Today’s post is more of a general catch-up really! Now that autumn is upon us my mind is turning to planning the next few months. Sorting my wardrobe out and getting a bit more organised at home now my daughter is back at school and my son has started work full time. I’ve got a few things going on:
I’ve read a lot recently about Bullet Journals. They are all over Pinterest and there is a fab website where it all began (www.bulletjournal.com). The idea being that all my to do lists, my projects, ideas and events are all recorded in one place. I’ve tried various versions of this idea before but I still end up with scrappy bits of paper all over the place. Today’s task is to see if I can set up my own Bullet Journal. Of course I might be able to make it look pretty but the ultimate test is in using it – and will I still be using it in 6 months’ time. I’ll let you know.
Today I am posting the invitations to my 50th Birthday Party! Yep despite writing about it here, I decided to have a party! I’ve never thrown a proper party for myself, in a lovely venue, with music and dancing and all my family and friends in one room. I didn’t have a big wedding either so here I go. I am very excited and of course you will be hearing lots about my plans in the coming weeks. Most importantly I need to find a fantastic dress.
In the next week or so I will gradually siphon out my very lightweight summer clothes from my wardrobe. Some will be stored for next year, some will be heading for the charity shop or eBay, and I will then take a look at my early winter clothes and see what I want to keep and what new items I need. I do a lot of shopping online but I also love to have a wander around the shops and I am off to Windsor next week with a friend so I suspect I may come back with a few purchases.
I have moved onto SAS from The Body Coach. This is the graduate programme; you can only do it if you have completed the SSS plan. It is an ongoing monthly subscription, so you decide each month if you want to carry on. I am just starting week 2 of month 1. I am still aiming to lose some body fat and inches. It is slow and steady but that way it is more likely to stay off and settle into a lifestyle change.
For me September is more of a new year than January. It is when the children go back to school and autumn just feels more like the beginning and I like planning the year ahead. Holidays are mostly done and we can think about Christmas and planning our next holidays.
Have a lovely day everyone.
