Planning Jan-Jun 2020

It being slap-bang in the middle of the year, this seems like a good time to reflect on what I am enjoying right now about my planner setup, not to mention what has changed or not changed since the beginning of the year.

Knit-Read-Blog

This morning I have completed all the knitting on Gaudi. Hurrah! I must say, laying all the pieces out on my bed to photograph makes me feel more confident about the finished object than I have been in a fair while.

Strike up the band!

I like to think I go my own way in life; stand apart; never follow the herd; make considered choices. Every so often, though, I'm right there, leaping onto the bandwagon and waving a flag with the rest of the human race. So, deep breath, I am experimenting with turning my phone screen to monochrome… Continue reading Strike up the band!
