When things start going a little bit crazy, the first thing I do is go back to basics. Like when I feel overwhelmed with the business, I drag out one of my master to-do lists and start writing down everything.
In the same way, when if feels like things are too busy in my life at home, I get back to basics with a few things. I:
- write EVERYTHING down on our kitchen calendar
- clean my kitchen (I like an uncluttered working space so this helps me feel centred; a friend likes doing laundry - ugh!!!)
- menu plan
This week, things should be back to normal again. But if you're having a crazy busy time, grab a menu planning form and write down a few meals. It doesn't have to stifle your spontaneity or creativity - you can mix it up and have Thursday's meal on Monday if that's what you feel like, etc.
Make the plan work for you.
So, this week's menu is as follows:
Out with a friend ;)
Baked potatoes and apricot chicken
Pasta with kidney bean sauce
Chicken curry, pumpkin and rice
Chicken burgers and weigh-less chips
Visit Laura for a gazillion more menus. The last time I checked there were over 300!
And don't forget to visit on Friday to show off what you declutter this week.
