  • A long time ago now, I went through a bit of a purple patch and was beating myself up about not getting done what needed to be done so I sat down and wrote a list of jobs I felt I should be doing. I used an A4 pad and ended up with 2 columns on 3 pages, before the days of PC's etc.

    It was a good exercise as it made me realise I could not possibly do everything at the same time. I used to feel guilty if I was "enjoying" doing jobs in the garden when I ought to be doing something inside the house. Then it was a case of prioritising,  essential jobs first, like cooking meals. I crossed each job off as it was completed. I even pinned the list up on the kitchen wall, hoping someone might offer to help or be persuaded to help, dog walking seemed the only job anyone else wanted to do. 

    I never did finish doing everything.
