I always have an ongoing list in my head or on bits of paper full of things that need to be done. It’s a pretty endless list, with items being added faster than they ‘re crossed off.
Last Christmas I remember being pretty stressful, everything seemed last minute with not much organisation or time for the fun stuff, for me at least. I’m sure the kids didn’t see it like that. In fact, I’m pretty sure they had a ball, but I was left wishing I’d done more, made it more special.
So, this year I have big plans. Plans to spend less time on the computer in the evening ( and hopefully the day ), get organised and do lots of fun stuff, including some bits just for me!
- Write cards before middle of November – essential task for a stress free December
- Buy gifts before December – leaving room for any last minute bargain shopping
- Kids write Christmas lists
- At least two stomps around a forest.
- See Santa – maybe at LEGOLAND
- Make Christmas decorations
- Make snuggle sack a la Thinly Spread
- Learn to crochet
- French knit a stickman for H
- Have a little Christmas party for H and her friends
- Make some gifts for Grandparents
- Print out photos
- Make photo book
- Birthday afternoon tea ( for me )
- Birthday drinks ( for me )
- Have a facial
- Get hair cut
Doesn’t that look like a happy list?
What do you wish you had time to do for yourself.

That is an impressive list!! I like the idea of writing cards before the middle of November but know I could never stick to that. I really should start writing lists though as I am forgetting everything. Even forgot my hair appointment last week 🙁 At least they forgave me 🙂 xx
Learning to crochet is on my list too! I just need to find someone to show me how as I’ve been failing with YouTube tutorials so far !
What a lovely list, have fun with it! Around this time last year I made myself a Day Zero Project list, where you come up with a list of 101 things to complete in 1001 days. I’ve really enjoyed working through the list (I’ve still got quite a way to go!), I’ve done lots of things that I wouldn’t have prioritised otherwise.
What a great plan and now I’m heading back to work I think I’ll join you with this. x
I always have lists on the go too, I live by them and on my list strangely enough is shave my legs as I seem to be prioritising everything else but me recently. I’m going to do that today Emma and tick that one off at last. then on to the Christmas cards, I really want to make some this year and half term is the perfect time to do so
What a brilliant list. Short term I would just like a lie in on a Sunday morning with a cup of tea.
Longer term I have decided I would like to learn about tea. You know how you get wine experts? Well I want to be a tea expert. Going to find the time to do a tea tasting course and learn my Darjeeling from Lapsang Souchong.
I have ten million lists on the go at all times (this might be a slight exaggeration), but time always stops me to accomplish everything on there that is for me only. I always put everyone else first. Maybe we should make this a blog linky – one thing a week that you’ve done for yourself x
