At the end of this month, Philip and I will be celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. I can hardly believe it’s been two decades since we said ‘I do’, and if you include the on-and-off dating before that, we’ve pretty much been together for 25 years. We met when I was 19 and he was 21.Read More

Everyone Has a Story

On Wednesday morning I had the opportunity {through a weekly women’s group I attend called Sisters} to listen to a speaker I really admire. The speaker was Lizzy Milani and every time she speaks I choose to sit up and listen. She oozes wisdom and couples it with great wit which always keeps my attention. Her messages are well thought out and her attention to detail is definitely appreciated. This particular message was about Kindness and in her message she weaved in a story that she had read on a blog and I was quickly reminded of a story I had written and a time where I was touched deeply.

We are really happy to have Heavenly Order on board as well. Heavenly Order is about making your life run as smoothly as possible, no matter what the circumstances. Being organised is not about perfection, it’s about being prepared for life. We offer hope to the overwhelmed and tired! Sarah Cottman, owner of Heavenly Order, has personally overcome the confusion and chaos that comes with Chronic Disorganisation.

Need Rescuing? Well, Clutter Rescue is here and ready…. Helen from Clutter Rescue says, ‘I’m just like you – juggling everything that comes into my life, some times succeeding, sometimes just coping.’ Clutter Rescue has been created in an effort to bring much needed help your way, they provide real honesty and advice from a woman who walks in the same shoes as you! Their website is for busy Mums wanting more balance in their lives. Helen understands that it might seem strange thinking that getting organised, having a decluttered space and schedule, and having helpful kids will give you more balance – but her promise is that it will!

I can personally recommend this company to you as I have used them in my own life. 1-800-Got-Junk are a wonderful organisation that come in and help sort out your space in a way that is like no other. Their staff are trained exceptionally and truly understand what it means to be overwhelmed by your stuff or simply time poor. In my case, we were moving countries and at the end of the packing we had one ‘storage’ room that contained the leftovers or the things that didn’t have a home. We needed help and we needed it quick. A call to 1-800-Got-Junk and they were there in a professional moment, ready and willing to help us rid ourselves of the excess.

Additionally, 1-800-Got-Junk has partnered with us in Canada when we hosted Peter Walsh for our #CalgarySpringClean Live Event. 1-800-Got-Junk were on board and at the venue ready to collect gently used items that our attendees generously donated to WINS (Women’s in Need Society). Again, their professionalism and kind service were greatly appreciated. At every turn and with every experience 1-800-Got-Junk has delivered more than they have taken away and we are grateful for their partnership.
