Getting Organised in 2019 with Danilo

[AD - Gifted]
One of the things I love most about the New Year is the motivation it brings to do better. I'm not necessarily into resolutions or the whole 'New Year, New Me' thing but I do like the idea of getting organised and setting goals. I have a few things I want to do differently this year, in order to get where I want to be but it's all going to come down to being organised.

For me, getting organised often means writing things down in a diary or planner and thanks to Danilo, I've already got the tools! Just before Christmas, they kindly sent over the official Great British Bake Off 2019 Diary (which comes complete with recipes to try) and the adorable Pusheen Desk Pad. I think the latter will be so useful for daily to-do lists and little reminders that will help me stay on track. If you're looking for a new diary, calendar or desk planner for the New Year, I definitely recommend taking a look at their selection. Danilo products are all officially licensed and there are lots of fantastic designs to choose from, whatever you're into!

I feel like all aspects of my life could do with a little more organisation at present but here are just three things I want to do more of in 2019...

Date nights

Something I really want to do this year is have a few more date nights with Josh. As much as we love Arthur (to the moon and back infinite times as I tell him every day), I think it's important to have time as a couple too. Whether it's going for dinner at a country pub or heading to a spa, it's just nice to spend some quality time together.

Meal planning

Another way I'd like to get organised in 2019 is with meal planning. Cooking is something I really enjoy but can find quite time consuming. This year I'd love to learn some new recipes and work them into some sort of rolling menu so we know what we need to order in our weekly shops. I'm lucky that as me and Arthur still live with my parents, I don't have to do all of the cooking but I'd like to make sure I'm doing my fair share. Plus, when we do have our own place with Josh, I imagine I'll be doing more of the cooking, so it'd be good to get organised for then!

Copywriting work

I'm hoping 2019 is the year I get my copywriting business back up and running. Don't get me wrong, I've been getting work but I really want to take things to the next level and try and get back to where I was (at the very least) before I had Arthur and things ground to a halt.

Something I find quite difficult is working from home, when I've also got Arthur to think about and take care of. He is of course (and always has been) my priority but at the same time, I've also got to try and make a living for us. It's helped that he's started nursery a few mornings a week, as I've gained some dedicated work time. I think I've just got to create a schedule for the week days, so that there's time for work and there's time for play. We're hoping that 2019 will be the year we get our first family home, so this is a real motivator for me to get my ass into gear and really make a go of it!

If you have any organisation tips or blog posts, feel free to share them below or tweet me @meganjane03! I'm thinking of picking up a copy of 'An Edited Life' when it comes out. I feel like I could definitely learn a lesson or two from Anna! But if you have any other recommendations, I'd love to hear them.
