I think I have a problem and a happy find!


It's been a while since I last posted, I don't know where the time goes!

Today I have been turning the house upside down trying to find the 2nd part of my driving licence as Betty is going in for servicing tomorrow. I'm hoping it's not going to cost too much.....
Whilst turning out drawers I found the following:

Does anyone need this many notebooks?

12 notebooks! all in various states of use! I'm a great list maker and reading through some of them I previously thought alot about reducing my debt burden but never really took it as serious as I am now!
I also found a wonderful love letter written by Mr M for Valentines one year! He will often buy  me a lovely book for a treat on a special occasion, the suede book in the middle is one of my favs :-) I particularly seem drawn to books, pens and stationery in general at this time of year, I think it's many years of buying new pencil cases ready for the start of a new school year!!

It also got me thinking about blogging and writing  lists, I read  a lot of blogs ( prob too many, it's my nosey nature!) and many  bloggers write about  their to do lists/life lists/debt burdens. I still prefer to write mine down and physically tick them off although I do seem to have too many lists ; - )

How do you prefer to keep track of your lists?

Ps I must admit to being  very fond of my snowballing spreadsheet !


  1. I have always loved stationery, and listmaking. So family members have often given me notebooks as gifts. My recent loft emptying activities have revealed a whole GROCERY BOX full of exercise books which my Auntie gave me when I went off to Uni, as she thought I'd find them useful for notes/lists/whatever. That was in 1973 - and I am still trying to use them up!!
    They aren't as cute as your notebooks though.

    blessings xx

  2. I admit it...I have a stationery addiction as well and always have. There was nothing more exciting than a new pencil case for 'back to school'.

    You have a lovely selection of note books there. I'm going to treat myself to some nice notebooks and pens for going back to work.


  3. I need to join in the notebook collector club have a pretty delicious selection though! I love ticking things off a to do list - very satisfying x

  4. Angela, I wold love to see that box! And surely you're not old enough to have gone to uni in 1973? Must have been a mis-type x

    Mrs M, don't think of work yet! But I do find a nice book and pen make me feel more organised!

    Grace,I don't know about you but I find a written list mush easier and quicker to write/check.

    Nice to hear from you girls x


I love to read any comments, thanks for stopping by x
