A new list

The weeks fly by normally but I know the next six weeks will be travelling ultra quick!  I enjoy the Christmas preparations but I usually hit chritmas day running and feel I have missed out on many pre Christmas events.   

This morning whilst surfing Pinterest I saw a "100 things to do this winter"list. Now like many of you I LOVE lists. The list was really good (can't find it now lol) but there was a lot of things on there that I would not want to do, so I decided to make up my own list of '100 things to do before Christmas'.  Now I know I shall most likely not achieve the whole list as there is only 46 days left until Christmas Eve ( yep sorry to break that news but only 46 days until Santa arrives), but I shall see what I can do and hopefully by the time Christmas as arrives I will have crossed some off and enjoyed the build up to the weekend and collected a whole bunch of new memories. 

So here is my list so far, as you will notice my list hasn't reached 100 yet, which does make it more achievable but it means I can add to it as I think of more things to put on it.  Some of the items are very obvious and would be done anyway but they still need to be done :) (a slight cheat I guess ;)

    1. Lol I probably don't either but will give it a go, I like to think I will tick off some of the not so obvious items as well as the obvious!!

  2. Haha Karen, I have "write to Karen" on my mental list of things to do this month, after I tidy my desk, have a bit of a declutter and a few other things, don't think I'll attempt 100 though.
