To Do List: September


+ Finish reading the books on my Uni reading list. I've been trying to squeeze in as many other books as I could, but I'd like to have read every set book once before the craziness begins again.
+ Go to my cervical screening appointment. Update: after putting it off since I received the letter at the end of last year I brought my appointment, which was supposed to be this week, forward to the end of last month. It took a couple of minutes and honestly, I thought it was even less scary than going to the dentist!
+ Organise, organise, organise - lots of little notebooks help with this enormously! 
+ I'm falling into a routine of posting on alternate days on both of my blogs and I'd really like to keep that going. I think dedicating time to something I love is as important as investing time in the things I have to do.
+ Keep making time to light a couple of candles and relax. It's okay to take half an hour and not do anything at all.

Is there anything on your to-do list for this September?

  1. I definitely want to read and relax more! I think those appointments can be really scary to women who haven't done it before, it's so quick and painless but I absolutely hate the dentist - it's wayyy worse!

  2. Such a lovely post! I love your notepads and I'm really enjoying reading your posts on your new blog! :)

    Mine are to make homemade wholewheat ravioli this month as I've never made pasta before, finish making a little crochet pumpkin garland ready for October and I love the idea of lighting candles and taking time to relax! x

  3. Those things we have to do always seem to threaten to take over, but it's so cheering to have something that you love to do, too. That notebook is lovely :)

  4. I've found myself struggling to make time for the things I love as uni gets a bit more busy and this post reminded me to put some time aside for reading and relaxing.

  6. I really need to be a lot more organised. It is definitely on my to do list this month too, as I want to get back into a routine with my blogging and also planning to set up a baking site that I would like fully up and running in the next couple of months, so definitely need to be more organised to keep them both running smoothly :) xx

  10. Great list! Relaxing is so important, I don't do it enough as well. Candles are amazing in helping you to relax

  12. I really need to go for a cervical screening appointment. thansk for the reminder!

    I love what you're written about making time for the things you love.. very true and not something we get reminded f very often. xx

  13. Ugh, I definitely do not miss having 'required reading'; it's so nice only having to read for leisure, again!
    It's good that you're making time for the things you like to do, as opposed to just the things you have to, and to relax once in a while - it's hard to find the balance sometimes! xx

  14. Well done for highlighting the importance of smear tests :) The first appointment is always scary but they're sooo important

  15. Lovely to-do list, Jennie - especially now you've got the cervical screening out of the way ;) I love the idea of lighting some candles and spending a half hour doing absolutely nothing. Bliss (though actually quite hard to do!) Is that Kiss of the Spiderwoman in the picture above the same story as the musical of the same name?

  16. A lovely list Jennie! Lighting candles and reading for leisure sound like lovely things to do :)

    Thank you, like Emma said, for highlighting the importance of smear tests. I got a letter in the post last week (for when I turn 25 in feb) to have one, and felt absolutely terrified. It put me at such ease to read your thoughts, it's so nice to know it's not as bad as one might think xo

  17. My half hour doing nothing at all rapidly turns to two! :)
    I hope you're well Jennie, I haven't popped over here in a while as I have been so busy. Hoping for a catch up this afternoon.

  19. I think I sometimes forget to dedicate time to what I love and that it's okay to take half an hour off. When trying to plan my time I'm going to remember those from now on!

    I'm relieved to hear that cervical cancer screenings are nothing to worry about too!! :)

    1. It'll make you feel so much better too! <3

  20. My goals are read at least two more books this month, watch a few old films I've had on my list for a long while, and to try and maintain some sort of consistency with writing a blog, but doing it in a way I enjoy rather than feel I have to.

    Thank you for always taking the time to comment on mine.

  21. I love that you included your health screening on this too- it's such a taboo subject and I think it's great that you've got people thinking about their own! I want to read more this month, keep up to date with any uni work I get and try it get creative with some blog posts!
