One Thing: The Fairy Garden

I was reminded this week of these posts that I used to do on the blog all the time....I just checked and my last one was in 2019 so you might say, I had forgotten about them. Right now the idea of getting just one thing done seems about right. Most of us are stressed, overwhelmed and barely coping … [Read more...]

One thing: That dodgy this and that

You guys, it has been a VERY long time between #onethings hasn't it? In fact it's been about 18 months since I did one. And it's not that I have been doing them and then not writing about, I literally just haven't been doing them. Too busy? No excess money? Whatever the case, there's been a whole … [Read more...]

It’s spring! Let’s spring clean!

Although it doesn't feel like it today (bloody freezing again) we are now in Spring and I must say that my productivity levels have been HIGH. It feels good to be outside in the sunshine, working up a sweat and getting stuck into the house and garden and all the chores that you manage to put off in … [Read more...]

One thing: Those bloody photo books

Another thing that sits on my "ongoing guilt list of shit that needs to get done but cannot be bothered and now it's too late so maybe I won't do it but will just continue to feel vaguely guilty about it" are those bloody photo books. From like, 2015, 2016, and 2017. Funnily enough that this … [Read more...]

One Thing: Tick Tock

Yesterday morning I saw an opening in the morning so decided to conquer ALL of the things on my very long #onething list. For those of you not playing along, #onething is where I do just ONE THING from my to-do list, but not your every day to-do list. Oh no, this is the list of non essential … [Read more...]

One thing: The actual BEST thing

Yesterday I had a man in. And not just ANY man, a man with a van here to do a job I despise. Now I am ALL for getting a professional in to outsource a job. I've spent many a post discussing my love for this, from ovens to gardens and of course a cleaner if I have the cash to do so. I figure that if … [Read more...]

One thing: a simple trip to the hardware store

Oh it's SO good to have the bigs back at School. There's time to get stuff done! Well, as much as you can with an almost two year old in tow. But since Wednesday I have hit the ground running all in the name of GETTING SHIT DONE. While most of it has been everyday typo stuff, yesterday from … [Read more...]

One thing: The dodgy gate

As you know there has been a recent run of #onethings around these parts. The list that stares down at us from the wall next to the calendar has been taunting us with jobs and it has been a pure delight to cross a couple of them off. For those of you not playing along, #onething is where I do … [Read more...]

One thing: the old chest of drawers

Last week in the super cell of "getting shit done" I was on a ROLL. Found myself getting through so many annoying #onething jobs that I was pretty much looking for more just because I knew I would get them done! You guys will be happy to know that I also dropped off EVERY bag of goods to various … [Read more...]

Help! My organisation moon is rising & I’m exhausted

If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen a FLURRY of activity at Casa BabyMac over the weekend the likes not seen since I was knocked up with Mags back in late 2014. I'm not entirely sure what's going on (is there an eclipse rising in my virgo moon or something?) but I haven't even been … [Read more...]

One thing: Maggie gets her own room {at last}

We had some free time this weekend without Rob working so we decided to tackle a project that has been on the #onething list for some time now. And by some time, I mean like 18 months or so. Cough. This one thing: Moving Maggie into her own room, For those of you not playing along, #onething … [Read more...]

One thing: Moving my body

Last week I decided that enough was enough. Enough with the holiday eating. And drinking. And just general overindulgence. You know when you just kind of snap? The tight jeans with tide of flesh does the trick EVERYTIME. So you know what I did? I did something sitting on my #onething list for … [Read more...]

One thing: Fans

I'll tell you something for nothing, the reason there has not been a #onething since MAY is because, I have not done ANYTHING from my #onething list. You see, somehow, the last 6 months of the year have disappeared before my very eyes. Winter came and went, and now Spring, here and tomorrow gone as … [Read more...]

One thing: A WORX giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed and the winners have been chosen. Congrats to Jo, Tess, Shannen & Merilyn! I tell you something for nothing, my #onething list seems to have gone to shit as I have on my hands one very busy baby who has me running around after her. Gone are the days of a sitting … [Read more...]

One thing: The Driveway

The last of our #onethings before Rob's party was a big one. One that we had been meaning to do for at least 2-3 years now, and like I said, nothing like a deadline to give you a kick! Our driveway was in dire need of getting a top load of gravel on it. It was non existent in patches, dirty and … [Read more...]


I've said it before, but there's nothing like a deadline to get shit DONE around a house is there?! Rob's party was just the ticket to get all kinds of little (and bigger) things done including one of my annual #onething THE WINDOWS. For those of you not playing along, #onething is where I do … [Read more...]

One thing: deep clean

There's nothing like a deadline to get things done is there? I highly suggest creating one, even an imaginary one, that you work towards to make sure you get through your #onething list. For those of you not playing along, #onething is where I do just ONE THING from my to-do list, but not your … [Read more...]

One thing: All the better to see you with

I celebrated the first weekday morning of the school holidays of not having to get up and rush out the door with...getting up and rushing out the door for eye tests for the girls that I had booked in. Probably not my smartest move, but I had been told by the lady at OPSM that I needed to get them in … [Read more...]

One thing: Adulting

Oh it's been a week. I managed to collapse into a heap after the Easter long weekend and succumb to the nasty cold that Harps, Daisy, Mags and I think Rob started with a few weeks ago. Sigh. But this morning I am finally feeling more like me, albeit with a bit of a headache from too much wine last … [Read more...]

One thing: Date night

There's been something I have been meaning to do for well over 10 months of those things that definitely gets put off week after week and month after month but something so simple and SO important: a date night with Rob. You see, since Mags was born, we have been REALLY bad at spending … [Read more...]
