I do a weekly lists of things I must do and want to do and the standard shopping list on a very regular basis. This time of year is worse as I now have the who to buy for list, what to buy for whom list, to make for list, the what to make list, the postal card list, the hand delivered list, the bought card list, the hand made card list, cards not written yet list, the to buy food list, the got food list, the to bake food list.
Though each year the two most important lists live in my purse and they are the girls christmas lists (yes they still write them for me) and I was surprised at how many shop assistants this year (men and women) commented on how organised I was and what a good idea when they saw me checking my lists with my full basket. (personally I think they were just humouring me - but who cares!!) if only they knew how unorganised I really am :)
Below is a combination of the lists outstanding
Door stop granny,
Something for Margaret and David,
Something, anything for granny and grandad,
Awaiting last few postal deliveries,
B's bf ????
Biscuits Aunty Do and Uncle John,
Deliver cousins presents,
They will all get done and those that don't will go on to the new Jan 2012 list - as it isn't worth stressing about.
