Friday is the day we ..?! A murphy bed in Brussels plus Flyady hygge Christmas planning mission 20!

Coming up in today’s Newsletter! Hygge Christmas Flylady planning mission number 20 and our goals for Friday! Hope you’re enjoying some nice weather today? Vibeke and I had our skinnydip seaswim this morning in the wind and rain…hair-raising fun! LOL! Sea temp today was 10c/50f and the air was 8c/46f

Friday is here and it’s time to wrap up the week and prepare for the weekend ahead. We all need to rest and recharge – whatever that looks like for you and your family! Today’s focus is to spend a few minutes decluttering your handbag and car. Set a timer for 5 minutes and see how much clutter you can find! I’m removing shopping receipts, extra lipsticks (how do I always end up with so many in one handbag?!) and snotty hankies.

Spend a couple of minutes tidying out your handbag/purse

It’s also Date Night – be deliberate and take time to nurture your relationships! Hubby and I like to stay home on Fridays and tonight our kids are coming round for a special dinner (it’s Mortens Aften tonight = St Martin’s Eve). The tradition here is to eat duck!

Oh, and who needs a laugh today? Here’s today’s hygge Christmas planning mission – number 20! It was fun for me to rewatch this video…I was on a trip to Brussels, Belgium, to visit good friends/colleagues (from my days working at the European Supreme Court in Luxembourg in the 1990s) and you can see me making up the murphy bed in my Brussels hotel room! LOL! Did you make YOUR bed this morning?! Go do it! Then make yourself a nice warm cuppa or hot cup of coffee, grab your pen and notebook or Flylady Holiday Control Journal (see the bottom of the Newsletter for a link) and tap below to watch the video. Let’s hygge!

Hygge Christmas planning

And a final word about our hygge Christmas planning missions… They are straightforward and won’t leave you feeling overwhelmed. A little bit each day, and you’ll have a calm and collected holiday season. You can find my check-off list here (a Canva template you can modify). But you don’t need a list to start: watch today’s video, move your bahookie and start! If you miss a day or two, don’t go back. Just keep moving forward! We will have Super Missions in December…

The Flylady has a FREE workbook which you can download for free here. (Also useful for planning a wedding, Hannukah, baby shower, Ramadan, etc) I show you how to use it in this video…
