About Us

One of the reasons that I decided to relaunch this blog, and start sharing our family activities and routines is because, over the years, I have found so much inspiration from other bloggers.

If not for other parents sharing their craft ideas, I wouldn’t have had a clue where to start with creating fun and educational activities for my daughter. The same can be said for all the other planner bloggers who have inspired (aka: enabled) me along the way, and for the flylady and other women like her, who taught me step by step how to keep a clean home.

So before we get started and you begin to explore the pages of this blog, I want to thank the bloggers who came before me.

I admit that most of the ideas in this blog aren’t my own, they grew from seeds sown by other parents and planners and blog posters around the world.

So thank you all for sharing your ideas and your lives. I am better for it.




Now.. about us…

I am a 34 year old freelance writer, married to a 34 year old Aspie chef.

Our daughter Juniper, is a spirited, intelligent and brave girl.
She is also an Aspie, so in our household I am the one who is not ‘neuro-typical’ – and that’s just the way I like it!

Aside from my little family, I’m passionate about planning – I’m desperately in love with my Filofax! – I love getting things organised and having everything in its place.
I also have a small-medium online shopping addiction.. and I mainly buy things to help me clean, organise, or run our home – either that or fun crafty stuff for Juniper.

This is a place to share my adventures in motherhood, in planning and in life.

Wherever my adventures takes me, I’ll be here sharing the journey with you – oh imaginary blog reader. Wish me luck.




Time to start exploring?

    1. Hi Charlotte, Thanks so much for your comment!! You made my day.

      My VDS is an A5 Manager size with 35mm silver rings. The leather is 6202 (outside) and 6219 (inside)
      I got it with no stiffening material inside, no contrast stitching (just regular brown on brown and turquoise on turquoise), blind embossing inside the front cover on the bottom left and an extra pen loop.

  2. Just found your blog and it was exactly the inspiration I needed right now, setting up my filofaxes.. Thank you very much 🙂

  3. I’m enjoying your blog site. I’m a hopeless organizer wanna-be….but I haven’t given up and this site has already helped me plan for a planner.
