5 Things for Me

Last night I sat down to make a plan. I have discovered that although I have time to do things that I like, I waste this time! How dreadful. So I made a plan to carve out some time to do stuff that I like/want to do. I titled it: 5 Things for Me Before Fiji. Here they are:

1. Complete the 20/20 Home Cure. The basic idea is that I spend 20 minutes a day doing a set challenge, which is different everyday, for 20 days.

2. Write a piece for a publication. I would like to clarify that I don’t need to get it published at this point, I just need to write it!

3. Ride my bike at the weekends. Self explanatory.

4. Finish one knitting project.

5. Finish reading one book.

I put this plan into action at 8pm last night, starting with challenge 1 for the 20/20 Home Cure. I cleaned my bedroom. It’s spick and span. I even “dressed” my chest of drawers.

It’s nice to be able to sit in my room and not stress out because I can’t see the floor.


Today’s 20/20 was to buy flowers. Easy, that. I then popped them in a vase in the living room. Stayed tuned for more pictures.

As for the novel, I’m reading Bill Bryson’s Mother Tongue.


Talk soon. x

    • Thanks! I took it myself. 😉
      Ah the knitting. I’m currently working on a cape/circular scarf type thing. I don’t like to mention it too much because the knitting mistress is fickle and can sometimes be distracting. I’ll post shots in the next few days.
      Come back and check!

  1. That’s a great idea, 20/20, though that man has a bazillion fewer things than I do!! Good luck with your knitting and writing and flower buying. It is a nice photo. Co-incidentally I gave the lounge room a lick and a promise yesterday!!!

    • Yes as I am going through his 20/20, like today’s find inspiration, I am thinking that I could spend my 20 minutes in many more productive ways! Alas today is nearly over and I have no time left to change to another task. Perhaps when I think I could do more, I will. And I’ll make a video blog about it! Ah Ha!
      I do like a good co-incidence 2paw!

  2. I like the 20/20 idea. I went home for lunch today and did 20 minutes of vacuuming and picking up. Feels so much better.

    Next task – 20 minutes of knitting NOT ravelry browsing.
