My September To-Do List

It's been a while since I last shared a monthly to-do list but as September nears the start of my favourite season and really the time I start getting organised and excited for the best time of the year (yes I am thinking about Christmas already) this seemed like a good time to share some of the things I'm hoping to get done this month!

Perfect At Least 2 Brownie Recipes

I know I talk about brownies A LOT on my blog and there doesn't often seem to be a month where I don't share at least one new variety but that's just because they're not only one of my favourite things to eat, but also one of my faves to bake. I feel like I've got a basic brownie recipe down now after many attempts and I finally feel ready to do something with that. Whether it's selling online or going to markets, I'm doing all I can at the moment to make sure that one day, hopefully in the not too distant future, that can become a reality. I've been making my Bourbon Biscuit brownies a lot recently and salted caramel and they're good to go but I still need to really perfect a few others and work on some new presentation ideas. This month I want to make and perfect at least 2 more of my recipes but if I can get more in that would be perfect!

Get Ahead With Blog Posts

I often find I have weeks where I write a ton of blog posts and I can get those all scheduled and ready to go and then all of a sudden I have nothing because I've not kept up with it. I've been feeling really motivated with blogging recently which has meant I've genuinely wanted to write most days so this month I just want to keep that up and make sure I've ideally always got content ready to go. I've got loads of ideas for some new content as we head into Autumn and I've got quite a few books I want to review after a great reading month in August so hopefully I can keep up the momentum.

Be More Active On Instagram

With Instagram, similar to my blog, I find I have weeks where I've got tons of photos I want to share and I'm quite active most of the week and then other times I don't upload for weeks and pretty much disappear. Does anyone else do that? Sometimes I just feel I have nothing interesting to share and I find it quite easy with Instagram to just think who actually cares? It's one platform I find I really do worry about what others think and I'm forever questioning myself which can take the enjoyment out of it. Recently I've been uploading a little more, on my grid and on stories and I'd love to keep that up this month. My followers have been stagnant for I don't even know how long now but generally I just want to be a bit more active on there regardless.

De-Clutter & Charity Shop My Things

It doesn't seem that long ago that I last did a big de-clutter but somehow things have built up again and there's now so much that can go to a charity shop that's just in the way. I always take bags of books every few months as I just don't have the room for all of the ones I get through and not long ago I took a massive bag of clothes too so I'm planning on doing that again this month. I think it's finally time to part with the clothes that are hanging in my wardrobe that I either don't like anymore, don't fit or don't suit me. I also need to de-clutter our kitchen cupboards and get rid of loads of mugs that are just taking up space.

Bring Out The Autumnal Decor

I could have got out the pumpkins and Autumnal candles before now but I've somehow managed to restrain myself. Now September is here, I'm going full out for Autumn. I just can't wait for it to start going dark early, to bring out the cosy blankets and beautiful cinnamon scented candles and for there to be a chill in the air again. Ahhhh it's just the best.

Get Prepared For Our Next Trip

Last month George and I had a night in York and it was just so lovely to do something normal again. Whilst I had high hopes we'd still get abroad this year, in the end a few things just made me too anxious and we have Bear to think about too so it just didn't feel right. I have my fingers crossed for next year. We've decided on a few UK breaks instead so we're off to Oxford for a few nights later this month. I like to get sorted early so I need to make some lists, start packing and get the flat in order before we go.

What's on your September to-do list?

My September to-do list is pretty much identical to yours! I'm trying out a new raspberry and dark chocolate brownie recipe this week, trying to post on Instagram every day this month and my house is in a desperate need of a de-clutter!

Bringing out the autumnal decor and getting ahead with blog posts are to do list items we share. I’m also thinking about Christmas. I bought new decorations today actually.

My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough. here is his Email: or call/text him on his WhatsApp +2347012841542

He is also able to cast spell like 1: Lottery 2: Conceive 3: Breakup 4: Divorce 5: Cure for all kinds of diseases and viruses.
