Wow! That's some list!! If you're anything like me, the 'order of merit' will change considerably as time progresses! Is there anything on there that's just for you?

Good luck!!

If it is on the list, it'll get done, or you'll realsie it is not important anymore.

Either way, you move forward.

I am a list lover.

Well done! xx

Yikes, that sounds like way to much cleaning. You need to add some more fun stuff.

I love a good list and a good clean out - noticed you will be spending a lot of time cleaning - hope you can fit some blogging in the list too! I have a brand new sewing machine in a box too - I should plant to get mine out this month. Naomi x

There's something about a good list and the thrill of crossing things off! :)
