Pavlova was a ballerina

This morning I finally stripped the bed that Elder Son and Daughter-in-law slept in when they stayed two weeks ago. It reminded me of our visits to the in-laws.

On the morning of our departure Mother-in-law would have our bed stripped, the sheets washed and out on the line before we'd left. Now that is a housewife to aspire to. Or perhaps not.

I just read a note I'd left for myself as I NK. 'What's that mean?' Careful thought. 'Oh wait, it's ink. I need to order ink.' Or toner as Husband insists on calling it.

I've started wearing my long glasses for driving. In the past I've only used them for rugby matches in New Zealand. I should like to reassure those whom I drive around that my eyesight without glasses is still better than Husband's with glasses so you're safe with me. as far as eyesight goes. Admittedly Husband is a better driver ...

Have nearly finished my article for the next issue of The Bay. Just have to write the God bit. And I am sitting here at my desk where I seem to have stalled. Not just in writing but generally. Lots to do but can't decide the order.

What I should do is what Husband suggests. 'If it's not important just pick one and do it.' Then again he says the same thing when I'm dithering over menu choices in a restaurant. And we know how disastrous a bad choice of food can be.

Which reminds: it's lunchtime. That's what I'll do next!

I made a good decision yesterday with my raspberry pavlova sundae.

Your sundae looks delicious.
Notes left to myself are often a curiosity never solved.
People wouldn't know you weren't a perfect homemaker if you didn't advertise, haha. On quiet days, who knows if I polished and cleaned or not?

Re: Choosing what to do next amongst tasks with the same priority:
The optimal algorithm is to choose the shortest task each time. That way you get the most tasks done in the time available.

Either that, or learn to prioritise better ;-)

Did you go to the Eisteddfodd (sp?) this year, Liz?
If so, please blog your photos :-)

It was delicious, Sharon!

Too late to teach an old dog new tricks, Stu! No, not to the eistedfodd this year. In fact never!
