Thanks for the starter, lennon.

I have done some things today, but feeling guilty because I have not posted here for so long; also last night I stayed up way too late and then slept in this morning.

Feeling somewhat overwhelmed by all the things that need to be done before I go away on my holiday/desert trip with my husband on Sunday.

Done: some tidying, shopping, washing, bin out, emails, phone G.

Things to do: hang out more washing, ring K, timesheet, pile of dishes, rationalise lists, prepare veg. for dinner, exercises, bring in dry washing, go to meditation, cook dinner, music with friends, more from lists if time remains.

Thank you all for being here.
