The pursuit begins....

I seem to spend an awful lot of time googling routines, reading about what others are doing, complaining that I cannot get into a routine and looking for some magic method to get me to write and stick to a routine that will make my life easier.

I can't be the only one! (At least that's what I tell myself.)

There are lots of things I want to do but for some reason seem to hold myself back or get waylaid in the detail rather than just doing. Or find an excuse. Or have to clean. Or...whatever. My main 'excuses' at the moment are Evie or work. I cannot spend time with Evie because I need to work. Or I cannot work because Evie won't go to bed. Neither of which are valid arguments really, both of which are starting to really get me down.

So, this is me stopping all excuses. I have a lot going on in the next few months and I want to enjoy it. But it is going to mean quite a bit of working, and I want to spend time with my family too, and my friends as I feel I've been a bit neglectful lately. My house (as ever) needs sorting out. As does the shop, my office, my clothes, my computer, my phone.....the list is long.

I have to start somewhere and waiting until the weekend or Monday is just putting if off unnecessarily - so here I am.

I have a daily routine, of sorts, that I follow most days, but I need to build a bit more into it. I need a weekly, monthly and cleaning routine and a way of following and managing them all - like my filofax. I need to make sure everything is written down.

In terms of this blog, you may notice I have changed its name, and it will become more themed around my pursuit of organisation. I will make a promise to blog at least once a week. That seems do-able at the moment.
