A Sanity Saving SmartSign Design

When the SmartSign blogger challenge popped up on HIBS100 I knew straight away which sign I would be looking for.

We’re moving house next month (in the middle of the summer holidays with no childcare, while working from home – send cake) and so have a sign in mind.
Is it a family rules sign? No!
A “Beware those who dare to enter” for my pre-teen’s new room? No (although this might not be a bad idea)!
Perhaps something with a quote like “Sorry about the mess, my children are making memories”? No, sorry.

What am I looking for?
A miracle. It’s a miracle I’m looking for. You see, I am slightly outnumbered in my house. There is little old me, then are three boys (two boys and a husband).What I’m looking for, is a pee-free bathroom.

 This is the look of a mother who is frazzled, worn down and quite frankly worn out…. by boy pee. Parents of boys will feel my pain. I thought that a handy sign would remind my cherubs to WIPE THE DAMN SEAT so I that I wouldn’t have to yell “HAVE YOU WIPED AND FLUSHED?” up the stairs who be a wise choice. I’m pretty sure when I yell right now using my stern Mum voice that our current gentleman neighbour sits down to pee. I’m hoping to make a more refined impression on the new neighbours, at least for a little while until they really get to know us and so I put this sign together…

They’re not going to be able to ignore that looking down on them, are they? We can but hope!
I was quite tickled, on browsing SmartSign closer to find that great minds think alike as they have a similar sprinkle tinkle sign. If I’m chosen as a winner of this fab comp (this post is an entry into the #MyCustomSign www.smartsign.com blogger challenge) I would ask them to make mine up to fit with my decor for the new house or design one similar perhaps without the disapproving dog looking down (see below).

 

What do you think? It’s a winner, right? 

A Social Media Break

I’m taking a social media break for a week. I’ve a crazy busy work week from tomorrow and need some quiet, distraction-free, head-down writing time. I won’t be reading PM or DM messages but my emails will be open for anyone who feels the need to bypass social media and email me (i.e. for work). Family and close friends have my mobile number.

I haven’t done this for… ever, I don’t think. There’s a lot of noise everyone at the moment though, mostly digitally and with only one full week left before the school holidays start I need (and want) to focus on the work, and on me! 
Noise can be very pressing sometimes when you’re staring at a to-do list and can’t hear yourself think, let alone work.

Here’s to a blissfully quiet and productive week.
