Not into making 'lists' really @ 06:24 pm

I make lists when necessary but because most of the 'things to do' involved sifting/sorting up my life either material or mental - that is all in my head!

The list this week is still in the making...

Monday: ph S @ Disability/Uni to get her schedule for today and Wed, need to go in and sign more forms for Uni (TICK DONE)
Went in: found a whiteboard saying that D/Uni had gone to a meeting, so took the pen and wrote on board "Cathy was here, back later on" (apparently when S got back from meeting and saw that - she remembered that she hadn't said won't be there for an hour today.
Went back later: form all (TICK DONE)

Monday: ph Warehouse Stationery about the kitset desk I bought at end of January. My friend got to last step on instruction sheet = #15 which was put sliding keyboard tray in; which he did and then showed me how it worked AND the metal slide with ballbearing fell out onto the floor - 10 ball bearings running around the carpet. Explained everything to some lassie on phone. (TICK DONE)
Phil called my answerphone whilst I was out...I called him back later. Phil is coming on Wednesday about 11ish to fix it!

Tuesday: tomorrow: Embroidery Meeting in the morning, but I am not staying to hear the speaker because I don't think I can cope with 3x!

Tuesday: 4pm appointment at WINZ to sort out Disability Allowance - adding heating/power and lawn care cost; Temporary Additional Support renewal; Training Incentive Allowance which gives me about $3,500.00 each year towards to transport costs and fees for the Academic year (so VIP)

Wednesday: Phil is coming to fix desk. Plan to make a pumpkin soup for freezer + some other things baked for freezer.

Friday: luncheon date with friend (we have been trying to connect for weeks!)

Other at anytime this week:
Phone my sister - chat, no reason
Get on with the yarn dyeing (sorted out the colourways yesterday)
Friend coming to help dismantle wood couch and then take wood away for her firebox
Try to make it a tidy-er downstairs i.e. put yarn in other room...
? launder some more fabric.

in between all that do a lot of nothing...listening to Radio Huraki; playing computer games and generally doing nothing at computer. Read some more about Asian Identities and continue looking at ghetto/African history of.

I'm tired just reading your list. So this is resting up before the year starts?

the rest...starts on the 22nd!

when I must stop sifting/sorting and put the house into a sleep mode i.e. I can come home and crash at night from Uni without thinking I need to 'do something'

some of the things on that list about 'going back to Uni' - the desk is to be placed in another room and my computer etc shifted in there (friend will do that transfer) so that come Winter, I can warm just one room!! The desk in here is not a computer type desk but one of those old executive ones so it's not doing a very good job!!

writing things down

At the moment my life is simple enough that I usually don't have to write things down. But it's nice that I can use pen and paper as a tool when I start feeling overwhelmed. Then just putting them down on paper and getting them out of my head helps a lot.
