Ticking the To-Do List

Considering today is the last official day of my holidays, I thought I might review the 'to do' list and see what has been achieved.  I think you will be impressed... I certainly am.  

To Do this Easter Break
  • ü  Pyjama Day (I had two half pyjama days but they don’t count).
  • ü  Specialist Visit
  • ü  Physio visit
  • ü  Hair Cut
  • £ Beauty Day (manicure, pedicure and a massage)
  • ü  School Work: Unit Planning, visit to school, marking (ick), classroom stuff
  • ü  Trip to Edsco (SHOPPING! YAY)
  • ü  Sleep in
  • ü  Read: “Around the World in 80 Days”
  • ü  Read something else… anything else.
  • £ Catch up with a bunch of people… lunch, dinner, movies,
  • £ Take Kid #1 out for his 13th birthday... a story worthy of its own post!
  • £ Get Organised (that’s a bit vague, I know)
  • ü  Work on the blogs… set up future posts and brainstorm future ideas. 
  • £ “Spring” clean the house and clear out EVERYTHING!

Now, before you go getting all confused or judgemental I think a few of these need some explanation:  
  1. "Beauty Day" was crossed out because I planned on it but my beauty therapist went on her own Easter Break and when she came back I could only manage to get in for a brow wax.  I am heading over there next week and I will get a manicure and pedicure, so while it hasn't happened yet, it will. 
  2. Catching up with a bunch of people is sort of half done.  I caught up with two of my teacher friends whom I haven't seen for a long time because they have both moved on to teach at other schools.  Hang on a minute, there wasn't anyone else I needed to catch up with, was there...? UUUMMM!!! I don't know, let's say I did do that, imagine there is a big tick next to that one. 
  3. Take Kid #1 out... I am doing that tonight and you will read all about it in the next week or so. 
  4. I crossed out "Get Organised" because while we had already acknowledged that it is vague I think we should recognise that vague tasks like "Get Organised" have no place on a proper to-do list. In other words, I haven't gotten organised. 
  5. I sort of Spring cleaned the house a bit.  I cleaned out my wardrobe and drawers and with my mother's help I rearranged the furniture in my bedroom.  I am gradually working my way through the bookshelf and placing books where they belong and throwing out things I no longer need (no books being thrown out, calm down, I haven't completely lost my mind).  

That's that then.
