|I think I need this!|
The weeks seem to be flying by at the moment, and with so much to do I really don’t know where to start sometimes!
Thursday is usually my day to get jobs done in the house and finish up any work from the day job!!!! I think I need to sit down and make a “To Do” list as I suddenly remember something I should have done and dash off to do that and then forget the thing I was actually meant to be doing at that moment! My brain, I think, is scrambled at the moment!!!!
Christmas things are looming too. For DH’s family, the Aunts and Uncles, I have in the past few years done them Christmas food baskets with Christmas goodies in and things which will keep them going for a few weeks after Christmas too.
It gets harder and harder each year to think of presents. They all have their own homes which are full of their things, they don’t need clothes and I just hate buying things for the sake of buying things. I want the gifts to be appreciated and they are delighted with them. But it is sooooooo hard!!!!!!
I am also finding the same with our friends, who we buy gifts for. They are in the same lucky positions as having homes, jobs and everything they need, so I think they will be getting food baskets too! This, of course, means I have more jobs to do, four more Christmas cakes and puddings to make, as well as mince pies and chocolate truffles!!!
I always find with hampers you can by, like this Fortnum & Mason one, that they look pretty but do you really want what’s in them? Not to mention of course that they are frightfully expensive. Which is why I always make up my own. Especially when I know that no one will eat the Gentleman’s Relish in it (it really is disgusting!!!) but they will eat the tomato and apple one I make! I even do away with the basket and generally put them in a jute shopping bag, which they can use again and again when they go shopping.
So over the weekend, as well as all the quilting I need to do, I am going to set out a plan of action and will let you know how it goes over the next few weeks!!!
The weather here today is horrible, grey and rainy and its cold too, which makes me less inclined to get jobs done, but they will still be there tomorrow, if I don’t do them today. I may be getting my car back tomorrow, yeah I can’t wait! If we hadn’t had Eldest’s car we would have been in such a mess!
I have been worrying about things recently and last night, having gone to bed early as I didn’t feel too good, decided that worrying about it really wasn’t a good idea because at the end of the day what will be, will be and my worrying about it won’t change anything.
So my Thought for Thursday is just do what you can do and appreciate the day for what it is, tomorrow will happen and there is nothing you can do about it!
