10 things I NEED to do


10 things I NEED to do

I don’t know about you but unless I write things down I forget to do them. I was recently reading through other blogs, this is something I enjoy doing when I have a bit of spare time and a nice cup of tea, when reading I came across A Cornish Mum Blog and her great link up.

So now I am going to make myself a to-do-list of 10 things I NEED to do, I have been meaning to do these for ages now and I really do need to get these done.

1) Pack a hospital bag, I am due to go in hospital and I just know if I don’t start packing soon or at least make a list I will forget something.

2) Find the cupboard under my stairs, there is one there somewhere amongst the clutter.

3) Sort out my old clothes, now I am 2 & 1/2 stone lighter I am in desperate need of new ones

4) Buy a new bedroom carpet, our carpet is so old now it is not at its best.

5) File our letters, I keep meaning to do this but now all I have done is accumulate a to-do pile in our bedroom which is now starting to get rather high.

6) Start making our Brit mums plans, this will be our first year attending and we are rather nervous and excited all at the same time.

7) Hunt for a new tumble dryer as ours decided to stop working. I hardly use it but the boys do if their PE kit or sports kit is not quite dry.

8) Hunt for a romantic getaway for August as it will be mine and Ian’s crystal wedding anniversary this year and we would like a nice quiet relaxing break for 1-2 nights. Ian surprised me with a nice break to Venice for my 30th birthday a few years back so I would like to do something similar for our anniversary this year.

9) Plan some fun family day-trips, with the better weather on the way we’d best get planning on where we want to visit this summer.

10) Learn to organise myself a bit better, I am so unorganised lately it is beginning to show now, I am normally pretty good with planning ahead but of late it just doesn’t seem to be happening.

Do you have to write things down to help you remember jobs needing to be done?

***Disclaimer: I have not been compensated in any way to write this post***


  1. Haha, yes, I’m terrible at remembering things however as I work a lot on my computer I use a calendar on there that gives me pop-up reminders. It’s especially handy with regular events, so if there’s something I need to do weekly, I just have to enter it the once and then tick a box to have it repeat.

    I tend to put all the boring chore ones on ‘snooze’ a lot though 😉

  2. That’s a good list! Congrats on the weight loss and I personally love a new carpet. We got a new carpet on our landing just before christmas and it is lovely and plush. xx

  3. Thanks for linking up 🙂 I need a ridiculous number of lists to keep me organised, if it’s not on a list I usually remember it when it is too late these days! My diary and notepad are definitely essentials to keep things going smoothly, and I shudder to think what it would be like to lose either!!

  4. I am sooooo unorganized. Before the baby I hid it well as I’d just do what people needed me to straight away before I forgot. But now constant (albeit cute) interruptions plus baby brain means almost nothing gets finished.

  5. Im useless at lists. they never get completed. im also useless at remembering anything. I was supposed to have made a phonecall this morning but ive only just remembered, and im currently waiting on a phonecall so dont want to block the line..

  6. I love making lists and I do have to write stuff down otherwise I forget! x

  7. Glad to hear it,s not just me Stevie. Oh god i dread to think about if i was to lose my list/diary lol X

Thank you for reading. We would love to hear your thoughts?
