Alrighty, then! It's Monday again, and it's time to plan out your awesome for the week! How's your day shaping up so far, and what do you have planned for the rest of the week?

As for me, I have had a pretty good weekend, with just the right mix of puppy-sitting, entertainment and jobs around home. I also managed 882 words on Saturday, so that feels pretty good. This week has started okay; at work I got through a file that had been waiting around for me for a few days, so yay, crossed that one off! Tonight I have completed my census form (NZ has these every 5 years. If you want, tell me how often you do them where you live, and when's the next one due?)

Tomorrow is a busy day - in the morning I have a review hearing to attend at work (not the best fun, but not about me so not an issue), and after work, my daughter and I are going to see James Blunt in concert! I'm looking forward to that, and although that will mean a late night and a very tiring Wednesday, it should be worth it!

From there, things will be quieter, so I'm hoping to get onto the February Bingo banners (go here to leave a comment if you completed something for Bingo and would like a reward banner), and then do some more WIP words, especially on Saturday, as I am up for the Daily Count Challenge that day!

Here are the reminders and other things you need to help kick you off for the week:
