Get to know Sandie


Hello there,

I’m Sandie and I live on the beautiful Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia (you know the one … Beautiful one day! Perfect the next!). I share my life with my wonderful hubby, my three gorgeous girls (Miss 24, Miss 21 and Little Miss 15) and my huge extended family (at last count I have three sisters, 2 step sisters, 3 step brothers, 10 brother/sister in laws and 25 nieces and nephews and counting …). In fact there are so many of us now I probably have the numbers all wrong!!! So, as you can imagine, we’re a very busy family!

Some days run smoother than others. Some days there is harmony whereas other days, there is complete chaos! So let’s just say every day is an adventure! But despite our busy, hectic lives and the myriad of challenges that come our way, at the end of the day I count my blessings and am grateful … because we have our health, we have each other and our home is full of love.

Like most busy mums, I spend my days juggling part-time work, running the household, managing the family budget, trying desperately to get to the bottom of the washing basket and spending as much time as possible with my family and friends. I love to travel, cook, knit, sew, craft and read (magazines and books) and I have a growing interest and passion for photography. Oh, and did I mention, I also love chocolate and handbags (two obsessions that are close to my heart and that I indulge in far too frequently – oops – I guess the secret is out now!!)

And one of the things I am most passionate about is being organised and that’s why, many years ago, I earned the nickname “Mrs Organised” amongst family and friends. I’m definitely no expert but over time, I’ve learned a thing or two, so I’m happy to share all those tips, tricks, routines and ideas with my lovely readers. If you would like a clean, decluttered and more organised home, I hope you will find some ideas and inspiration here.

So join me on the rest of my journey – I hope to share, inform, encourage, motivate, maybe educate a little and inspire! I look forward to getting to know you better.
