Thing to do in 2013

If you have been reading my blog you will know that I have a list for everything from cleaning, crafts and work. It helps me in my day to day life to stay focused and it helps keep the anxiety down to a minimum. I also find that if I’m going through a depressive time by doing things on the list which there’s a good chance I cant be arsed to do then it perks me up.

I thought as we are over half year through 2013 that I would share my list with you and ticked off the completed ones. I’ll be honest with you I was hoping to get more completed but life has just got in the way. I warn you the list is long and in no particular order………..
