The end of the holidays and a little help needed


Our kids start school next Monday, except for the one starting kindy on Thursday. We’re trying to make the most of the last few days of the school holidays; my husband’s taken today and tomorrow off work so we can spend a nice long weekend together and I can get a couple of last-minute back-to-school jobs done.

Holiday time is the best. I’m excited about the year ahead but a bit sad to have so much open-ended time come to an end. My eldest daughter and I easily found a free afternoon this week to make this little origami butterfly canvas, as a birthday present for one of her friends.

For a first-time effort we thought it was pretty good, what do you reckon?

After finishing it I realised that even though I hadn’t done it by myself I’d just basically crossed one of the last remaining items off my 40 by 40 list, which was nice.

I’m coming around to the idea that doing things all by myself is over-rated anyway.

Which brings me to my question: Can I ask a favour?

One nice little thing I do is help manage a Facebook page for CathFamily, an online magazine for parents and educators. The page is here.

The actual e-mag subscriber numbers are healthy and growing each week, but the number of Facebook page likes could do with a little boost to really get it going. In fact I would love to at least get three new likes right now, to bring the total number up to 200.

If you aren’t already getting CathFamily in your FB timeline, go to the CathFamily Facebook page and like it. Some extra shares would be great too.

You’ll receive:

  • Updates when each edition comes online
  • Links to some of the individual stories and activities from the e-mag
  • Other interesting and inspiring stuff from around the web for people who want to, or help us to, create a faith-filled, Catholic culture at home.
  • My gratitude 🙂

There’s also a pretty awesome Pinterest page.

Thank you!
