Battle Plan Bidness

08 Mar

There are only eleven days until my BFF comes to play I mean stay, yes stay.  Always much look forwardededed to with electric anticipation. We plan tasty foods and we plan loads of films and things, we plan plans to stitch n bitch and sometimes actually manage to stitch too!  But I have a rival, someone with whom I absolutely cannot compete with, he is such a courteous gentleman, he can melt you with just a blink of his mesmerising eyes, of course I am referring to ‘Mikey’ the not-my-cat who sits on my recycling bin ‘supervising’ kitchen activities and persuading to be let in.

Her imminent arrival also gives me the impetus to get on with the to-do list.  So here we go, my list

  • Tidy/sort/chuck bathroom junk
  • Today/sort/chuck bedroom junk
  • Wash towels
  • Start big shop list of don’t forgets
  • Shift/bag loose balls of yarn
  • Tidy away untidied bedroom bits
  • Finish web album work
  • Type up pod cast article
  • Create contact page

I’ve slowly been catching up with the web work at my desk, I’m still trying to master getting up from my desk but I am no nearer success.  There’s a lazy aspect in my brain, I psych myself up, get hands and chair in place, sit ready, take a deep breath and flop as the impetus flood away and despondency makes me change my mind and I end up doing the hip aching chair shuffle to the sofa.

When BFF is here I plan to ftp the album files to the server, a task that takes numerous hours and double checking of files to make sure it’s done it all proper like. So hence the deadline to get all the updates and info ready to be published.

Really looking forward to our two weeks PJ party, even if it does include my 0-heck golden gauged half century type birthday.

    Ftp? File transport protocol perhaps…..just guessing?

    What a party you have got to look forward to. Is Mikey joining you? I bet your heart will melt in his direction soon.

    Your list could put a lot of us to shame. I am currently sorting out sprog’s old room at a snail’s pace. The empty nest has needed to be re-formed for a long time.

      Yes you are right, file transfer protocol, the photo albums section of the website are large files to upload. Because the program publishes files in folders in folders in folders, it sometimes gets confused so has to be checked.

      I’d like to say that these jobs are just a few mini jobs, but in truth are things that have been shaming me as I try not to look at them for months and months. Pure laziness on my part, plenty of excuses (forgot to grab bin bag, too cold with the weather, not enough tine before lunch/dinner/bed etc). Procrastinate no more!

      Oww what memorable secret treasures have you found in sprog’s room, is sprog aware you’re rummaging??

      Forgot about the celebrations. In a couple of weeks I leave my forties and become fifty! Family dinner to scoff succulent spare ribs and have a few giggles at a local eatery. There’s even a remote possibility of going to the cinema (to see what I’ve no idea) …. I know, heady times, living life large!!

        That is a significant milestone, have a great one when it arrives. Your ideas for celebrations sounds really good fun.

        In answer to your other questions, yes, to prior knowledge, and yes, there’s some books that have found the light of day…we wondered where they had got to.
