Goodmorning. What would you like to talk about this morning? I would love to hear from you. So don’t be shy, we are all pretty friendly around here, because you are all such lovely people!
So tell me a bit about yourself. Lets keep it simple to start with. How about you tell me where you are from, how old you are and what you do. You can do this in the “comments” section at the bottom of this post. Go on, have a go, you won’t regret it.
Is it getting cold in your part of the world, or is it warming up? Things have finally cooled down here at Chardy Central, which I am very happy about. I even have my winter pj’s on. The air conditioner has been switched to heat (well for the first few hours of the morning anyway) and things are just so much more pleasant.
I have been feeling like the old Miss Chardy was returning the past couple of days. In a mess, cranky, cheese falling off the cracker and what not. After all of my Get Sorted with Chards efforts earlier in the year I thought it was all spiralling out of control. It is all well and good when we are here 24/7 but when we go away for a weekend I just can’t seem to catch up. Why do we put so much pressure on ourselves? Seriously, I can report that I am nearly sorted and look, it is only Wednesday, it isn’t like I have been playing catch up for 2 weeks. Of course I am not going to have everything perfect at the snap of my fingers. Why the hell do I even care? Oh god it makes me cranky.
So last night I put the kids to bed and I stayed up and sorted the house out, once and for all. I got the laundry back in order, I picked up 246 pieces of tiny lego and a few other bits and pieces. Turns out the mess was all in my head. It only took about 20 minutes to clean up, but by golly once it was all tidy I felt so calm. I took a deep breath and just looked around and my tidy house. It sure was soothing to the soul, you are so right Faux Fuchsia have I even told you how good you are lately? So hopefully today will be a better day…. surely. Maybe I won’t be such a cranky old cow to the kids and my lovely husband. I might just go and pop a Rescue Remedy for breakfast.
Do you have any hints and tips you can share with us on dealing with the mess and washing and car load of crap that comes with a weekend away? If you have ANY little tips please share them. The year is about to get busy and we will be going away a fair bit, each weekend seems to be full already, I really don’t want to fall back into my old ways. Remember – I have now been clean since 27th January! This is an all time record. I am looking forward to having this weekend at home to catch up, but after that it will be crazy town.

Well that is it – another ramble done and dusted from Chards. Lets have a chat in the comment section. Share your tips, they really do motivate me. Tell us where you are from. We would love to hear from you. People are such sticky beaks and love to know the ins and outs of others. Or maybe that is just me.
Have a great Wednesday!
