“Set happiness as your major goal in life, and organize all your activities around it. ” (Australian spelling is organise) Most people think that organising is hard work, but it can also be extremely good fun. Recently one of my best friends and I organised a girls weekend away with our tennis team, in order to celebrate her 50th birthday. We divided the eight girls into teams of two, created costumes for each team to wear, and bought prizes for the awards ceremony to be held at the completion of a competition consisting of several games that together my friend and I had devised. Much alcohol was consumed and many, many laughs were had. We spent many enjoyable hours on the surprise planning of this event and were duly rewarded by the girls thanking us, telling us they had never laughed so much and that they had really had an awesome time. For us it was just as much fun to organise as it was to participate…
On another tangent, if you are a Mum of multiples, organise becomes a key word in your household. I very quickly realised that without organisation, I would not get anything done and would certainly never leave the house. I would have the nappy bag packed the night before, dinner prepared at 9am, bath clothes laid in the hallway ready for the nightly bath at lunchtime and a pile of nappies always folded ready to use. It’s hard to believe when you look at me now, but back then my middle name was organise!
“Oh twins! Two for the price of one….”
“No, two for the price of flipping two. Have you ever tried putting two kids in one car seat? ”
