Bin day – we tow the bins down to the end of the driveway on the back of the car. Way too far to walk :)IMG_5860

Shopping after school is never the most fun.IMG_5880

But the bun made it a bit better!IMG_5899Stories for Sawyer – The Very Busy Spider.

I wasn’t well today and spent the day at home. It would be easy for me to give up on WITL at this point – as Ali said in her blog today Wednesday is a bit of a point of no return. Keen to keep on going – we have some exciting stuff happening later this week.

Week in the Life – Tuesday

Week in the Life at Documenting Chaos - tuesdayBy some crazy miracle all three of the boys were asleep when we got up this morning. That almost never happens!

Week in the Life at Documenting Chaos - tuesdayFlynnie and Sawyer heading out to the car with Gus, one of our 5 dogs (and the biggest by far!).

Week in the Life at Documenting Chaos - tuesdaySawyer checking for eggs at daycare. He has appointed himself the egg collector and carries the eggs very carefully into his classroom and puts them in the fridge.

Week in the Life at Documenting Chaos - tuesdayFlynnie signing in at school – capitals are the favourite at the moment, which is an improvement to the mirror writing he was hooked on a few weeks ago!

Week in the Life at Documenting Chaos - tuesdayThis was not part of the plan at all for this week. A flare-up of an old tooth issue had me contacting a colleague for an appointment. Not a fun time but it was good to catch up :)

Week in the Life at Documenting Chaos - tuesdayClose to $100 to fill my car. I expect that will seem cheap when I look back at this in years to come…

Week in the Life at Documenting Chaos - tuesdayAlmost home! I love it when we drive off the bitumen and onto the unsealed road. Our home is such a sanctuary – we can’t see or hear any neighbours or traffic and it is wonderful to relax there after a day at work.

Week in the Life – Monday

Week in the life at Documenting Chaos

I love this project. Every time I do it I love the way our everyday stories are recorded. Things that I would never think or bother to take photos of but which say so much about our life right now.

I’ve always done WITL digitally before but this year I bought one of Ali Edwards’ kits and I can’t wait to put the week together. I also have some wonderful digital brush script done by a very generous friend that will be featuring heavily throughout the week.

Week in the life at Documenting ChaosI use an Erin Condren planner at work and I took a photo of it at the beginning of the week. I will take one on sunday too when it will look a lot less tidy!

Week in the life at Documenting ChaosI had lunch with a great friend. Sharon is doing WITL too and I can’t wait to see how her’s turns out.

Week in the life at Documenting ChaosMonday is the change over day for my boys. I love it when Sawyer comes running after I haven’t seen him for a week.

Week in the life at Documenting ChaosI love this school run picture. Monday nights are always hyper and crazy.

I took a lot of photos today but the ones above were my favourites. Can’t wait to see what the rest of the week brings.

Project Life Week 43

Project Life Week 43 at Documenting Chaos What a crazy week! Lots going on – I seemed to be (in some cases literally) running from one place to another!

Project Life Week 43 at Documenting Chaos The excitement at the beginning of the week was our cat, Cardwell having 5 kittens on monday night. She was very matter of fact about the whole thing and has turned out to be an awesome mum. The ginger boy is my favourite :) We lost one of our other cats recently so he might be a keeper.

Flynnie’s school concert was on wednesday and entailed a mad dash across town for me followed by a sprint that got me there just in time!

Project Life Week 43 at Documenting Chaos On Friday I drove up to Cairns for a workshop and then Kindee flew up after work. I ended up using the Project Life app to make an insert of the trip:

Project Life Week 43 at Documenting Chaos The app is super easy to use – I did this in the car travelling backhand then just printed it out 8×8 to go into a page protector.

I’m very much looking forward to Week in the Life next week – my fourth time doing it. For more information click here to go to Ali Edwards’ site.

 

Project Life Week 42

Project Life Week 42 at Documenting ChaosThis is the last one I promise and then I will revert to my (previously) normal weekly posting. As I’ve talked about before, the only way that Project Life works for me is if I can stay absolutely up to date – even being one week behind sends me into a panic that I will never catch up!

Project Life Week 42 at Documenting ChaosMy first Story Stamp came from Ali Edwards this week. I have always loved her stamps and had previously subscribed to Technique Tuesday. Now she is selling her own digital and physical products I am spoiled for choice! Check out her site here. I used the ‘around here’ stamp on the weekly card and also the ‘love this’ on the grid card.

Project Life Week 42 at Documenting ChaosWe had a great weekend – the weather is warming up but it is still quite pleasant and we spent a lot of time outside. The pool is still a bit cold for me but the kids are in there multiple times a day.

See you next week :)

Project Life Week 41

Project Life week 41 at Documenting ChaosSo week 41! Something has gone a little funky with my numbering – I think I have duplicated a week somewhere. But this was definitely week 41 :)

Project Life week 41 at Documenting ChaosThe lunar eclipse was one of the highlights this week. We don’t have a lot of artificial lights around our property and the change in light as it went from full moon to blood moon was really noticeable.

Project Life week 41 at Documenting ChaosWe are decorating Sawyer’s room as a surprise for his 3rd birthday in a couple of weeks. We took the opportunity while the kids were away to get the ceiling and the walls painted. I’d forgotten how tiring decorating is!

I am so happy that although the kids are away every second week, their dad still sends me photos of their time with him. It’s important that I can document that part of their lives in my project life too.

 

 

Project Life Week 39

week39First of all a big thank you to everyone who visited after I posted week 38. I have had some lovely messages and comments from people who used to follow Documenting Chaos. It feels great to be back!

Week 39 at Documenting ChaosKindee went away for work this week – just for one night, but the first night we have not been together. I packed a secret card in her bag and she left little notes for me all over the house!

Flynnie was involved in a vacation programme all week at school which he loved. They did a mini colour run, had a wheels day where they could take their bikes and scooters (“I was the only kid with no stabilisers mumma!”) and a movie afternoon with popcorn.

 Project Life Week 39 at Documenting ChaosAt the weekend we went to pick up Jackson’s trampoline and cubby house which made for two interesting trips back along the highway. We went through bush fires on sunday too – deliberately lit and threatening people’s houses.

Thanks again for all your support x

 Project Life week 38 at Documenting ChaosWhat can I say? It feels good to be back :)

Such a lot has happened in our lives here at Documenting Chaos over the past 18 months that blogging took at back seat. I continued with my Project Life – purely digital for a while and then back to my usual hybrid style that you see here.

We seem to get busier and busier with each passing week but I’m going to give blogging a go again and see what happens!

 Project Life week 38 at Documenting ChaosSo this was a couple of weeks ago – a week with all the kids (the crazy weeks) and a good illustration of our particular brand of chaos!

 Project Life week 38 at Documenting ChaosA happy and colourful week, especially with the Color Run at the end of the week which was a lot of fun!

I am continuing to use a lot of Ali Edwards’ digital products and you can see many examples above. Check out her new site here.

I have a couple more recent weeks to add so be sure to check back soon.
