I’ve been away for a funeral and it’s been an emotional few days, but now I’m home and trying to get to grips with real life again. Step one is to write myself a ‘to do’ list. I am a great list maker (spot the Virgo), although I’m not sure my technique is quite as effective as I tell people it is.
My current list reads like this:
**outline new M&B – have brilliant idea**
***Write new M&B***
Do something about boiler!!!
New FB page????????????????
Replace light bulbs – electrician?
**** renew virus protection **** DON’T FORGET ABOUT THIS!!!!!
Or replace computer???
Pay credit card (aaaarrghhh)
Finish time slip
**Promote teaching courses**
Menu New Year
And so on (and on, and on)
Sadly, I keep changing my mind about what should go at the top of the list, which means rewriting it, which in turn means that rather than achieve anything, I just move things around and panic. Although, as you can see, UPDATE BLOG, has briefly settled at the top, and I am seizing the moment to strike one thing off at least.
Fired up by this success, am ready to tackle Christmas, which obviously involves a whole subset of lists to write involving cards/presents/food etc. Am just off to find myself a pen and a clean sheet of paper …
