So here is our “Go Table”. We keep all the things we need to be able to grab when we are leaving the house, whether it be to go to work and school, or up the paddock. We had this table at our old house, and kept hats etc in a drawer and bags underneath.
|Please imagine a beautiful wooden floor and new paint – I do!|
Since moving to the farm I have added a basket which has water bottles, sunscreen and insect repellent in it. Sunscreen is a must outside, because we don’t have much shade. The water bottles are there to grab when we are taking the kids up the up the paddock (otherwise they invariably announce they are thirsty once we get there!). We also have a basket for collecting the eggs each afternoon. The girls take turns in collecting the eggs, and they are very eager about doing so!
One of the drawers has sunglasses etc in it, and another has homework supplies and is where Hannah puts her homework etc.
We also have an additional row of hooks along the wall near by. When winter comes, an outdoor coat is essential around here (it is freezing) so the coats and beanies will be hung here.
So as you can see, I am impressing myself (if no-one else) at how organised and grown up I am being!
P.S. Don’t you love these hooks! I saw some antique ones on eBay but they were going for an incredible amount, so I found these reproduction ones for about $7 each! Country Boy put them on some sanded back pallets for me!
