Morning, everyone. Welcome to Friday! I'm in the middle of a stupid o'clock phase so I've been awake for a while but, unlike yesterday when I started on The List early, today I have been reading and relaxing which is a really pleasant way to start the day.
It seems dry outside and it feels pretty mild too. We saw sunshine yesterday, perfect for a house moving, so let us hope today is the same.
The coffee and chat with Chris was lovely. I was at hers and we were able to keep an eye on things as the removal people packed everything in their lorry. Three hours or so later, off they went, leaving J, K and a smaller van to clear up the remains of the move. By just after midday, they had gone. Sad.
The new family didn't move in but there was a car outside late afternoon and the lights were on. Maybe today . . . it might be a good idea to move my car onto the road, in case the cul de sac is blocked for a while.
I am so pleased with how many things have been crossed off The List and it was so nice to see, in the comments, that other like their Lists too. There are now plenty of spaces on my bookshelves and the other shelf unit is now holding my own sewing stuff again, moved out of the way when Beth took it over as her workroom/office. That clears up several shelves in a unit downstairs. Excellent.
I've started a new List because the old on was getting so crossed out, it was hard to see what was left to do. It's mostly finishing off and smaller tasks now. For a while . . .
Today starts with the weekly Slimming World meeting and then the day's my own apart from the wonderful cleaners. While the spirit moves, I will continue to work through my list and get as much done as I possible can which includes a bit more ironing - where does it all come from? :-)
Just to let you know, there most likely won't be any blogs tomorrow - I'm out early and will be very busy. Back on Sunday.
Have a great Friday, everyone. What's on your List today?
Stay safe, well and happy. xx
If I ever accomplish anything in addition to what's on my list, I will write it down just so that I can have the satisfaction of crossing it off again :)ReplyDelete
I also 'enjoyed' an early start this morning. As usual, Mog was shouting at me to get up at 5am!
Enjoy your day. X
I love that cheer me up strategy. Diane does the same and why not? :-)Delete
Glad all went well and the weather was kind to you.ReplyDelete
Thanks. It's not looking so hopeful at the moment but you never know. xxDelete
I've only got 2 lists on the go at the moment, just need some dryer weather without the damp mornings to get grass cut.ReplyDelete
Have a good day.
It really is quite damp this morning,. isn't it, without actually raining too much. Turning chilly too, think.Delete
Hope your day is going well too, xx
I do the same as Jules (above) just to have extra things to tick off. I've started a new list today, all to do with the last bits of the decluttering. I've just added the three parcels I packed before starting this new list because I will be able to tick those of once I've been to the Post Office!ReplyDelete
Fingers are crossed for your SW weigh in. Hope you have a great day xx
Ticking off is so motivating, isn't it?Delete
It was good this morning. As I'm not posting tomorrow, I've just posted an update there.
I need to start a 'his and hers' list. That way it reminds us both of things that need doing and is a visual reminder of who (me) is actually ticking things off their to do list. :-)ReplyDelete
Oooooh - crafty, but I like it! ;-)Delete
I’m still adjusting to the time change too, it takes me a bit. Feels good to start a new list👍❤️ReplyDelete
Yours was a week later than ours, wasn't it? It can knock one for six and I suspect as we get a bit older it affects us a bit more.Delete
Oh I forgot to say what I’m doing today, dentist, then a nice long walk, lunch then home, 👍ReplyDelete
Hope the dentist went well. The rest sounds lovely!Delete
I love getting things checked off on my to do lists. Makes me feel good. :)ReplyDelete
Me too - it's funny, that, isn't it? I suppose it's physical sign of what one has achieved that day.Delete
I only ever make a list for grocery shopping but, funnily enough, always seem to have to start a new list right after I return from the grocery store! I shopped today and already there are three things on next week's list.ReplyDelete
Oh, yes, snap!! Isn't it annoying? There's always something!Delete
I have a new list every day, and one of the items I have on it is unfinished. Seems to work for me.ReplyDelete
That's good. I think, looking at how much I've achieved, I need to follow your example and do this daily. Thanks.Delete
I need to do better at lists! I hope that, at the end of the day when you've crossed things out, you throw the list away. We've been sorting through Jane's house (a listmaker of monumental proportions) who was good at making lists but not throwing them away. There are so many it is overwhelming!ReplyDelete
It's an ongoing process as there's always something new to add. The trials of being a home owner, I guess.Delete
I tend to remake and throw the old one away when it either gets too messy or there's no space left. That is, when I'm in list mode.
I think I maybe ought to work at making it daily though. Goodness knows, I have enough paper!
