On weekly to-do lists

Not sure why I stopped doing it.

A lot of this is down to family commitments, but I also think that I have permitted myself to drift into an unstructured life and I don’t like that. It’s funny, but when I worked by day and did university by night, even though my daughter was young, I used to achieve so much more because structure was imposed upon me by my commitments.

    1. Yes, you strike me as the well organised type of person 🙂
