Smile What would you like to do in the next 6 months

I was sitting here planning what I would like to achieve in the next six months - a very long list I can assure you. But it started out something like this...
Put all of my single recipes into books
Gather all of my food magazines together and sort them out and place them
in binders.
Lose weight
Pack away most of my summer clothing and "autumn clean" the house in time for winter.
Pre-cook more meals and place them in the freezer for worknights.
Go away for a weekend with my husband to the Hunter Valley vineyards in winter and sit in front of a log fire and drink fine wine.

Just for starters.

I'll take your list and change on thing:

Pack away ALL of my winter clothing and "spring clean" the house in time for summer - but I would need to do that in the next 30 days because in 6 months I will just do it your way

My list is sooooo long but it includes painting the outside of my house, renovating the kitchen and bathroom in the guest house, clearing out all the stuff I have stored in the basement and posting it all on Freecycle and spending as many weekends as I can at the beach!

Staying alive is always my #1!
Stop my back verandah from flooding each time the rain is a little on the heavy- or long-(duration that is, not drop-size!) side.
Put up the stereo that I got for my birthday and is still in the box
Thoroughly clean my house in time for... well, anything really!
Getting rid of all the old junk papers that I have accumulated cos I never knew quite what to do with but have never referred back to!
Get rid of the boxes from the office back to the office (which surprisingly nobody seems to have missed in 18 months! Says something about who did most of the work there I think!!!)
Get my fridge repaired
Buy a new microwave
Get a freezer
Flog some of the things that I no longer want

Kitchenelf, not that much to put away from summer, our summer was really cool and rainy but thought it would be a good time to go through the whole wardrobe.

Expatgirl, chardonnay or shiraz.

Bilby, you sound as busy as me. All this cooking you and I are doing is bringing winter on I think, soup anyone...

I have a long list. In the next 6 months I would like to...

1. Pay our house off.
2. Pay our bills off.
3. Buy a car (Used/nearly new, with few miles).
4. Start a savings account (we just have a no-interest checking account).
5. Visit family and friends in various parts of the country (and maybe Edmonton if we get the chance).
6. Visit with Marge when she comes back here to visit.
7. Lose weight.
8. Cheer James on as he finishes his CAD training.
9. Give James all the support I can as he looks for a good CAD job.
10. Clean and organize the house
11. Sew, sew, sew.
12. Sell lots of stuff on ebay.

Well it looks like the first five, if not six, on your list will be taken care of fairly swiftly!! Isn't it nice to have such a list that you can achieve now!! :-)
