Christmas Presents

I love being organised. Il be honest, it doesnt always go to plan but I try all the same. My sister buys me the same diary every year (at my request!) and I love it, it has loads of columns for me to plan mine appointments, Nathaniels hectic social life, Slimming World note as well as birthdays, special dates etc. Its produced by Box Clever Press (links below) and I would be lost without it.

I also asked for Ferns Cotton Happy The Journal & Ruby Wax Frazzled. Im hugely into mindfulness and positive thinking. Not always easy when having a bad day and the old anxiety kicks in but in general seeing the good in a tough situation is the way forward. Not had chance to have a good look at these books yet but looking forward to filling in the journal every day.


Merry Christmas everyone!

Hope you've all had an amazing Christmas. Ive over indulged so much I actually feel quite ill. Why on earth I have to eat and drink so much over the holidays Il never know. Oh well time to face the scales tomorrow and see the damage. Im not too worried because I know getting back onto food optimising will soon see the pounds disappear along with the heart burn!
Less than a week to my evening group moving to a new venue and a new day. Im so excited, the new venue has loads of parking and is much bigger. Cant wait to get started.

I love Christmas

I love Christmas crafting, Ive made lots of new things this year but Im especially in love with these baubles and pinecone wreath. The baubles were just clear plain and I added some sparkly nail polish inside and swirled it around until I got the desired effect on both baubles then the pink one I decorated with a glue gun! The effect is gorgeous

The pinecone has been a labour of love. Lots of collecting cones, cleaning and drying them out then spraying twice with colour then again with sparkle spray. More drying out in the garage to get rid of the paint spray then eventually 7 glue sticks later and the finished project and I love it!
Merry Christmas

Its all in the planning!

I'm a super procrastinator, my head is full of things I have to, need to and want to do but just don't seem to find the time to fit them all in. Weeks whizz by and its just dawned on my that we are more than half way through the year & all the things I wanted to do this year I haven't! I like lists in fact I love lists. The problem is I spend ages making wonderful planners and hours filling them in organising my life but then don't follow them through. My intentions are great, I've got all the solutions to time management I just don't follow them through! 
This wee I decided to start again with yet another planner so on goes the computer at 8am ready to design and print off to find the laptop has a virus so Ive spent all day fixing that. Finally at 2pm I design and print off my new planner.
It's nice and simple and does exactly what I want it to do. I've road tested my daily planner and its working very nicely. Every morning or sometimes the night before I fill in my goals and must dos.  My goals are ongoing. I might not achieve all or even any of them today but they are my ultimate wishes and might be the same or I might have new ones tomorrow! 

Today's must dos are exactly that, these are things I have to do today & can't put off. 
The other two boxes are also self explanatory. I'm finding it very satisfying to put a big line through or tick next to the tasks Ive achieved & this week dare I say it Im feeling organised!
Feel free to use this planner for yourself.

Join me at my Tuesday Slimming World group in Great Wyrley to find out how you can eat fabulous healthy meals and lose weight.

Baby Daisy

We've had the kittens 6 weeks now. This is Daisy, she is still tiny unlike twin sister Minnie! She maybe tiny but she is a feisty funny little madam with bags of confidence.
