The Versatile Blogger Award

I was very recently nominated in ‘The Versatile Blogger Award’ tag by the lovely Michelle over at Ugly Bug Does. Thank you Michelle. I don't really know many people in the blogging world who share the same interests so this is a lovely way to get to know people behind the blogs. Trying to think of 7 facts is quite hard to do.

Why did it have to end?

Coffe Jar Vase Hack

I love coffee and drink it everyday so I go through a lot of jars a month. I always feel really bad throwing them away and wondered what I could do with them instead?

Washi Hot Air Balloon

My head is often in the clouds dreaming, planning and deep in thought. Ironic really considering I’m scared of heights.

It was a gorgeous day, Noah was in school and Florence was down for her afternoon nap. I seized the opportunity to sit in the garden and have some me time. I grabbed my Rose Platinum Webster’s pages traveller’s notebook (wow that’s a mouthful) the cheapest set of watercolours as I am not an expert and I don’t know how to paint and some washi tapes from my huge collection.

Oh yeah wait a minute Mr postman.

Look what arrived in the mail!

Hypothyroidism can kiss my......

I'm exhausted and have planned in my head and written this blog when I should be sleeping! Everyone is tucked up in bed as its 2.30am but hey I have hypothyroidism so my body sticks to fingers up at sleeping at night. It wants me to sleep during the day when things need to be done, children need to be taken to school and errands are sky high.

I'm certainly no April fool- April Goals

Setting goals is my plan for this month. I plan every week but don't set myself goals. As I suffer from anxiety I don't get out much and my weekly spreads mainly focus on my children's activities rather than my own. I look at it on a Sunday night after I've finished and think pull yourself together and do things for me. So I'm setting goals and see where it takes me.

So here are my goals:

* family time- I'm a working mum, wife, I run a non profit organisation and constantly running around after my children with after school activities and clubs so family time is so important to me this month. I really want to spend quality time with them before they grow up and I don't get that opportunity again. My husband and I have booked a long weekend away with the children and we're going to focus all our attention on them. Switching off from the world in the lovely Lake District. No phones, Internet etc. That's a massive thing for me but it needs to be done. We have so much planned and I can't wait. Going for lovely walks, swimming, visiting cute shops and having fun. That's the main aim of this trip.

Easter Eggcitement with my Kikki K

Some of you may have already seen my YouTube video on this beautiful yellow goodness but I thought I would write a little blog post as I'm in love. If you have not seen it go check it out here: Kikki K Planner Unboxing

Anxiety/ Depression, Planning and Me

I thought I would use this blog post to introduce myself.

My name is Hayley and I am a mum of two Noah aged 6 and Florence who is one, wife to my amazing hubby Rob and a planner addict. I am still really new to the planning community and I have got to say I am very impressed at what I have seen so far.

The Reset Girl Haul

I'm still relatively new to the planning community so my sticker collection is, well it's non existent to be honest. I really want and need to build my collection and have a list of functional stickers I need already.
I've been admiring The Reset Girl stickers for a while now but being in the UK postage was always a biggie. I'm finding a lot of sticker makers are in America so sometimes postage costs more than the stickers them selves.

How many is too many planners?

I thought I would start my first blog with that age old question. How many is too many planners?
Well I don't think you can have too many. I love swapping and changing after all who sticks with the same handbag or shoes every day?

 Here’s an introduction to my relatively small collection in comparison to other people that I follow on instagram or facebook. I just love all the different colours to choose from but I can say one thing I am definitely a personal size planner girl. I just cannot get along with an A5 size. I wish I could as there are some beautiful ones out there.
