last week, 26th May - 1st June, was half term - whoopee!
That's when I catch up on housework that hasn't been done, odd-jobs, filing, work-related admin, and do a lot of sleeping. I try and meet up with friends that I can't see during term-time.
I had a to-do- list with 26 items:
lesson write-ups and lesson planning, school reports, marking, going through and sorting out the various bags I use for the different schools and music club that I teach through the week and so forth, getting my pay claim in for a 27th May deadline
gardening - a back-log of weeding, extracting earth from the compost bin
de-cluttering tasks in the bed room - under the bed, on top of the wardrobe, clearing the bookshelves
perhaps even finishing a couple craft projects, maybe manage to meet a friend for coffee.
household - a mountain of laundry, some Proper Cleaning, some Serious Tidying-Up.
There were 30 items on the list. I got 10 done. The weekdays had been pretty much filled with other family activities.
So, here were are, a week later, and still 20 items on the list from last week, and another half-dozen added.
It's been a busy morning so far.
