I'm a compulsive list writer. If I don't I get easily distracted and don't achieve my goals. And there is nothing more satisfying than crossing something off a list.
So, I've got four whole days to get some things done around the place and I can't wait - that is as soon as I've written my list.
I want to finish my new garden bed this weekend. That'll involve several tasks...
And we have a film crew coming on Thursday to do a story on the donkeys so I'll have to tidy up that section of the yard. That'll involve several tasks...
Then there's the usual stuff cleaning, washing, tidying house stuff - more tasks...
In between all of that there's some animals that need tending, feeding, groomed, etc. - lots of tasks here...
Oh, and did I mention I get easily distracted?
See why I need a list!
