With less than 6 weeks now until we head off on our trip it is time to really focus on what needs to be done. The only way I can confidently achieve what I want to do in a specified time-frame is to have a list.
For the past few days while I have been busy with Miss O and Izz, I keep thinking of things I need to do.
Here is the beginning of the list:
Buy travel pants
Book appointment to have our tax done
Arrange remote access to the business network
Buy enough cat and dog food for when we are away
Check and stock up on my medication
Complete first draft of information for the house-sitter and email it to her
Attend specialist appointment re my injured knee
Cancel another specialist appointment
Pack for trip to Melbourne next week – 3 days of work then 3 days of holiday
Stocktake of food in the freezer and plan meals to use up as much as possible before we leave
Finish quilt for Izz’s birthday
Write list of birthday/Christmas gift ideas for Miss O and Izz
Measure Miss O and Izz with a view to buying clothes while we are away
That will do far a start. I will update you as things are crossed off. I find it much easier to have a written list than to have ideas floating in and out of my head when I am least able to deal with them.
