My planner doesn’t have a lot on this week as most of my time is going towards preparing for a trip away. However, I wanted to pop in and share the ‘Today Noted’ page I use. This is where I pile on the post it notes, odds and ends and lists for the day. It can get as full as I need by just clipping notes or stickies on there and is a great place for daily to dos.
The base of this page is some patterned paper from Amy Tangerine, trimmed and punched to fit in. Another strip of paper from the same pad grounds a white circle stamped with the typewriter from Hero Arts Moments To Remember set in Orange Peel. Layered over this is the Today die from Simon Says Stamp cut from Slate card. From the same Hero Arts set is the ‘noted’ flag stamped in Smoke. Onto this page I clip all my daily notes and scribbled messages; anything and everything that needs attention that day.
Bringing up our family is a partnership between my husband and I and I’m lucky that he is a Dad who takes an active role with the children and the home. The note on my Today page to write out the schedule for while I am going to be away – over 3 A4 pages so far! Take child A to place 1, drop of child B and get child C to place 2 … prepare on the go tea for child A before taking him to place 3 … get up at the crack of dawn pick up 3 other kids and take them to place 4 … and so it goes on. I so appreciate that I am able to take a few days away and that he has everything in control (even if he needs a schedule to achieve it LOL) and when I get home, I’m sure he will appreciate why my car clocks the miles it does!
OK, off to make sure I’ve got everything I want to pack clean and ironed :D
