I am a list person.  I have one big list that covers many things and at this time of the year the list is longer than usual.  Added to the usual must do things that Christmas brings upon us we have all the Hayden must do things before the festive season shuts down many businesses for a couple of weeks.  It would be awful to run out of any part of his medication.  We are also hosting Christmas for my inlaws at DH is going to be away for Christams an early Christmas for us.

I know many people would be saying I need to have an electronic diary.  Trust me, I thought long and hard about one of these and apart from making my handbag lighter I am not sure that there are too many other benefits.  I need to be able to see more than one page at once.  I keep not only Haydens important to know information but the days DH is away and home on his work roster, the days that I am working plus all those other to do things that crop up in everyday life.  I need a full page for each day and my system requires colour coding with hilighters and instant access to months gone by.  Of course I write everything down.  Without doing that I find it hard to sleep as I keep waking up thinking that I must remember this that and the other thing.

So roll on the finishing of the lists so that I can get in the groove of more of this kind of life during the long summer holidays.
