BitchytheGreat Wed 22-Jan-14 18:53:04

confused i thought i warned you it was going to be a long list kinda day? confused

Wow, bitchy, that is an amazing list, well done! grin
Will catch up with personals later, just had to say how impressed I was by bitchy's list and mark my place

ToffeeWhirl Wed 22-Jan-14 19:00:32

We can never be prepared for a list like that, Bitchy wink.

BitchytheGreat Wed 22-Jan-14 19:03:12

Should i skip posting it's update then? grin

GoingGoingGoth Wed 22-Jan-14 20:29:13

And Bitchy retakes the long list record!
That's amazing.

Finished marking my place, so will be back tomorrow, as I have an berry strudel in the oven calling out to me (bought not made)

I'm here, pottering along, really not much Flying in between school, work, OU, statement stuff etc, but just about keeping on top of things. Did a fairly decent blitz of my bedroom yesterday.

DS started at trampoline coaching today and loved it, he has been to the occasional session before but we found that there was a regular one for his age group that fits right in the middle of DD being at Brownies (sports centre is next to Guide Hut), so that's a result. I'm really tired, don't think I slept well last night (I seem to remember one of the cats climbing and out again of my bit of duvet). Cat that was poorly seeming yesterday has been fine today, ate her breakfast very happily and has eaten a lot since, no more retching so I suspect it was just a hairball (which I will probably find somewhere later, gross).

MerryBuddha Wed 22-Jan-14 23:08:43

I have posted on the other thread, but just marking my place.

dizzyday07 Wed 22-Jan-14 23:25:58

BitchytheGreat Thu 23-Jan-14 08:32:43

Don't panic dontstep you should build up to the missions I am currenrtly ignoring all missions until i have got on top of the clutter. I will be ignoring for a few more years yet hmm You'll get them eventually. Just remember - no perfectionism.

BitchytheGreat Thu 23-Jan-14 09:14:07

Right now I have frozen and got completely soaked on the school run. lets have a look at the babysteps and the links for today and yesterday because NONE of you complained about the lack of links, did you even look for them?

Babystep 22

Babystep 23

Both these are control journal based.

missions

thursday is errand day. Tbh it is horrid out there i don't blame you if you'd rather not got out of the house any more then necessary.

Definitely gearing up for errand day today. Bit of work to do this morning first though. Might even tackle the mission later on. hmm

By the way, and totally un-flying-related, these are the boots I bought yesterday. Currently wearing them around the house in an attempt to decide whether or not I like them... a bit pointier in the toe than I normally wear.

3 children off to school
walked ds2 to school in order to deliver ds1's geography book which he had forgotten (that would be yet another detention, and he would miss homework club, so totally counterproductive) - although on the other hand he may get a detention just for the low quality of the homework confused

lots of walking/exercise

now curled up in bed with cuddly cat, might have a nap - no-one comes home till after 5pm today shock
