Are you an organiser or last minute?

In my mind you are either an organiser or last minuter.

You like surprises or would be panic stricken at the thought.

I'm an organiser. I have next years holiday booked already & have plans for May 2017.

I love having everything noted on my calendar and the time to pay for holidays or trips. I like to budget & plan. I've already started making plans for Christmas. Having said that I'm not great with birthdays. I remember the month but not the date & buy cards which never get sent.

I'm not keen on spontaneous trips or surprises. Although the odd unplanned pub outing has been refreshingly lovely.

As I've got older more & more of my friends have followed in the forward planning mentality. I think as life gets busier and children are born things change although some are still free spirits.

People that have 2 weeks off work & want to go away but haven't booked anything throw me into a spin. How could they do that?!? 😊

Also parent's who casually arrange childcare for the school holidays with no real plan panic and amaze me. I changed my work contract to cover them such is my worry & forward planning nature.

How about you? Are you a planner or spontaneous spirit? Have you already planned next year's summer holiday?

  2. I know I need to be an organiser but I feel I am a last minute disaster zone. My job used to be PR being reactive, working under pressure to tight deadlines was a good skill. Not for being a mum - when will I learn? Plan, plan plan! #bigpinklink

    1. Ha ha! Its good to wing it sometimes. I'm too much of a worrier to not plan. x

  3. My husband is a massive planner, he likes everything planned to within an inch of its life!! I'm far too laid back, and put things to the back of my head, that I really should be planning for! I love impromptu breaks and days out, I find these so exciting!! I think my husband reigns me in a bit, with both of us being the extremes of planner and spontaneous, we have found a happy medium!

    1. Sounds perfect. I worry too much to be really spontaneous. I love holidays planned a year in advance! x

  6. I think that I'm a mix of both. I don't like to plan too much as I know that so many things crop up and cause problems with plans but I also don't like to leave things to the last minute! Contrary and it makes things hard! Thank you for joining the #weekendblogshare
