Well, ​I Never!

I was aware of my friend, Carla’s YouTube channel, but thought it was only for her eBay reselling. I would watch from time to time because we don’t see each other often. Carla is in Bristol and I’m in Inverness. To be fair, the way things have been for the last few months, she could …

Reducing the chaos

As I said in my previous post, my planning is currently an absolute shambles, so I’m sitting down to sort it out. Before I do, I’ll show you what I’ve been carrying around with me, well I’ll start with the planners and notebooks. The portable pen collection is quite impressive, but I think I’ll save …

2019 Already

I’ve only just got into the idea of it being 2019. The last few months have flown past in a blur of work and Grannydom. I always seem to have too much to do. Actually, that’s not quite true. I mostly have too much to do and I have no motivation to do anything at …

The Joy of Wish

Oh! Wish! How do I love you? Let me count the ways… All kidding aside though, since giving up my job, Wish and AliExpress have been lifesavers. Not for things that I need, but for still being able to look forward to a parcel dropping through the door when I have very little money. I …

All Change Again

I’m just going to have to accept the fact that I chop and change when it comes to planners and diaries. I always stuck with my Malden until I discovered BuJo and more importantly, Leuchtturm1917 diaries. I absolutely love bullet journalling, but the problem is that because it’s easy to skip a few days and …

Making Friends

It really can be difficult to meet new people. I think most of the people I’d call friends live on the internet, but despite having a few of those I miss out on good old-fashioned proper social interaction. Having moved around a lot over the years, my best friends live a long way away. Even …

Squishety Squeeze…

I’ve blogged for years, I tend to do it in fits and starts ( as you may have noticed), the main thing that puts me off is something I’ve inflicted on myself. I separated all my interests into different blogs thinking that if they were more specific, it would suit my (if any) readers better. …

Day Per Page

I’ve always been a ‘week per view’ kind of girl. I briefly tried ‘week on one page with notes’ this year, but although I could make it work for me, it didn’t please me at all. The last couple of months, I’ve been writing more down than ever before, I’m trying to keep myself on track …

Sharing The Love

One thing that has driven me bonkers for the last couple of years is the fact that my ‘forgets everything, doesn’t know when the birthdays are’ husband refuses to carry a diary. Well, I’ve had a breakthrough. I gave him a Holborn slimline with month on two pages inserts and he’s actually using it! I …
