Getting things done

 

1 Yesterday bought all cards – Birthday, Anniversary etc till end of November and weighed abroad ones so they can be posted at correct time without queuing.

 
2 Got coir mat fitted in ancient mat well by front door.  Mick has to build it up underneath to get level flush with floor.  The ancient one was thick.  Then carpet people come back to spray it – to keep it in place.

 
3 Got carpet man to measure nursery to replace battle- scarred carpet including imprint of red hot iron – it is now used as ironing room.

 
4 Ordered charity Christmas cards.  Had to make extra phone call as they had omitted to enter amount of P& P on order form.

 
5 Helped Joy choose a delightful ceanothis (Word corrected this to cyanotic) blue outfit for her granddaughter’s wedding with contrasting – a mixture of lemons and shades of blue - silky top with matching scarf.  And two sweaters.  I bought nothing but cards (see#1)

 
6 Got down to ground level to find Product No., Serial No. and Model No of broken laser printer and with use of magnifying glass was successful.  By the time I managed to get vertical again I had forgotten what I wanted them for.  Miraculously the printer has suddenly started working again.
 

7 Started packing

oh, dear, how busy and industrious you've been, pat! might i send you my list of things to do??? seems i'm having a big case of autumn fever [first cousin of spring fever] and can't seem to find anything to hold my attention - such gorgeous blue sky days call my name - distracting me from all else -

Chef Files said...

My dear lady, do you ever pause long enough to recharge your batteries? I am increasingly amazed with your zest for life.

OldLady Of The Hills said...

You are accomplishing so much, Pat....GOOD FOR YOU! And even including Mailings for the Holidays....! (You Really Do Keep Ahead....lol)

Packing??? For what, my dear. Did I miss something? Probably.

The Imposter; if I give that impression its because I like to get the chores out of the way so there is more time to do just what I like.

Gypsy: thanks for reminding me. Time to sit it in the sun.

Chef: see above:)

Naomi: we are off for a week in a thatched cottage in a pretty village.

Parsnip: I love the thought of the bride's grandmother was dressed in a cyanotic trouser suit:)

Kim Ayres said...

Sorting out the nursery? Is there something you should be telling us...?

Sharon Longworth said...

Ouch - and there was I writing about how all I seem to do is sit nowadays!
You are the nicest sort of inspiration.

Pat said...

Kim: nothing on the horizon as far as I can see. Even the great grandchildren are beyond the cot stage.

Sharon: thank you. You can come again:)

rashbre said...

I am very impressed with this level of organisation. I'm afraid I have a reputation for sending cards etc late.

Pat said...

rashbre: it is a good way of clearing bumf off the kitchen table

LL Cool Joe said...

Ha ha number 6 cracked me up. I do that kind of thing too. I go into a room and wonder why. You seem busy. You've bought your Christmas already!!

Pat said...

Joey: only the cards. I'll do those early as there are a lot of 'abroad' then forget about Christmas until a few days before.

Pat said...

John: is the pay good?

Map: I will I will:)
