Ergh!! Where has the year gone? Are we really already doing the Advent Calendar countdown to Christmas? Counting our way down to the madness one chocolate at a time? (my kids love it) My current diary is so packed with all the last minute things that are happening for the remainder of 2015 that I know there is no way I could ever do without the thing. It's my lifeline. I'd be completely lost without it.
In it are an abundance of things I still have to remember to do, such as get my eldest son to a dress rehearsal this weekend and his final dance concert, (my two year old daughter even has a dance concert, a Christmas show), my two middle boys, who are starting school next year, have prep transition days, my eldest, who is off to high school next year, has orientation days, and he also has a final day of celebration at primary school, where they will be having water fights....so I had to remember to buy him a water gun....and he also does drama at school....where there is an end of year play...so as the Sun God I had to find him a pair of yellow leggings....(I failed and had to buy him white instead). My husband is also written up in my diary and finally using the present I gave him for Christmas last year (a training flight in a light aircraft....which is this Sunday) There's a whole bunch of other things too; like a kinder Christmas party for my 4 year old son, a Christmas disco for the kinder kids, a concert and graduation for my two middle boys at their day care, a Christmas party for the day care and somewhere in there I think I was invited to a Christmas BBQ where the local CFA (Country Fire Authority) will be coming around with Santa in the back of the truck and handing out lollies. It's doing my head in! And somewhere in there I have to try and find time to do some Christmas shopping. I have mountains left to do but more bills than I can poke a stick at so I'm not exactly sure how all of that is going to happen. It usually has a way of working itself out so I'm just trying not to think about it at this point.Kikki K. It's a really nice stationery company and this diary will give me more space to scribble. Trust me. I need it. This one has lots of cute illustrations through it but no space taken up with massive photos so it's a good one.
Tiny Me. They have the cutest personalised stuff. Bags for kids, lunch boxes, stationery etc. This calendar is one of those ones where you can personalise it and inside are columns, one for everyone family member, and they actually print the names of each family member on each column. There was just the right number available, so all six of us are set and I figured, what with life getting increasingly busy as my kids get older, it is going to be the most useful thing in my house.
Have you bought your 2016 diary or calendar yet?!
