Meet Free Monday #6

27th January: A Day at HQ
I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Last week was quite a challenging one. It started off fairly well, but as far as staying on top of things it ended in a muddled heap. Those of you who follow me on Twitter would have seen my updates about our power failure which started on Tuesday. The power came on again for a few brief hours, but after that it stayed off for days despite help from the Corporation. To make a very long story short - it turned out that there was an electrical fault in our home. It was so frustrating. Luckily, on Saturday it finally got fixed and we were back in business. What did I learn from last week? Appreciate electricity when you have it! Onward and upward for this week. Today's post picture also had to be snapped with my iPad as my camera is flat as expected! Okay... time to get organised.

The Working Week: 
Catching-up is the name of the game this week. Most of last week's goals were not reached as I was too busy doing damage control and speaking on the phone to get the problem sorted out. I am still working on a few blogs  and I have several consulting sessions booked this week. I can't wait to meet a bunch of new creatives and hear more about their challenges. I have also worked on some new themed blog posts which will be great to share with you. This week I need to do the final date planning for the next set of workshops.

Things I'm excited about this week:
My office clean-out is very close to being finished! It has taken a ridiculous amount of time, but secretly I enjoyed it! Everything is organised to the max (and labelled of course). Our Creative Coffee Council is also meeting this week and I'm excited to catch up with the ladies as I haven't seen them in months. Lastly, I'm in the process of organising a fun thrift sale - watch this space.

What will challenge me this week?
Staying focused and working systematically through my to do list in order to keep stress at bay. Last week's challenges taught me that I can't be in control 24/7, but I can adapt my outlook.

Personal Thoughts:
In last week's Meet Free Monday post I mentioned my Typo planner - I caved and started using it. So far I'm loving it! I'm still working on my personal goals and I need to focus on exercise this and including it in my list of priorities.

How is your week looking?

P.S.: I'm still working on what to share in these posts. Let me know if there are specific things / details you would like to know more about.


  1. Sounds like a good plan for the week! Wishing you a good one from HP HQ!

  2. Thanks for sharing with us what your week looks like! You inspire me to do more creatively things and to put my time to good use :) Stay as focused as you are as you are an absolute inspiration and motivation to me! xxx

  3. I haven't been feeling very productive during this whole month, it doesn't feel like the year has really started yet. I finally started using my Flow diary too.

  4. Thanks for the comment! I hope all at HP have a wonderful week! x

  5. Hello Megs. Thanks so much for your lovely and kind comment - it definitely adds a smile to my face and happiness in my heart! I hope you have a wonderful, inspired week. x

  6. It has been a tough start to the year - I agree it doesn't feel like it has started properly. Trying to get in the mood & groove. Good luck for your week and enjoy your Flow diary! x

  7. I'm glad your power situation has been sorted out...what a pain! You realize just how much we rely on electricity when something like that happens (the first thing I want to do when the power goes out is make a cup of tea...and then I have a kick myself as I generally get all the way to the kitchen to turn the kettle on when I realize how silly I am).

    Good luck for this week Nadia, I hope you get some big ticks done on your list <3 x
