How Organisation is Helping me with Direction in 2017

This week has been one of organisation. From considering the direction of the blog, to planning out what linky’s I’d like to join in more with and deciding on what outings we are going on with the children this year. You can read my words for the year and goal posts here



Having been unable to source a month to view diary in hardback form from a supermarket I decided to print out one from the internet. Sadly the one I chose seems to have been used in 2016 as well as destined for 2017 as some of the printed pages read last year on them while others read 2017! I'm hoping it won’t be too problematic.

I'm also considering printing out some blogging pages too and inserting them into the folder too. Everything’s Coming Up Rosie produced this post earlier on in the week so I've been looking through it and considering which one I should opt for. What do you think?

Finally, this week has seen our youngest trying to direct everything into her mouth including my hair! She’s also started to roll across the floor so the eldest has been trying to direct the youngest into crawling by showing her how it is done.

  2. You are sounding very organised, with clear direction. I wouldn't be without my blog diary and bujo, so I know how paper can help you feel organised! Thanks for sharing with #WotW

  3. I think I'd love to have direction too as my word of the week. It's lovely to be so organised. I'm afraid I'm completely the opposite at the moment :( #wotw

  7. We have a month to view diary which is perfect for our family diary of appointments. I also have a wall chart for the full year for all my blog posts I fill in with a white board pen. It's a great way to keep organised. I'd be sunk without being organised. I hope your printed out planner works for you. #fortheloveofBLOG

  9. I'm definitely aiming to be more organised this year. I'm using bullet journaling and a Midori travellers notebook which I'm printing booklets for myself. It seems to be working for me so far x

  10. I bought a personal organiser and a family planner to help me get organised this year and so far it has been working brilliantly! It takes time and energy, but less time and energy than being late, disorganised and stressed would take! Good luck with your plans :) xxx #fortheloveofBLOG
