I am a list person! I love to write lists. You either are or you aren't and I am. My Mum was a list writer and I still have scraps of paper with her lists written on them...precious memories
I find it helps me to gather my thoughts and put them in order. It also keeps me on track....yes I am also a procrastinator...big time. So, if I write a list I at least have it in writing what I need or want to do.
Today I am going to start writing the list of things I would like to do these holidays. It will be a mix of need to, want to, have to and love to.
- Hairdresser - love this too as she serves the best coffee
- Scrub all bathrooms
- Vacuum house thoroughly
- Weed garden and trim and clean-up pot plants
- Organise my daughters 18th Birthday evening - BBQ and Bonfire ( I live with a family of Pyromaniacs)
- Hand washing - you know those things that always end up at the bottom of the basket until you have more time
- Clean and sort out my bedroom..... those little things that need to be put away in the right place but just don't over time!
- Walk every day for at least one hour
- Take my dog for his daily walk...as he has gotten older this has become a twenty minute daily sniff-fest. We just go for a wander and he can sniff whatever he passes.
- Cook yummy healthy meals
- Soup - experiment with some new soup recipes
- Organise my craft room - my daughter moved out 6 months ago and her room was meant to become a guest /craft room. So far it is only a guest room so I need to 'claim my space'!
- Write and send some letters to my Post circle (If anyone is reading this I am so sorry about being so disorganised and slow about this)
- Shop - I need new shoes and clothes for work. I might just need to combine that with lunch with a girlfriend (so that could also go in the love category)
- Take my daughter to her optometrist appointment. She needs her eyes checked every six months and scarily her eyesight deteriorates a little each time.
- Fly to Sydney to visit my Dad
- Road trip with my sisters (5 hour drive up the coast to my Dad's house to clean it and sort it out before selling. Fun times with my 3 sisters, no kids for three days)
- Celebrate my youngest daughters 18th birthday
- Catch up with friends that you have trouble fitting in when working fulltime
- Crochet - what more can I say....time to crochet, finish a few things for my shop, take better photos for my shop (not my best talent)
- Read - more books and less internet. I love reading blogs but I must admit that the online community can consume you and you find that hours have gone past very quickly.
- Sit in the winter sun. I love winter living in Brisbane. We do have very cold nights but the average daily temp is usually at least 20 degrees Celsius.
Wow what a list, lucky I have 15 days left to do all this.
