Taking a leaf out of b_liz's book...

Today I am going to attack all the jobs I've been putting off until a suitable occasion... So let's play housework bingo. I have a to do list with 70 things on it. Give me a number from 1 to 70 and I will do that task and report back.

And please do feel free to throw more than one number at me!

Thank you :)

9 - Sort desk drawer no.2
10 - Sort desk drawer no.3
For good measure, I also did numbers 8 and 11 which were sort desk drawers no.1 and no.4!
18 - Tidy up pile of embroidery threads
66 - Clean hob

45 is take notes from a recorded TV program so I can delete the recording. I'll be doing THAT once I've caught up with everything at the PC.

How about, instead of a number from your list, you throw away or give away 10 things?

P.S. Your icon has hypnotized me.

Believe it or not, I've already passed that mark - I think I'm up to eight items going to charity and I've tossed out a bin load of assorted rubbish (everything from empty pill packets [why do I keep these??? WHY????!] to a small mound of scrap paper, which has gone into the recycling).

(and I get that a lot about this icon *grin*)

Yay!

If you find yourself having to clean up a lot of rubbish, then it might be that you don't have enough wastebaskets or trash cans around your house.

It's a nice thought *grin* But I think it's more to do with the fact that I am a total slob... Well, that, plus I'm a writer, which tends to lead me to printing out stuff to edit, then re-print, then edit s'more, then re-print... I was actually kinda impressed I only had three drafts of the last essay I was working on lying around!

Then make sure you have plenty of paper recycling bins around. :-)
