MAKE 2018 YOUR YEAR

Please don’t look back at this year in disappointment at what went wrong or what you didn’t achieve.

The past can not be changed but you can shape your future.

2018 will be your year if you put the effort in. It’s not just going to do itself…very few are that lucky.

Take it a month at a time and aim to write some goals down that you want to smash. make them manageable, break them down into points if needed. Trust me it’s so much easier. Don’t go overboard with too many goals maybe 3/4 is a sensible number.

Grab yourself a diary/ planner to write down all the things in the week you have to do. So you got your organisation on paper as the head can get a bit muddled at times. I had my planner pictured below for my birthday and I have made use of it every day since. It gets you into a routine and when you have completed all that’s on your weekly page you can feel accomplished which in turn makes you feel happier.

This one is from Hobbycraft but there’s so many out there to choose from you are spoilt for choice really.

You also want to make plenty of memories too and this little D.I.Y is perfect for anyone at any age. Grab a empty jar, you choose how big you want it. Write on a label something about memories or find some printables online like i did and stick it on your jar. Then start making memories – don’t forget to write them on a piece of paper and put them in your memory jar. When it is full or at the end of 2018 you can read them all and smile.

The Week Ahead

Well I thought I would make this post a weekly thing. Which will be a summery of last week and a look at the week ahead.

We all know things don’t always go to plan as last week I blogged every day but I was recovering in bed from swollen glands and low blood pressure but I didn’t want it to get in the way of my passion for writing. Plus it peed it down for the majority of the week so I wasn’t overly fussed. However the week did end on a happy note my brother, his partner and baby girl visited and we managed a stroll into town. Then we went to my uncles for a lush roast dinner. If you’re not from England you are seriously missing out.

So today’s Monday it’s 23 degrees which is rare for British people but long may it last that’s all I say. We are having our garden made over the best input I get to do is paint the shed a pretty colour so I’m looking forward to when I can get stuck into that. I purchased a hula hoop so it’s my new hobbie and I aim to be a pro by the end of the summer. Wishful thinking 🙂

Whatever else the week brings let’s hope it’s all positive.

Gonna go grab the sun cream as pale old me doesn’t fancy sunburn. I hope you all have a fabulous week.

Much loves 😘

DIY Laptop Cover

So you buy a laptop and you suddenly get bored of the colour, or it looking so normal. Ok I’ve had mine nearly a year so I haven’t just defaced it.

DISCLAIMER: THIS DIY IS SAFE FOR YOUR LAPTOP AND IS REMOVABLE AT ANY TIME

Here are the things you will need

Oh and some scissors. They are the most important as without them you’d of botched it up straight away.

  • Roll your sticky back plastic out and place your laptop on top
  • Cut around it being sure you have enough leave a bit extra
  • Peel back a corner and place at the top and gently work down pressing any bubbles out of it on the way.
  • When it’s on completely go around the outside and tidy up with a small pair of scissors.
  • Use the hairdryer on a low setting to soften the edges to stick to the laptop to give it a more finished look.


There you go you now have given your laptop a lovely makeover and a bit of individuality. Totally unique to you.
