    So... I have done some things today. Done two meetings, two dog walks, changed bedding, dusted flat surfaces in bedroom, most dailies and have made headway with the presentation. Am hoping to break the back of it tomorrow in between another meeting and dog walks. Two hour commute for the meeting too.
    Spend less now, work less later.

    Good evening :D

    Thank you for the lists. Count me in this week (I will at least try!)
    The weekend came and went quickly as usual! Saturday a.m. was spent cleaning up the kitchen after Parkrun, which then needed doing again as DD2 was making a cake for my Mum's 80th on Sunday. I would show you a photo if I knew how! :rotfl: Sunday was spent with my Mum. We went for a meal, but she didn't know that it would include family from as far north as Halifax and as far south as Portsmouth! :D Also, her sister and my cousins from Lowestoft. She was chuffed, and yes, she did cry! (happy tears)

    Today, it was back to mums to collect my Christmas pressie, which finally arrived last week! She bought me a small greenhouse!! :T I am so chuffed!! I just need to get the garden cleared and get it put up now!

    Out running again tonight. DH has cleaned up the kitchen (again!) I may shove the hoover around downstairs before we go out! I really need to get myself into gear!!

    Hugs, sticks and spoons to those that need them.

    Evening all

    Feeling slobbish. I was late home from work. DH was later. I have cooked, WULTD, tidied kitchen and hung up washing.

    I really ought to either tackle some of paperwork mountain or build the furniture which is still in boxes. Not sure that I cba. I’m also one who gets far more done in the morning so now is not a good time for me to even consider starting something.

    Well done Valli on the SW loss :T. That’s also on my list to declutter this year. Again.

    I used to use Lord Sheraton Leather Wipes which are good but they were out of stock last time so I bought the Lord Sheraton Leather Shine Spray, I have to say I think the spray is far better both smell like marzipan, if you like that smell which I do :rotfl:

    So after my tea and cake break this afternoon I flew some more

    Hoovered
    DD's rooms as she's not back
    Landing
    Other stairs
    Office/Playroom
    Wiped all surfaces in DD's room
    Wiped Electricals in DD's room
    Wiped window sills in DD's room
    Tidied away some books in OP room
    Folded one load of laundry and took upstairs


    Today definitely feels more productive but then I haven't done anything else so I will need to clear some emails, that will be something else from the list and see if there are any new jobs advertised.

    Well done Valli in the weightloss
    Lost my wings, need to learn to fly again
