Getting your act together

Today is my “life-min” day. The past week has been super hectic (although really great) and I need to catch up on job applications, uni work and my contribution to putting on an awesome day of speakers for the upcoming International Day of the Midwife.

I am a dedicated list writer. Seriously, I even draw square boxes next to the task so the “ticking” is neater (my mother thinks this is worrying). But I’m pretty dependent on a few technological advances as well as the humble pen and paper in order to juggle commitments.

Remember the Milk is a great task-manager app which I use on my iPad. You can prioritise your to-do list into different categories and you can switch easily between your completed tasks and those you still need to do. Plus it’s free.


Have you used Doodle before? It’s so popular among my friends we regularly use the term “doodledate” to refer to making plans. It’s so simple – you select dates, the rest of your group says what they can do, the Doodle tells you when your meetup is – but it is so clever! Say goodbye to endless irritating email chains.


SurveyMonkey appeals to my obsessive organiser within. When me and the girls are trying to make a decision on where we should go on holiday/what birthday present we should get someone/where we should host our next “meltdown”, I like to pop the options into a SurveyMonkey then send it out by email so everyone can vote anonymously and a decision can be made. Hooray!



Saying this, I would happily settle for this beautiful “Sunny Side Up” Smythson notebook for all my planning needs. How beautiful is that colour? At £65, it’s definitely an investment but imagine how happy you would be every time you whipped it out of your handbag.
