T was so happy because I drew Yoshi on his. "You were born to draw Yoshi, Mum" (I have now found the reason for my existence....to draw Yoshi. I am soooooo glad I have cleared up that question).
* Try telling a logical thinking five year old that l'aunch pad' is a metaphor for launching them into their day, "no, it's not for a rocket, no, really nothing to do with rockets"....she looked at me as if I were insane.
Any more organisational tips? Or shall I just quit now and lie down in my own chaos?
