Organising catch up

I havent gone awol , just trying to get some organisation back into my life. So much going on at the moment with renovating , buisness tax returns , kids  activities etc etc . I just needed to take a little breather.
                     Breathe in , Breathe out , Breathe in , Breath out..........

       Hopefully the laundry renovation will be finished by the end of next week. Bench top is being made while we speak, basin arrived yesterday , going to buy tapware & power points tommorow , fingers crossed all the tradies are available . And I am deciding for the splashback whether to tile in white or my favourite blue or I read on a blog how to paint the back of glass for a splash back. ( I cant remember where I read this, so if anyone else has read about this technique could you let me know please. I remember them saying you had to be careful not to scratch the paint during installation) I also thought of maybe using wall paper & putting a sheet of glass over it , that way I can change my look if I tire of it. I think I would like to finish the laundry with a splash of colour because I cant find the right blue in accesories . What are your thoughts ?
I finally got my new camera yesterday after a month without one , I have felt utterly lost like I had my right arm cut off. I even bought a disposable one on Sunday just to get some mothers day photos. Tommorow I am taking some time out in the morning to test it out. I am going to one of my favourite spots for relaxing with my Home Beautiful to finally read A-Ms article. I took a sneak peek at the pics .....I will post tommorow my shots with the new camera. See you then.

  1. I hear you Karyn, when you're finished organising your place could you pop on over and do mine? Sounds like your laundry reno is in full swing, so looking forward to seeing the finished product. Sorry can't help with the painted glass, but I'd be interested too if you find more, it sounds like a great idea. Enjoy reading A-M's feature, it's fantastic! K xx

  2. So much going on Karyn. I hope it all goes smoothly.
    You'll be having to recharge that camera battery in no time!

  3. Sounds like you've things have been busy over your way. Can't wait to see your laundry. I like the wallpaper under glass idea for a splashback. Have fun relaxing and reading xx

  4. You sound so very busy...hope all goes well and can't wait to see your pics Hugs Kym X

  5. I love the wallpaper under glass look, I was too chicken to use it! Glad you have a camera now, no blogger can be without one! I got a beautiful little one for Mothers Day, I'd been using our big heavy thing..Rachaelxx

  6. Hey glad you're back. We all need to take some time away and getting organized does it for me! Thanks for stopping by. I can't wait for the sneak peak of
    A-M's house!

  7. I too am in serious need of reorganisation. Shhh don't tell anyone but I think I am spending too much time in blogland and not enough in Moerkland. Your laundry sounds fabulous I can't wait for it all to be revealed. Hope the new camera is good. What was it? I can't remember whether or not you said.

  8. Oh, I am SO with you! I always feel a million times better once I reorganize, though! XO!

  9. Sounds like its not just me who can't find enough time in the days lately :) Can't wait to see your laundry. I just had some new laundry cabinets installed and I'm stuck on the splashback too. I may go with subways like our kitchen but want to 'splash' out with something different. I might wait and see your inspiration :)

  10. I'm with you... I spent all day yesterday organizing. I do feel much better now, how about you:)
    Thanks taking a moment to stop by my blog. It's so nice to meet you!


Love reading all of your comments.
