Wow, Liz that list is huge.

Actually, mine is probably that long, but I have TWO weeks to get my house in order.

We are just back from holiday, so taking things slowly.

Now that mum and Michael have gone home and the kids are at SILs for the night (until late tomorrow arvo), I am trying to get as much done as possible.
