Daily prompts: A Plot Of Land

You’re given a plot of land and have the financial resources to do what you please. What’s the plan?

Well, firstly that depends on how big the plot of land is and where it is.  But, assuming it’s fairly large and maybe by a river or has a lake I would build a ranch and room for lots of animals.  I’d also build a dirt track 🙂

It would be in the States somewhere too.

Penpalling… with a difference…

Some of you reading this may know me, some of you may not. Some will know I write US inmates. It’s a very rewarding “hobby” in knowing you can help to bring about change in someone’s life, to encourage them and to make their day by just receiving a letter or card in the mail. The beautiful artwork and poetry I receive is just a bonus.

If anyone is interested in finding out more about how to do this or just to ask me why then please comment below, or check out the Facebook group for LostVault https://www.facebook.com/groups/554747104639878/

Diaries and planners

I’m a very fussy person when it comes to diaries.  Over the years I’ve tried the simple ones you buy in the usual stores, the pretty covered ones from stationery stores and even very expensive Filofax ones.

I think I may have discovered the perfect diary – for me at least 🙂

This is my new Erin Condren Life Planner (if you click through the link and purchase you and I both get $10 off!!!).  It has space for everything I need to write in the day and the great thing I’ve come to love is space at the weekend.  As a radio ham and NASCAR fan I need space at the weekends to write down contests and racing schedules, this planner gives me space to do that.

Below is my new weekly desk planner, it’s huge!  17 inches / 43 cms wide and 11 inches / 28 cms high.  You can personalise this too, I just wanted my name put on it but you can have any text you like and a photo in the top right hand corner.

Finally, these are the amazing interchangeable covers.  Yes, interchangeable covers!!!  Erin has a huge range on her website which you can personalise just like I’ve done, even adding a photo if you wish.  They are so easy to change, you just pull them off the planner then push the new one back on.  You get front and back covers.

So, if like me, you’re a fussy person when it comes to diaries/planners then Erin Condren Life Planners could solve a problem.  I also got some free stickers (decals to my USA friends) which was a nice touch.  I’m discovering that a few people are selling things to decorate your planner with, specific to fit Erin Condren Life Planners.  I’m now busy sorting my washi tape, deco tape and stickers (decals!) out and checking out ideas online, just search Instagram using #eclifeplanner14 #eclifeplanner15 #planneraddict

(I’m in no way associated with Erin Condren, I have to thank OrganizedJen for her original review on the planner.  After hours *literally* over a weekend Googling planners and diaries I finally narrowed it down to the Erin Condren)

Post A Day: Waiting Room

“Good things come to those who wait.” Do you agree? How long is it reasonable to wait for something you really want?

Sometimes yes, sometimes no.  It really depends on the situation, but sometimes you just have to wait for something, like mail, results etc.  As for how long is reasonable, well that depends on the situation too.  If it’s mail then you kind of know how long you have to wait depending on how fast/slow the mail is in your country or when it was posted. If it’s results then you know roughly when they’re due out and where you have to go to get them whether it be a school/college/university or online.

Posting this because I’m literally 2 miles from it, I can see the smoke billowing across the sky from my house.  Pics courtesy of: Ruje Yasmin, Sovereign FM, The Telegraph, BuzzFeed UK, Daily Mirror, BBC News
