The 2016 To-do List

0

I don’t make proper New Year’s resolutions, but there are a number of things on my to-do list for 2016. It’s a mixed bag from drafting a will to buying book shelves…

to-do list items

The to-do list

    • Get photos printed – actually print out the photos that are on memory cards and then put them into frames and actually put them up around the house. I also want to update the girls’ albums – something I haven’t done for about two years! 🙁
    • Do the small niggly home improvements – Not renovating rooms or anything, but stuff that’s easy to do and would actually make a difference: replace all the lightbulbs that aren’t working around the house (there are many), change old sockets and finally get round to filling in the holes in the walls left behind when we replaced curtains with shutters
    • Get bedding that actually fits the bed – I mistakenly bought a super kingsize mattress for our queensize bed. It was an old bed so we got a new one to accommodate the huge mattress, but didn’t replace the bedding. For months my head’s been falling down the gulf between the pillows and the bedsheets have continually pinged off making it really uncomfortable. For someone that has very broken sleep anyway, it’s bordering on the masochistic. My first to-do list tick. The only thing I’ve hit the sales for. Massive bargains to be had in the world of bedding 
    • Draft a will – Matt and I keep saying we have to both do one. We never quite get round to it. It’s really important when children are involved, so 2016 is going to be the year

car maintenance to-do

  • Car maintenance – Get the re-occurring car window problem fixed whilst the parts and labour are still under warranty – second week of January got this to-do ticked off
  • Sell more stuff at Mum2Mum Markets and online – I need to declutter and sell anything that isn’t suitable for charity shops. Always nice to make some extra cash in the process; I’ve been quite successful in the past. I wrote about it here
  • Expand my recipe repertoire – I’d like to set aside an evening or two with the cookery books to get some family meal inspiration. The meal planner needs updating!
    Organisation to-do
  • Get an additional book shelf – The girls have always had loads of books, but following birthdays and Christmas they have a lot more and they’re stating to clutter. Sofia has a big book case and Maria and Gabriella already have two of the lovely Star Book Ledges from the Great Little Trading Company (GLTC) and they’re great.They are also rather pricey. I need to get at least another one and I am currently stalking the GLTC website in the hope that they are put into the sale
  • Make a dental appointment – my dental practice doesn’t ever send reminders. The upshot is, rather embarrassingly, it’s been rather a while since my last visit
