I had a day off today! After a very slow start I debated whether or not I should write a list of things I needed to do or just face up to the day drifting past without much productivity.
After a flurry of activity I decided I would write a list and added the things that I had already done (is that cheating?)
Anyway – here is said list, with all the completed things marked off
Vacuum pack clothes to put in loft
Put clothes in loft – need somebody else to do this for me
Sort out the rest of the clothes
Wash door mats
Do the ironing
Sort out the textiles for recycling – not for charity shop
Take old towels to local RSPCA centre
Attempt some gardening
I think I actually did quite well! With the help of future daughter-in-law I recycled the textiles and took the towels to the local animal centre and even managed to spend an hour or so in the garden – if I could have one wish it would be that I had a neighbour who tended his garden. The garden next door is wall to wall weeds and all he does is mow it two or three times a year which results in brambles and coarse grass growing through into my garden – no matter what I do I can't stop it.
On the subject of future daughter in law they are continuing their mission for the perfect wedding venue and yesterday visited this lovely place, they even gave them a quote for what they think the cost will be in four years time! So far this is the venue of choice, I hope that they don't think I'm, being too negative when I tell them to slow down a bit but I think it's too soon – am I being hard?
Dinner calls – ready made lasagne I'm afraid, I can't be too much of a domestic goddess!
