Planning for Positivity

Planning for Positivity #1

As I sit watching the news about Paris, I wonder how on earth we are supposed to be positive and, as a mum, I wonder how I can stay positive for my children when they are asking me that question for which there is no answer, or not one that make sense....

Me, My Notebook and I

Me, My Notebook and I

As anyone who knows me will tell you, especially my husband, I have a real passion for stationery.  Put me in Staples or Paperchase for an hour and I am in my happy space. I have a huge array of notebooks and to be honest, most of them I bought...

Pinterest – Top Tips for Newbies

Like many of us, I joined Pinterest because it was new and seemed pretty.  I had no idea how to use it.  For the first six months, I wondered what all the hype was and why everyone seemed to be raving about it. Now, I am a social media junkie...

Five goals for October

I love October, it is definitely one of my favourite months.  It’s that Autumn feel, it’s my wedding anniversary, it’s my twins’ birthday and it is halloween – my kids’ second favourite holiday.

Getting Things Done …. with Evernote

This past three weeks has been very strange for me, I have actually had to stay home.  My children have had a full round of sickness bugs and then just one day after returning to school, we then received a full quota of chicken pox.  So I have had to...

Organised in Kent (or at least getting there)

Well, my mission to get organised continues. I have spent a lot of time reading blogs and tips. I have also spent many hours on my beloved Pinterest. I purchased a lovely A5 filfoax as phone apps were not doing it for me. I had discovered Astrid which I thought...

To do or not to do…..

As you all know by now, I am on a mission to get organised. If like me, you find it hard to say no when someone says “oh could you just…” or “wouldn’t it be great if we had someone who could ……..”, you will have lots of ideas floating...

One small step for man…..

How did I live without Pinterest? I spent 10 mins (or was it hours) yesterday looking at “organising paperwork/receipts” and I found some great ideas. I have to say though that I was amazed at the level some people go to – definite A types. However, one of my big...
