I wasn't expecting you to be the OP!

Mine:

- sleep in
- finish knitting sleeve
- go to the show
- go to the markets
- three loads of washing
- finish the weeding in the backyard

To be fair though, DH will do the washing and facilitate the sleep in so I am not sure they should be on my list!

lanthe - good article - I sort agree actually, to a point - I have to prioritise my lists (work lists too) or sort them - in this case by room and work clockwise around the house (gosh, now I sound OCD!) - otherwise I just do the easy stuff first!

Mavis - great to see you are getting some extra shut eye wink.gif

PBQ - thought I'd take the pressure off for once original.gif  I really appreciate the art of list making original.gif '

Only problem is that I woke up and remembered more stuff Tounge1.gif

Off to get started!

Clean loungeroom
Put away baskets of folded / unfolded clothes
Clean kitchen / laundry / bathroom / loo (mop if I can find the energy)
Take girls to swimming lessons
Empty school bags / backpacks and find out what surprises are lurking therein

That's enough to be getting started with - clean bedrooms tomorrow
