Sometimes I have things that I keep meaning to do, but just never seem to get ticked of the list (oh, how I love a good list). One of them is printing our photos and putting them in albums. I did it about 18 months ago and ne'er was it done again.

We got a really awesome album as a wedding present and i've been meaning to fill it. Finally, on Friday, I ordered the prints. And today they arrived. Hoorah. How I love to get parcels. So now there are pictures everywhere and a stack of albums waiting eagerly to finally get the opportunity to do their job.

Now I just need to find the time to do that. Not quite sure when though. This is a rough idea of the next 10 days.
Finish quilt before Saturday
Make paper chains
Have a serious sort out of the living room
Decorate house for Christmas
Wrap presents
Knit, knit, knit
Special gathering on Sunday
Finish logo designs for my business by Monday
Work, work, work
Seeing the first night of my Dad's latest play on Thursday
Christmas meal at work
Have a cup of tea with my Grandparents while they're up here visiting
Welcome some of the most awesome buddies who arrive next Friday for a weekend of fun (hence early Christmas decorating and major tidy up)

Blimey. That list is even longer than I thought.


  1. Ugh, ordering prints and sorting them is one of my dreaded to-do list tasks. While it is fun to look at them, it's so tedious to go through ALL of them. Good luck!

  2. Sometimes those lists seem so big-I try to give myself 3 or 4 things to cross off every day, which is so much easier! I'm sure you'll pull it all off with aplomb!

  3. Wow, don't you have fun things on the horizon. Enjoy. I'm so excited about this festive season xx

  4. Sounds like someone is going to be a busy girl for the next few days! It is so that time of year though, when you start thinking about all the things you wanted to accomplish and haven't yet!

  5. I've been arranging a photo album for the longest time but I've given up, the photos are now just piled together in a plastic bag (very bad of me). But I'm sure you can do a much better job ;)

  6. *sigh* I do love a good list. It's a shamne about having to actually do whats on them hey... Good luck my dear!

  7. busy lady - i am excited about all your projects - go you!

  8. I am with you on having a looming list. I've been meaning to make photo albums for each year and now all of a sudden I am 4 years behind. yikes!!

  9. first off: "blimey" ?! you are so cool! I love the uk. second: your life over the next few days sounds super fun! I even like the balance of work and festive relaxing fun! xo enjoy!

  10. I am now obsessed with using the phrase "parcels" for packages in the mail and will now use that term exclusively...so charming!!

    Finishing my quilt has been on my list since the summer...maybe this weekend I'll finally harness that too!! Annnnnd - our pictures are still sitting in boxes...I want a pretty album to put them in!!

  11. Good luck finishing everything!! I've been wanting to make an "advent" paper chain to count down to christmas, I need to hurry! :) Can't wait to see your logo designs!!! xo.

  12. Wow- I think that looks amazing! I also posted a drink today but yours looks way more elegant!
    Have a lovely weekend!

  13. you're one busy lady! I'm totally with you on the photo printing. I'm embarrassed to admit that aside from his birth announcement card, we haven't yet printed one single photo of our son. I'm hoping to cross that off my to do list before the end of the year! xx
