Making Lists....

This week my Word of the Week is.....
 I do love a good list and this week I seem to have been writing loads this last week....

I seemed to have a lot to do yesterday and I seem to work better when I have something to aim for....I have even added an app to my phone....Just a simple one but it saves me losing all the bits of paper or forgetting about something.....A little tick in those boxes makes me very happy!!


Stu is off work again next week using the last of his holidays before they reset in April.....He has decided he is going to be cooking tea every night so I have been adding things to the shopping list as he comes up with ideas....A week off from cooking! I can't wait!!

While he is off work he is planning to paint the girls rooms so I have been making lists of what we need.....Pale pink for Ellie's room and light purple for Becky's, brushes & rollers....

Stu has also been listing things on eBay....He's done quite well....He is a hoarder especially when it comes to computer parts....He has boxes and drawers full of bits and has sold quite a few bits on eBay over the past week.....They're not going to make us rich but a couple of pound here and there will come in handy.....

The kids have been making lists about what they want to do over half term.....They break up a week today and have lots of ideas for days out and things we can do in the house....I will have to agree to some of them but going to Disney land like Ellie suggested is just not possible! I really wish it was!!

  8. I have commented earlier but am not sure if it went in so heres another try =)

    Selling on ebay is something that i want to do because there are few things in the house that i want to get rid of but I am scared to start it.

    Sounds like you will have fun week ahead =) #woyw

    1. It's not that scary until it comes to sending the stuff to the buyer....I always panic they won't receive it!
      Thank you! x
