Update to the list!

I haven't been forgetting about the list that I posted at the beginning of last week, and I have managed to cross quite a few of the items on the list off.

I am thinking that I may have left some to do this week that I should have done this week now that I have seen the extended forecast like all the gardening!! Yowsers it is going to be hot this week - 28C tomorrow, 38C Monday, 39C Tuesday, 40C Wednesday, 35C Thursday and 34C on Friday. (That's 82F tomorrow, and then over 90F for the rest of the week with a peak of 104F)

Here's the list as it stands currently.


Clean out fridge and freezer, including behind and on top.
Clean out all the kitchen cupboards
Clean out food cupboard

Spare room

Empty at least one of those boxes that has been there since I moved house. It will be a pleasant surprise to see what I find I am sure.
Fold all clothes
Reorganise craft table with an eye to getting reinspired into making some things.

My room

Empty at least one of those boxes that has been there since I moved house. It will be a pleasant surprise to see what I find I am sure.


Reorganise linen cupboard

Son's Room

Tidy up. This took four days last year. Hopefully won't take as long this year.
Check for too small clothes


Mow the lawns/weeds
Weed the front gardens
Take the dead heads off of the roses


Sweep it out


Get it cleaned.

I have managed to do some things other than chores. I took my son to play mini-golf yesterday. I might not be able to always beat him at table tennis anymore but I can still whip his butt at mini-golf! I''ve also had a manicure, been out for dinner and spent a lot of time with some family members. All in all, not too bad a first week. Tomorrow is Australia Day, and I was planning to have a barbecue here with a few people, but one of those people fell off a ladder today and is currently at the hospital, so those plans may well change.

I even managed to finish a book which is pretty amazing given the slump that I am in reading wise, and I made something craft wise as well!


  1. Wow, good work, Marg! I love crossing things off my to-do list. I couldn't sleep last night, and used the time to clear out my bedroom "junk" drawers, which was quite liberating! Now there is so much more room. I don't know when I will do that again- probably in a few years. Haha.

    I know what a reading slump can be like, and how long they can last- hopefully you get out of it soon!

  2. There's nothing quite as satisfying as crossing something off a list eh Marg? I have an equally big list of household chores but not sure I will get too much done this week either as its 35 today then 41 predicted for the rest of the week. Ugh I hate summer.

    Anyway, happy Australia Day, hope your friend recovers from their fall and, when you get your hands on the library copy of The Girl Who Played with Fire I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

  3. Look at you on the ball! I barely managed to get all the clothes and dishes washed this week in addition to my reading lol. Maybe I ought to make my own list...

  4. Ladytink, I actually had people coming around for dinner today, and so the house looks REALLY really tidy, as long as you don't look too closely! I should take a picture to remind me of what it can look like!

    Where are you in Australia Bernadette? They have just revised our temperature here for this week. We are expecting 38, 41, 40, 40 and 40 for the next few days! Yuck!

    Aarti, I hope my slump doesn't last too long. This is my second bad month in a row!
