Fairytales – The Blog

20131213-Fairytales-School-Holiday-Sanity-Savers-titleimage With most schools closing for the holidays this week we thought we would share not 5 but 10 School Holiday Sanity Saving ideas from Pinterest because we need all the help we can get with the kids sometimes!!! There are hundreds nee thousands of pins on this subject, these are just some of our favourites.

Xmas balloons Stuff. Most of us simply have too much of it. We’re all aware of that. It's that time of year again . . . when millions of dollars are spent on items that the recipients simply don't want.  Unwanted gifts often end up cluttering up homes for years to come and sadly will eventually end up in landfill. But with relatives and kids and dear friends in need of thanks… how can you get through Christmas without buying small mountains of not-really-needed things?

20131122-Pinterest-has-Christmas-CoveredHave I ever told you how much I love Pinterest?  Well I do (nearly as much as I love hubby – happy birthday handsome xxx)

Birthday boy is able to attest that a large number of my sentences start with “I saw this thing on Pinterest…” From a Professional Organiser’s point of view Pinterest is heavenly – you have the chance to “pin” ideas and things you love.  To quote from the about page of the site itself – “Pinterest is a tool for collecting and organizing things you love” (you can tell that is legit from the spelling).

Aneeta Whey I would like to introduce you to Aneeta Whey... For long time followers of our Facebook page you may remember us asking for name suggestions for our fairy mascot.  We had some great suggestions at the time but we couldn’t go past the fun play on words suggested by a lovely friend of mine Merena Riley, so thank you again Merena for your great suggestion.

I’d like you to meet THE HARDIES - I tried to get my family tree in one image but I needed a magnified glass to see it.

My mum is one of 11 kids, she has 5 brothers and 5 sisters. My grandmother passed on very early and when my pop passed on in 1975 he had eleven surviving children.  Today he has 139 living descendants…can you imagine our family reunion?! No imagination required …you can check back in with me next year as I am actually organising (there is that word again) a big reunion in April 2014; wish me luck.
