The key to success is...

...organisation. I admit it. I'm a list maker. But it really is true. Today, I had a 'good day'. Last night, for the first time in a while, I made a list of everything I wanted to get done today. Mainly boring chores (like sorting Elder Martini's clothes that he's grown out of to go into storage) that have been hanging over me for a while, but despite the fact I'm not working still don't seem to get done.

All but one item was successfully ticked off the list - and that item (buying Mr. Martini's birthday present - it's not until the end of November, but I'd like to have it sorted before Mini Martini makes an appearance) is top of the list for tomorrow. Also on the list is drawing up the Christmas list. I love Christmas, so this isn't really a chore - I starting my shopping a while back and was actually waiting for the shops to stock cards. I was surprised they arrived as early as they did (is it like this every year and I just missed it?), but I was first in line. Even the shop assistant raised an eyebrow when I took them up to the till. 

So, make a list. Hell, make two. If you're like me, just making the list will help make you feel better. Organised? Check. Relaxed? Check. Job done? Check.
