Here it is Monday night and I am still trying to work out where my weekends go. I start with great intentions of achieving so much and by Sunday afternoon/evening I am left wishing that I had another day or two and then I would get everything done that I had planned.
No, of course I would not. I would simply have a longer list. When I was considering all of this last night I realised that although I do not seem to get everything done that I hope to, I do usually manage to make some forward progress.
By forward progress, I mean achieve something that will not need to be done again next week. So this does not include regular jobs like cooking, washing clothes, ironing or evening mending because I know they will all be back to be done again another day.
This weekend I helped The Duke re-hang the freshly painted doors on our new storage cupboard. That is an achievement – we now have a completed cupboard in the downstairs entry. I do not have to think about that again.
We have also been working on planning our trip. We have finished the itinerary and have booked about 3/4 of our accommodation. My goal is to have that completed well within the next 3 weeks. That will mean I have 3 months clear before the trip to focus on reading guidebooks, planning sightseeing and things to do. In short, making sure we make the absolute most of this ‘trip of a lifetime’.
I have not posted for a while about Project 333. This is all ticking along smoothly with the minimum of fuss which is good as that is the essence of the challenge. Tomorrow I will tell you a bit more about some of the things I am learning along the way.
