Why are we called the 9-5 Planner?

Category : General

I am a born planner.  Even as a child I used to enjoy planning my days out in various notebooks and I had so many diaries on the go.  I loved stickers and using them to transform a dull notepad into something magical.  As I have grown up, I have always kept up my diary tradition and now have a bright pink A5 Filofax that is full of beautiful paper and floral stickers.  I think I probably have enough washi tape to go at least once round the earth.  My love of planning has extended into my career and my 9-5 day job involves very high level strategic planning.  However, as much as I would love to use my pink fluffy flamingo pen and my hot pink Pusheen note paper in board meetings, it is just not the done thing for a serious professional.  So I like to think I have two planning personalities, the 9-5 planner and the pink fluffy weekend planner.  In my 9-5 planner mode, I use serious washi tape with pictures of building silhouettes and black and white sophisticated to do stickers because even though I am at work, I still want to let my personality come through, even if it does have to be toned down.  At the weekends, I am all over my glitter unicorn stickers and gorgeous flamingo washi tape.  My general planner is broken into two sections.  The 9-5 section has toned down sensible black and white floral dividers, my weekend section has rainbow unicorns.  This blog represents my two sides, it contains the serious 9-5 business me, but it also lets my inner glitter girl come out.  I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.
