Sunshine in Wales
It’s a lovely warm day here in North Wales, and I’m enjoying a spot of sun in my garden. I have a cat stretched out on my lap, J is doing some gardening (strange man, actually enjoys it) and S is doing one of her Sudoku puzzles (strange woman, actually enjoys them)
I feel like I might be starting to fight my way out of the darkness. I can still feel it pulling on my ankles but I’m mostly reaching for the surface. Afternoons like this help. I also managed to conquer my inbox and finish my to-do list. It’s a pretty big list but a lot of it is a list of ebay shops that I’d like to check out and some money off codes and stuff.
The ebay shops are all for planning stickers. Have I mentioned recently my love for planners and organisers and the bullet journal system? My Leuchttrum dotgrid journal came in the mail this week but I don’t want to use it yet until I’m completely happy with how I’m doing it. I’m just using a cheap grid notebook with a faux leather cover. I’m mostly happy with my collections, my monthly/weekly/daily spreads but it’s mostly just refining them. I’ve also been watching a metric ton of planwithme videos on youtube and strangely I find them incredibly relaxing and calming, but it’s also made me want to do that style of planning with the kits and so I kind of ordered myself a MAMBI Happy Planner but it’s on back-order.
When I actually set up properly, I’ll totally take pictures and stuff and share how I’m using it. I’m not creative or artistic and I have crap handwriting so mine don’t look anywhere near as awesome as some of the ones I see but I’m trying really hard not to compare myself. I should be proud of what I’m creating!
I’ve started making a draft of the post about discipline vs punishment and I’m hoping to get that posted later this evening. Although J is talking about firing up the barbecue if the weather stays this could so that’s always fun too!
