Come and Bop to the Hop

Hello and welCome to my little Corner of blog land, I’d love for you to have a little look around my world  here at BuCkingham’s Palace.

You should have joined me from Meghann’s blog but, if you’re not following the blog hop in order, there are links to all of the blogs taking part at the bottom of this post.

Each lovely blog along this hop has a letter for you to Collect.  Once you’ve got them all, and have reaChed the end of the hop, you can email Jennifer the phrase you’ve Collected.  All entries must be reCeived by Monday 2nd July at 11:59 BST, all the Correct answers will be put into a draw to win a gorgeous prize paCkage of October Afternoon 9 to 5 and Studio Calico Take Note items worth over £25!!!

Now the theme for this is:


Something that I’m good and something that I'm bad at! 

In my working life I’ve had to organise thousands of people on tours and get them all to stiCk to the itinenary: not a problem. 

In my home life there is a lot of organisation for me to do beCause I have my teenage daughter here but my
partner lives 106 miles away: not a problem!

In my Crafting life I have a plaCe for everything and everything in its plaCe. Although to an outsider it may look like organised Chaos I can lay my hands on exaCtly what I need when I need it: not a problem.  So why don’t I ever get as much done as I want?  Here’s the reason why:

I spend far too muCh time proCrastinating and thinking about the things I want to do rather than getting them done.  Then everything is done just before the deadline hits, whiCh, if I'm honest, I quite enjoy beCause I love working under pressure!

So no matter how organised you are, you can still end up:

Today, for once, I am totally organised.  This blog post is done on time and I'm more or less up to date with everything.  It's my daughter Maddie's 18th birthday tomorrow and all her presents are bought and wrapped!  Tonight we will be having a girlie night before celebrating tomorrow!

I hope you’ve managed to C the letter hidden in this post :).

Your next stop along the hop is Abi and below you will find a list of all of the blogs taking part.

Maria Ontiveros said...

I know it's hard to do the same thing at home that I have to do at work.

Julie Baswell said...

I am very bad about procrastinating too. And like you, I like to work under pressure-most times.

Jo Murray said...

I C you have quite a good system going. Happy birthday Maddie!

Jimjams said...

I used to procrastinate a lot, but I'm getting a lot better at getting on with things lately!

Love your layout, the slippers look comfy too!

I can be a prcrastinator too...I have to push myself to get things done at times. Knowing our foibles is half the battle!

Susan said...

I can totally relate to what you've said here as I'm a bit of a procrastinator myself - always have been. Even when it comes to scrapbooking I sometimes have to tell myself, "just go do it!". Then afterwards I wonder why I don't "just do it" like that all the time because I always like the results of what I create. Happy Birthday to your daughter! :-)

Lisa-Jane said...

Oh my goodness Jo! I didn't realise Maddy was so grown up, I thought she was just starting senior school age for some reason. I too am a champion procrastinator. Speaking of which, I must get on!

Ali said...

Well done Jo, great post, and hope you really enjoy the birthday celebrations.

Susanne said...

Fab layout. I am a procrastinator too - and think I have passed that gene onto my son in spades. Happy birthday to your daughter.

Procrastination - I know it only too well. And it's so much easier to put things off now that there's a whole host of blogs to read :)

Carin McDonough said...

I am also a complete procrastinator! :)
