My Spring has sprung a kink

24 Mar

Things have all been going on since I last reviewed my jobs list, so lets see if my C- of a while ago can be regraded.

  • Factory reset old Mac and contact recyclers
  • Wade through desk paperwork left over the past three weeks
  • Begin turf out sort of draws, cupboard, boxes etc [be ruthless]
  • Put Aberdeen photos and stories in the book
  • Find photo for new frame
  • WebSite update
  • Finish crochet shawl
  • Write the letters

The Mac has been taken to the recyclers who haggled but I settled for £50 just to be rid of the thing *tick*
Desk paperwork is sort of being kept on top of and put away more frequently *tick*
Turf Out has been completed [as per last post] poor recycling bin has never been so full *tick*
Photo Book – it is still on the desk, waiting for inspiration 😦
Photo has been found for the two frames and they’re standing on the dresser *tick*
Website has been updated. Done nothing with mine, but its not exactly necessary
Crochet shawl was already done by the last review
Letters are still waiting.

However, I have also

Booked the train tickets and wheelchair assistance for our London adventure
Bagged up all the delightful stuff for the carboot sale
Found the right Scalextric wheels and ordered new sets
Found leather necklace to hang pendant on looks fab]
Finished last tweaking in the family tree book

So, I think that all things considered, I recon I should get a B+ 

What’s next???

  • Get the photo book done
  • Write the letters
  • Redo my website [time consuming but not difficult]
  • Finish the cross-stitch design
  • Tidy up project box beside sofa
  • Get the books on Gumtree

The photo is from the beautiful birthday flowers my BFF sent me, that central rose is at least 3 inches in diameter, it is huge!

    Well done!

    Lists are a great thing for helping achieve things.

    We make a list on 1st Jan listing things to do and places to go etc then review it the following year. We do quite well with it usually.

    Went to Hampton Court (the Tudor Palace) in London last week. Somewhere you might enjoy. The Gardens are lovely (and flat)Not sure how accessible the upper floors of the palace are but amazed to see ordinary people live in a part of it. we saw them getting into a hidden lift door!

    May put some photos up if I ever get time!

      The lilies are filling the room with a heady perfume that makes my eyes water. It is Friday and still pungent and not all the flowers have opened yet!!

      I have categories of lists, there is a “today” list which is general stuff that must get done today, the obligatory “to-do” list, then there is the “projects” list and the “Web” list.

      Of course putting something on the list, does not correlate to it getting done, lol.
