As part of my ongoing quest to get our lives more organised and less chaotic, I have signed up for the Buttoned Up Bootcamp, starting on 1 February. I am really looking forward to getting some systems in place to make everyday life run a little more smoothly. Wish me luck! I’ll let you know how I get on.
One of the busiest times for us each day is the morning. As I am due back at work in the next few weeks, our morning routines are going to become even more important if we’re all to get out the door on time each day without meltdowns and tears.
