Me knees! Well not both of them, just the left one. I got up from my desk earlier to answer the phone and must have stood up in an awkward way, I felt a pull and heard a click and it has been hurting ever since. So I’m hobbling around and in quite a lot of pain.
However, moaning aside: today has been spent mostly on the phone with estate agents and removal firms. I got my Aldi shop done first thing and have done a bit more decluttering.
Tonight I am list making: with the move getting ever closer I have gone in to list making over-drive as it’s the only thing that helps me to feel I am on top of things.
I have always been a list person. I have a short list in my diary each day of things I need to do that day – work related. Shopping lists – could not function in a supermarket without one. Packing list if going away (even for a weekend). There is always a longer work to-do list. Research plan list. Amazon wish list. I now have a Persephone book wish list (thanks to Sue over at Our Quiet Life in Suffolk!!).
And I do cross things off when done. There is something extremely satisfying about putting a line through something. I remember the week before I got married I had quite a ‘to do’ list. We got married five days before Christmas and about four or five days before the wedding I got home from work and wrapped all the Christmas presents that I would be taking to the hotel the day before the wedding to give to family. I guess I spent about two and a half hours wrapping presents and then went to cross the task off my list. Only to discover that I hadn’t actually written this task on the list. So I wrote it on just so I could cross it off!
I’m a list girl…
