Free printable – Bullet journal/April

 

Sup guys! Just a quick post as i am really busy. Honestly, where has the time gone? I feel like i have done nothing today. Sunday i spent jut relaxing because last Thurs, Fri and Saturday  i was out in the heat. Friday killed me because of the monkey forest, being in the heat that long was a death trap! Saturday i had to meet mum, i walked two miles in the sun but it seems SO much when its warm. – But i have been relaxing my mind etc because i have been go go go with my novel and i feel like i need a break as it’s all i have been thinking about and doing.

I’ve been going out ALOT and walking, which is doing my back good as it doesn’t seem to hurt me straight away, give or take 4 hours it will hurt – But so do my feet. I am looking into getting some comfortable trainers, i want some converse. My current Nike ones are okay but i have a arched heel so i need those comfy soles.

Anyways, bit late on posting this as its the beginning of the week already!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SO hopefully you planners haven’t planned, and if you have then here it is anyway lol.

As usual, download with adobe PDF and print with Adobe not the IE pdf file viewer.
Print ‘actual size’ or scale to fit whatever it’s going into – The actual size is A5 so will fit the standard A5 bullet journals after giving it a quick trim.

Will catch up with posts this evening! I am so behind WHERE ARE THE HOURS GOING!?

 

*PLEASE note, depending on your printer – Colours may vary (Mine prints greenish blue)

My trip to monkey forest & slideshow

Hey folks! I feel i have been too busy to blog but the weather has been nice and my allergies have been playing up too, so it’s been making me feel like crap. Hoping to get some decent stuff as the tablets i have don’t work and i think i need some eye drops and nasal spray.
It’s been really glorious in the UK, bit of a random heat wave – Now i aren’t a fan of the heat so i don’t tend to go out in it, plus i have no nice clothes haha. All jumpers! Anyway, i wanted to go the zoo a few weeks back but couldn’t afford so we went to our local monkey forest.

It’s an amazing place, and if you ever are in my area (Stoke on Trent) please check out the monkey forest. It’s cheaper than the zoo and its a brilliant day out!
They also have a cafe, and shop – Though its a bit pricey, i did spend £20 on that teddy above but seeing as they take the monkeys and rehabilitate them and rescue them i think it’s only fair as its going to a good cause.

I love animals, i am hoping they have some job vacancies going as i would love to work here but i think they only ever have cafe assistant jobs. The bus ride is long and the walk from the bus stop to the forest is a pain but i think it would be well worth it!

I got my camera out today, finally put it into some use and managed to get LOTS of pics of the monkeys 255 in total but i deleted the blury ones and the rubbish ones. We managed to walk around for a good hour and a half and watched two feeds. I wanted to sit down a lot and relax but i honestly couldn’t stand the heat.

Hoping to go back again as a treat next month, but i am aiming for the zoo i  – I would also like to go to monkey world in Dorset.

I have no crafty WIPS just my writing but i thought i needed to blog as i don’t want to slip into not blogging when i don’t have much to say, thought i would post – BUT i know that some will see it as why post when you have nothing to say.. I like talking what can i say?

So this novel, i am calling it that for now as i still haven’t decided on a title. It’s taken over my life a little bit and i haven’t done any crafting, i can’t remember when the last time i practiced hand lettering or played with my water colours – Though i don’t think i feel guilty, i am enjoying my current writing process and so i want to get what i can done whilst my mind is focused.
That being said, writing is hard i knew that anyway but the fact i am being dead serious now is scary! I went from pancing my life away with random stories and words to actually sitting down and fully outling my novel. Which i have drafted over and over – I have written three chapters, printed them off and read them made some changes. Now i am ready to outline each chapter individually!

I bought some record cards or those things you read off when you are making a speech to do this and will have each chapter pinned up (somewhere) I also plan on doing this with my characters and a few reminds of the plot and description of the world/relationships etc etc.

Anyway, the real reason for me jumping on today is that well, my feed is full of craft blogs and photography which i LOVE LOVE LOVE and wouldn’t change who i follow for the world, i really want to connect and make friends with fellow writers – Maybe with similar taste, sci-fi, fantasy, thriller, YA etc.

If you are a writer – And by writer i mean WRITER you don’t have to be an author to write. Then drop me a hello in the comments, let’s connect. I am going to chill in bed later and scope out some writer/author blogs as well.
I have a Instagram that is separate from my craft page and you can follow that here >

Take care xo

 

(bake along tomorrow) – Crochet amigurumi mouse

Happy Saturday! I am a bit behind on everything, i had scheduled Friday to do my bake along but i ended up being really busy and tired, so i popped out today to get stuff and i had hoped to blog it but i honestly believe someone is fast forwarding time! The days are lighter but it’s still not good enough for me.

So i will be making my caramel tomorrow morning! I am eager because i have been watching GBBO from season 1 an taking in all the tips LOL

Anyways, meet this little guy! I started him a while back, probably Jan or Feb and kind of shoved him away because i couldn’t be bothered to sew him, i honestly had sewing together pieces of amigurumi it really annoys me and with this guy being a little bit smaller i was like nope can’t deal.

I saw a instagram post of Simplenaturalhandmade and i was like okay what is stopping me from finishing this little guy?
So i did, i got him done and he is ever so slightly cute – BUT i had trouble with this legs. I don’t read instructions when it comes to sewing parts together, i wing it because i don’t like being told LOL, so anyway i might of made the legs a bit too bit at the top thigh. Though i don’t think it makes a difference, his face is a bit off with the eyes but i think he’s cute.

Can’t believe a hair of mine is just chillin on him LOL 

I never did that type of nose before where you like thread it, but glad i did it because i will okay doing it when another pattern calls for it.
I’ve made him my official writing buddy, because he is small and he looks quite intelligent. I don’t have a name for him but if you can think of one let me know!

The pattern i used is by Bubbles and Bogo and it’s not expensive. I have a few of the patterns by these because i think they are ever so cute, and the unicorn one you might of seen me make a few times.

Well, that’s it for now i have been writing a lot and getting things done but i am tired this weekend i think i am exhausting myself by trying to get a million things done.

See you tomorrow with my bake a long!
