This morning I had great plans and I was going to start to cross off my “Things to do” list before the ink faded through age. In order to get my mind sorted as to what to tackle first, I have learned over the years that it is easier to put things down on paper, and lo and behold it has become a short Saturday morning blog.
There is a new Blogger/Tweeter on the block called The Cake Shelf and this morning I thought, today was going to be a good day to bake, as it looked so grim outside. Now the sun is shining the great outdoors is calling. So how far have I got down my list?
* I have wiped all my skirting boards – this job was not actually on my list but when Daughter #1 complained this morning that her cleaner had not done this, it made me take a second look at mine (I don’t do my skirting boards very often I am not ashamed to say) .
* I have polished my #8 on the front door with Brasso and the door knob and the letter box and the lock – it all looks very sparkling now.
* Then, of course, with shiny bits showing up the front door I washed down it down followed by the surrounds – all this is not on my list either but it just had to be done! I only found the Brasso because I was looking for something under the sink. See how things snowball?
The morning is nearly over, I have had my sit down and my mid-morning coffee and I shall head on outside. Now with a very clean front door, I am going to work on the front garden and tidy that up – the daffodils are coming through and the iris is peeping up to say hello.
And my list? Oh well that can wait for another day.
