No excuse to get around to in now !
« on: Saturday 21 March 20 16:10 GMT (UK) »
I really no longer have any excuse not to put my 40th birthday photos into the lovely album I bought 14 years ago, better do it before I turn 55 ;D

What have you put off ?

After that I intend to sort out the Lego, I don’t think my son who’s turns 30 next week plays with it much  :D

Put off a trip to China, Vietnam/Laos/Cambodia last year...

I put everything off so am going to be extremely busy!

I even set to work and did some housework this morning  :o 

On the decorating front am going to paint the white wood by the stairs cream to see how it looks.
If good the doors are going to join in.

I've got almost completely up-to-date with all the mending, minor repair, "I'll do that when I've time..." jobs I've been putting off for ages! We've even fixed a wonky door, cleaned out the moss growing round the windows of one of our cars, cleaned the outside of the cat flap .... cleaned a load of slippy moss off a garden path, pruned / thinned out crowded branches on a potentilla and a philadelphus ( not really sure I should have done either at this time of year but ... what the hell, it's done now....
Wow! What might I have managed by the summer? Finally might get round to trying to improve my Italian? Finish off a half-made bobbin lace motif, still pinned to its pillow in the loft? (no: the reason it got abandoned was a cat came to live here, and several felines since then would all wreck it if I got it out and tried to continue) Might I even finally turn out the bulging drawer in the filing cabinet that has every payslip and bankstatement since the year dot, lurking there?
-Or I could take a glass of red and see if I can make a list of them, in order to prioritise the tasks ... when I get round to that.

Sadly, I have had my holiday in India cancelled.  Perhaps I can now sort out all the wildlife photos I took on the last one!

TY, - snap, - Ive been trying to learn Italian for years!

Try downloading the free Duolingo AP, - it really helps...

My U3A Italian Group have decided to continue meeting online. (The only downside is that we've all got homework to do:-)
