What to do

I've made my "to do" list for the coming week and just for a change I think that I may have overstretched myself. Well maybe not, a couple of them are looking up things that have already been written and evaluating them so that maybe won't take too long. The main thing that I MUST get on with is the one that has a deadline to meet. That one has to be done.
This is totally writing unrelated but I must tell you because it's making me smile. I am currently as I type in the middle of a text conversation with my ex boss who is complaining about the lack of talent (amongst other things) in my home town. I've not lived there for nearly 30 years so I don't think that I can be held responsible. But maybe I can because when I worked for him I was responsible for just about everything else. Good job he's a pal. He was the first person outside my very close family and a particular friend that I told when I had my first story published. However that is the only one I have ever told him about. However there's been no text for a few minutes so maybe he's finally found something worthy of his attention.
Anyway I digress.
I'll let you know how I get on with my "to do" list. However tonight I think that the first thing to do might be to go to bed as it's almost 11pm.

Good luck with the list. Mine is also quite scary!

I hope you got a good night sleep and wasn't laying awake worrying about the lack of talent in your area.

Does your ex boss go by the name of Simon, by a chance? ;-)

Oh that list Helen! One of these days I'm going to get to the bottom of it.
Oh Jarmara - don't worry I didn't lose any sleep over any lack of anything as far as my ex boss is concerned. I NEVER lost sleep over him. Actually he is a fantastic friend and we giggle together a lot.

Every now and then I find an old to-do list (sometimes years old) and, frequently, not one thing's crossed off. Scary things, to-do lists.

I lost this weeks to do list Suzanne so maybe I'll find it lurking in a dark corner one day.
