How-much-did-I-do-list

  1. wash up if I did it once does it still count? Or do I have to do it EVERY TIME there are dirty dishes????
  2. put washing on - I put it in but forgot to set it going - does that count????
  3. make toad-in-the-hole batter, peel spuds and find veg for the children's supper- done
  4. quickly tidy sitting room (it will take DAYS to make it look decent!!! which was all going well until I had to move the sofa to show Malcolm (see No. 8) the huge hole in the wooden floor which disclosed the layers of toys and grot lurking under the furniture!
  5. finish finding homes for the books displaced during the big dining room rearrangement
  6. tidy sewing table - can't do that because of all the spewed out contents of the w.a.c.c.b.n.f.o.s.s cupboard
  7. empty middle part of the was-a-computer-cupboard-but-now-full-of-sewing-stuff cupboard all over dining table and sewing table
  8. try to fix the collapsed shelf in the aforementioned cupboard that gave way under the weight of all my lovely Australian craft magazines - okay, so I lied here - I asked Malcolm, my very clever next door neighbour, to fix it for me so he has taken away the two pieces of splintered wood and is going to bring them back when they are one again!
  9. design and cut out a simple doggy softy for my friend's gorgeous little girl - couldn't find the table or fabrics - see 6,7 and 8 above
  10. iron a few clothes (I know! It's amazing! Because I never, ever, ever iron clothes - but I've got some nice new ones that would look so much better ironed so I may have to break the habit of a life time!) - had you going for a bit!!!!
  11. collect fabric from closing down shop got some nice black velvety fabric
  12. post parcel to Jodie and Annie
  13. hoover Daisy and Fred's bedroom because we can finally see the floor again!
  14. tidy hall and hoover hall and stairs
  15. waste hours reading all your lovely blogs instead of tidying now that one was just easy!!!!
  16. compulsively check my newly updated blog for comments again losing valuable tidying timehmmmmm, easy again
  17. contact the delivery office to get them to send me my parcel again
  18. do a sneaky extra layer of papier mache on Dot's model because it looks like it is never going to harden nearly stuck myself to it too!
  19. wish I was sewing instead oh yes!
  20. work on my CV - that's this evening's job along with a very large glass of very nice red wine!
  21. Ring up for some job application forms and maybe ring some temping agencies too well I rang them, they just weren't there to talk to today!
  22. help the children make some chocolate crispie cakes after school - full of smarties and jelly tots too!
  23. swear (silently) a lot because the internet won't connect so I can publish this post flipping computer!
Sorry to subject you all to my to-do-list but it really helped me get more done than I would have otherwise - I love being able to cross things off lists!

trashalou said...

Crumbs Missus! You certainly got loads crossed off. V. lucky to have such a handy Malcom close by too I say.

Btw, how did Mr. Locket get on down in Londinium?

Esther said...

Solorn said...

Seeing someones to-do list being finished is almost as good as doing my own! Lists in general are good though. I have just started a blog that is nothing BUT lists!

Leanne said...

Just catching up on what I have missed...Good luck with the job hunting......Love "french women don't get fat" you test it and send me some tips. Milly is tooo cute. Great shot of Lofty pigeon and the little blue car. Congrats on the to do list such a lot of crossed off jobs perhaps I should start one.

hannah said...

eek thats one heck of a list, even half-crossed-off! I do the fly-lady thing when i have so much to do, set the timer and do 15 minutes, then move onto something else. it keeps it manageable and you can timetable coffee/computer breaks into it!!!

Thimbleanna said...

You crack me up Lucy! Now, I must know what Toad in the Hole batter is!

Rachelmp said...

Ohh, that is one massive list .. good luck! Good luck with the interview too Lucy!

Carin said...

I am wiped out just reading the list what a busy woman you are

Farmyard Crafts said...

You've made me laugh heaps - on a not so laugh filled day! Thanks for your cheery post! And sorry, yes, the dishes do need to be done lots more than once!!! Wouldn't it be great if we could just do them once!!!

the pesky bombolino said...

Blimey! I honestly thought that was your list for the week, not just one day! I am now officially a lazy toad!

Lesley said...

Knew you could do it....although it looks like the shelf and floorboard shenanigans might have created even more to-do!!

I think we need another list so we know what you'll be doing today :)

Karol-Ann said...

Well you did more than me then!!!

Lynda (Granny K) said...

Whew! I think I need a nice lie down after reading that! I'm exhausted! ;OD

Lisa said...

Nice List! I love lists, and make them obsessively, but then don't post them. I really should, seeing as my blog is called Books. LISTS. Life.

Gina said...

Crikey... wonderwoman!!!

monkee maker said...

Lumme Lucy! Your list making and crossing off skills are astounding! Maybe if give you a list of all the stuff that needs to go on mine, you could make me one and then "pop" down, do said stuff, and cross it off??

No? *sigh* then I guess NOTHING will get done as I'm pretty pants in the list making department. And the getting stuff done department for that matter ....

Loving Daisy's sketches in the last post and Fred t-shirt is brill!

:)

ps. I hope the interview went / will go well.

We have a small birthday party tomorrow and I have the mother of all to do lists today - so of course, the best way to get through it is to sit here and read yours ;-)

Suzie Sews said...

nicky said...

You had me in stitches, at least most of it is done!
