My enormous new house to do list: in order of priority!

So day 3 of being in the new pad (I don’t count Monday given the 14.30 entry and 16.30 exit to the pub for most of the early evening, then bed) and I’ve finally prioritized my to do list… as below.

I’ve had to settle for working my way through this gradually as I want to keep up my ‘work’ schedule, get back into my work-out schedule (I’ve just joined a gym) and generally lounge around a lot and eat muffins.

I’m some of the way through it… the crossed off bits. And I’m quite happy as I’ve done a lot of the most urgent tings.

My main principle for prioritizing was money! I’ve tackled most of the items which were costing me the most money first – such as terminating my storage unit and axing my two phone contracts (necessary for my liminal phase) and putting them into one; and I’ve bought the stuff which is going to be conducive to keeping me working first: i.e. tables, I’ve discovered I can’t work effectively slumped against a wall.

The Monstrous to do list…

Should be dealt with by the end of October…

Companies to inform of move/ money tings to do…

  20. Try applying for a new interest free credit card (before buying new oven/ P.C.)

  3. Join Gym
  4. Unpack and sort stuff from storage unit (one whole day)
  5. Minor weeding in front garden.
  6. Collect stuff from Dad’s (November)

Final Thoughts…

I’m going to stop beating myself up for not killing this in a week like I’d hoped… most of the above tasks are utterly tedious and so I’ve had to battle with losing the will to live while churning my way through them.

Every task also seems to take three times as long as I’d planned for some reason – sorting out my new Broad Band connection took me an hour, for example.

I’m also frustrated that my work rate has dropped following all of this moving faff. I’m gonna try and just get more on the churn tomorrow and put the rest of these moving chores to the arse end of the day. Most of the important shit’s done now.

I’m not including getting to know people on the list. That should just happen organically. Maybe?!?

  4. I’m commenting to let you be aware of of the awesome discovery my child developed browsing the blog. She came to find a good number of details, including how it is like to have a great coaching character to get a number of people clearly completely grasp a number of advanced issues. You actually did more than her desires. I appreciate you for churning out such beneficial, dependable, edifying and cool guidance on that topic to Emily.
