I know the weekend was probably great and you didn’t want to wake up this morning because Monday always happens after Sunday 🙈
So I’ve found a few positive quotes about Mondays
If you wallow in the fact it’s Monday you won’t get stuff done so go out and create the life you want.
I like to think of every week as a fresh, so Mondays are just that. Fresh starts to do great things with your life.
If you don’t have a plan for the days ahead you have no vision. So get planning.
I love this song. It’s a reminder that it takes a little effort but if you put your back into it you can do it, do it, DO IT. sorry was breaking out into song then 😂
Happy Monday… Make yours motivational physically and mentally.
For those of you that liked listening to my podcast I have just uploaded one to get your thoughts going of what you want from life in 2020 and beyond.

Let me know your thoughts.
This post can apply at any time but I think January is the optimum time to do it.
Of course having one diary can of course be helpful… But sometimes if you are a stationery addict and like getting your shit together then include some of these kind of notebooks/ journals below.
So this is a weekly spread type diary. Where you can quickly note down what you have to do or have done. I like to use this for keeping track of when my blog posts have been published. To look back on the topics with ease. Love the little note section on the opposite side, really helpful.
This is my book I write in every night. It has a space at the top to write what went on in the day, you could even draw there instead. It also asks you a question that gets you thinking. I like the concept of that.
This notepad only arrived yesterday and I was so excited. It has so many pages and 10 sections. Got to plan what subjects are going in there. It was really affordable and can be used for literally anything.
Lastly I have a 5 minute ls before bed journal which I don’t think would see you through the year so it’s one to more down special things in. I want it to be a positive thought provoking one. But you can use them as you wish. I had it for Christmas but I am pretty sure Paperchase still do it.
Am I the only stationery obsessed one around here, i hope not.
Welcome to the year 2020, I hope you started yours off positively.
I thought I’d let you know a few things about how Holzieloves.co.uk is going to be this coming year.
In just under 3 weeks I am down for my operation. I will try and schedule some posts in whilst I am in dopey land but forgive me if i don’t comment straight away.
When my heads straight after the op I will be bringing you posts to inspire, educate and entertain you as before, but hopefully even better.
I will try and cover as many topics as I can.
I want to include videos and possibly add more podcasts again (this is still to be confirmed in my mind lol)
If you are a new reader or a returning one leave your blogs down below and I’ll go check them out 😘
Giving back at Christmas.
Me and my mum are so fortunate to have a roof over our head at the most celebrated time of the year.
Also to be lucky enough to have a big ass roast dinner. Some people don’t have any of these luxuries.
So this year we both decided to donate £19 to the Salvation Army so they can feed someone this Christmas day and keep them warm at the same time.
I prefer to give than receive at Christmas so this warmed my heart being charitable.
If you feel like you want to do the same have a nosey on
THE SALVATION ARMY WEBSITE
Do a random act of kindness this December.
I thought I’d write a poem today which will most likely make a feature in my book once I put it together…
Let me know what you think
It’s not what you look like, it makes you stand out I know, but does it show just who you are deep down, I think no.
Don’t be superficial and just go on looks alone, the person who you are seeking should like you for you, if not tell them to go.
Standing in front of the mirror, does it show how you feel, your happiness inside you spinning on an imaginary wheel?
Don’t worry about the outside it is not to be approved, because once you have undressed it.. all has been removed,
So worry about the inside of you before you decorate the out.
Tell the vanity inside of you to hurry up, get out.
You know when you have all your pretty notebooks you don’t want to use because you just want up admire them and keep them fresh…
So you get yourself a boring notebook and it just doesn’t scream use me so just gets pushed to one side.
I thought why not use that lonely book and make it look simple but pretty at the same time so here is what I decided to go with.
A piece of pink card, some double sided adhesive tape, some sticker paper, a quote and there you have it. A couple of hearts drawn on for good measure.
You don’t have to be good at crafts, just use your imagination a bit.
Go as crazy as you like…

Happy Thursday 😘
