    Dolly's diary....... 22nd May 18 at 5:21 PM
    Hello my name is Dolly and I love lists

    I'm going to start this new post and the first promise I am going to make to myself and you is to keep it active and up to date as I have seriously lagged with any previous attempts for one reason or another.

    So a bit about me then;

    * My name is not really Dolly
    * I am a single pringle
    * I am 35 years old
    * I live and work in sunny Glasgow
    * I LOVE Harry Potter, Harris Tweed, stationary, lists and tequila
    * I'm a family and friends orientated person
    * I'm all about the happy and the positivity

    Will be back soon with my first of many lists

    Dxxx

    Hi Dolly, I love lists too and find the only way I can work is to write a list and then cross it all off. I love your life list and your list for now. I will subscribe to hopefully get some motivation to write more lists!

    It is important that we know where we come from, because if you do not know where you come from, then you do not know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you are going. If you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.

    If you love lists you should do a bullet journal! I am currently in my second month and i love it!!

    I tried to post a link but I'm a newbie so I'm not allowed! But if you just google "bullet journal" loads will come up. (I just bought a cheap notebook from amazon and used Pinterest for ideas!)

    Good luck with your goals!

    I love a list too. I always try and break goals into 'smart' goals, it helps me to break it down into simple, manageable steps. Good luck! X

    Only about another 50 to use

    I could happily buy a nice bit of stationary every time I see one but I will resist!
