I am revisiting an old habit - essentially the mantra of “what I get done today, I won’t have to do tomorrow”.


Textbooks lobbed this week for the start of the academic year, which, for me kicks off next week.

The cooler days, while a welcome relief from a string of hot, sticky days, is a reminder autumn is around the corner.

Long sunny days are disappearing. Where I was waking to noisy cicadas and bright skies at 5am, the alarm now goes off in the dark.

I have pulled out seeds for planting an early autumn crop and already been through my wardrobe to make way for winter woollies.

I am also revisiting old habits. When there were children at home, the more I got done the night before the smoother the next day went. I'm back on that bandwagon - sans children.

How's the start of a new year been for you? What habits are you shifting? Are you ready for a change in season?

  1. The mornings are certainly getting darker...still very hot here though 41 degrees today. My habits and routines are certainly shifting with our schooling arrangements changing. Suddenly I feel like I have more head space to organise, sort and give things priority. I am certainly thinking about autumn food! Interesting links as always, thank you!

  3. Not easy Suzie, and in age of always streaming information and 'entertainment' can be a really hard habit to shift.

  4. Tha start of school brings back routine and structure to my house and, while it's busy, I am trying to be kind to myself and keep calm! Good luck with those textbooks.
