I've never thought about blogging before. If I'm honest, I'm not the most tech-savvy person around. But I was shown how to do it in work and thought - why not! I can't imagine that anyone would want to read my blog, but then again I read other people's.
I'm still not entirely sure how to reach the world, but I think I've made it look pretty and so there's something ticked off the list.
My question is 'will I ever make it to the top of my own list?'. When I was young and single, I was always top of my list. Then I got married, and I had someone else to put on the list. I still made it in the top quarter of my list though. Then I got a more important job, and work things started creeping on the list. To have separate home and work lists or not? Can I manage two lists? I can never manage two bingo cards (eyes down!). And then came the addition. My beautiful girl. She didn't intrude on the list too much when she was a baby - 'buy nappies', 'take baby for jabs', 'sleep when baby is sleeping' (the most hilariously unattainable piece of parenting advise doled out to new mothers), but otherwise she was a list minimalist. And being the good daytime sleeper that she was, maternity leave brought a new opportunity to achieve the list. But then eventually I was catapulted into this new world of The Working Mother. And boy, it's tough out there.
Have you got a to-do list? What's at the top? For me, top two places are occupied by 'clean the couches' and 'sort out airing cupboard'. I'd like to tell you that the next item is 'book mini-break to Paris', but alas not. I won't bore you with the rest of my domestic needs, but you get my point. Should I set myself a weekly challenge to include something for me in the top five items? Is that a list item in itself?! I'm ahead of the game there as I've booked an indulgent post-work spa treatment next week.
On that note, I'm off to tackle some of the things on the list. Maybe I should start a wish list rather than a to-do list. And somewhere on it will be 'escape the rat race and find a lovely way to earn a crust by being self-employed'. Surely that would generate it's own list entirely!
